Blinded by a Blizzard of Data

– November 28, 2020

“What’s important is that we address each risk with commensurate care. That the media has consistently reported on Covid without appropriate context suggests that historians will look back on 2020 less for its outbreak of Covid than for its outbreak of hysteria.” ~ Antony Davies & James R. Harrigan

Fragile and Unsustainable Lies

– November 28, 2020

“Just as a fiat currency can quickly lose value through the self-interested actions of market participants, so too can lockdowns dissolve. In fact, in both cases governmental attempts to bolster its Lie (that its monetary policies or lockdowns work) will serve to speed the inevitable. If policymakers do not take the ‘Thanksgiving Rebellion’ as a serious warning, they are dumber or more hubristic than even the most pessimistic have claimed.” ~ Robert E. Wright

Darth Sidious’s Lockdown

– November 27, 2020

“Scrupling the ill consequences of frenzy and restrictions is the least we can expect from anyone who has ever maintained pretensions of giving some presumption to the freedom of association and other liberal principles.” ~ Daniel B. Klein

The Strangely Unscientific Masking of America

– November 27, 2020

“The substantial evidence that these mechanisms are not effective, particularly beyond their duration, has been automatically rejected for too long. This is not science: it is politics, and those within the profession who have refused to examine their confirmation biases, or manipulated the evidence to score political points, are utterly unqualified for the job.” ~ Jenin Younes

The Media’s Covid War on the Dakotas

– November 27, 2020

“What’s driving the anti-Dakotas vendetta is that the mainstream media overwhelmingly support authoritarian measures and governors of both states have resisted them. It’s all about politics, sensationalism, and possibly envy.” ~ Michael Fumento

The Lasting Consequences of Lockdowns

– November 26, 2020

“Alongside the immediate consequences of lockdowns, our leaders should consider the long-term problems as well to ensure we do not pass along a degraded shell of our society to our posterity in exchange for a short-term goal. Years into the future, we should be able to be proud of who we are, not who we used to be.” ~ Ethan Yang

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

The Blizzard of Bogus Journalism on Covid

– November 20, 2020

“The world is being seriously misled by major media organs. The politicians are continuing to panic and impose draconian controls, fully nine months into this, and despite mountains of evidence of the real harm the lockdowns are causing everyone. If you haven’t lost faith in politicians and major media at this point, you have paid no attention to what they have been doing for the better part of this catastrophic year.” ~ Jeffrey Tucker

Getting Covid Is Not a Crime

– November 18, 2020

“As states begin to lock down/lock up again, our choice remains clear: one simple, tried and true rule that respects individual rights and liberties, or myriads of oppressive rules that work at cross purposes and are certain to be mocked now and in the future.” ~ Robert E. Wright

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

Does Science Really Demand that Bars and Restaurants Close?

– November 17, 2020

“Until we start questioning ‘the science’ or demand that our policymakers stop hiding behind the boastful yet ambiguous label of ‘science’ and adequately identify precisely what evidence they are following, we will be sucked into an endless spiral of cyclical shutdowns.” ~ Micha Gartz

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
