I, Chaos: The Simple Anatomy of an Interventionist Snowball

– December 4, 2020

“Intervention tends to beget intervention, which tends to beget still further intervention. In the long run, we are all worse off than we would have been had we just been able to avoid getting the government involved in the first place.” ~ Art Carden

The Global Guinea Pig: Airlines to Discriminate Based on Your Medical Status

– December 4, 2020

“Future politicians may be tempted to deny potential immigrant groups entry under the guise of a ‘public health threat.’ Digital health passes could be extended to include: influenza, hepatitis, measles, tuberculosis, Zika, HIV and STDs. And all because, during our trip down Covid-hysteria highway, we threw waivers and personal responsibility out the window.” ~ Micha Gartz

The Great Reset: Between Conspiracy and Wishful Thinking

– December 2, 2020

“It is quite bizarre that we tend to divide the world between awful private interests and those who use glowing words. Perhaps glowing words can be aligned with some private interests too.” ~ Alberto Mingardi

Don’t Confuse Free Markets with the Interventionist State

– December 2, 2020

“The important task for those who value personal freedom, economic liberty and the free market economy is to disabuse our fellow citizens from thinking that what we have is a fully capitalist system, and to appreciate that what critics of capitalism call for and want in the form of even more and bigger government would only magnify the corrosive trends already in play in the modern world.” ~ Richard M. Ebeling

For Many Churches, It Is Too Late

– December 1, 2020

“With all the carnage from these various “stringencies” designed to control the mostly uncontrollable, why focus on the tribulations of religious institutions? The history of liberty began with the idea of religious freedom. The realization that no great calamity would befall society if people were allowed to worship as they pleased then gave rise to all the other freedoms we took for granted until recently. It makes sense, then, that the long road to recovering our rights would begin here.” ~ Jeffrey Tucker

We Have Immune Systems, New York Times Reveals

– November 29, 2020

“This is something my mother knows. She taught it to me. Her mother taught it to her. They were all taught it in school. The knowledge has not been deprecated. It just strangely evaporated. Or perhaps censored. I don’t know. I do know this article is a welcome relief from the poppycock of mysophobia that has taken over the public square.” ~ Jeffrey Tucker

Corona-Absurdity Collides with California, New York, and Thanksgiving

– November 25, 2020

“If coronavirus takes a lunch break then it will soon enough take many more breaks throughout the day. Absurd eventually swallows itself. Even in California and New York.” ~ John Tamny

Americans are Finally Growing Weary of Lockdowns

– November 17, 2020

“In 2020, Americans discovered that governments were capable of impositions on private and commercial life that are without precedent. The Constitution, the Bill of Rights, the legislatures, and the courts did not protect us. The fight for a restoration of normal life will come down to public opinion, and that in turn will happen once an alternative view of public health competes with media falsehoods. It is long past time to rise up.” ~ Jeffrey Tucker

Even a Military-Enforced Quarantine Can’t Stop the Virus, Study Reveals

– November 13, 2020

“The lockdowners keep telling us to pay attention to the science. That’s what we are doing. When the results contradict their pro-compulsion narrative, they pretend that the studies do not exist and barrel ahead with their scary plans to disable all social functioning in the presence of a virus. Lockdowns are not science. They never have been. They are an experiment in social/political top-down management that is without precedent in cost to life and liberty.” ~ Jeffrey Tucker

It Was a Mistake to Close Schools, UK Study Concedes

– November 9, 2020

“In nine months of this hell, one might suppose there would have been a clear test of whether and to what extent severe outcomes from catching the virus were really associated with school attendance. It has finally arrived, and the news is not good for the lockdowners.” ~ Jeffrey Tucker

Monopoly vs. Monopoly: Sloppy Definitions Lead to Harmful Policy

– November 1, 2020

“A new term is needed for the highly-competitive innovators who achieve large market shares by creatively providing outstanding, innovative, and lower-cost products and services that are of such value that millions of people choose to buy their products. We can keep the term ‘monopoly,’ but it should be reserved for describing those government-created and sanctioned dinosaurs like the US Postal Service.” ~ Raymond C. Niles

Paul Krugman, the Lock-’Em-Down Economist

– October 30, 2020

“Those genuinely interested in finding the best solutions to complex problems do not automatically react with vitriol, smears, and petty insults, but carefully contemplate the ideas in question. One might speculate that the flippancy with which Krugman, Khullar, and the other elite pundits dismiss the injury caused by lockdowns reflects the truth that for them – as opposed to the underprivileged – these measures are a mere inconvenience.” ~ Jenin Younes
