– January 4, 2021

“No widespread event in my lifetime comes close to the Covid lockdowns as an instance in which we human beings have so ignorantly and arrogantly chosen to live not merely inharmoniously with nature but in direct and hostile opposition to it.

Pandemic Response Is Our Vietnam

– January 4, 2021

“People are starting to question the failed strategy of lockdowns, much as they questioned the wisdom of LBJ’s Vietnam strategy. While nonviolent protest is certainly warranted, especially when it comes to the pressing need for our children to return to school, we need an end to the ‘state of emergency’ that enables governors and mayors to lock us down in the first place.” ~ Donald Siegel & Robert Sauer

Freedom versus Paternalism in the Coming Decade

– January 3, 2021

“There appears to be a groundswell of economic ignorance and stupidity facing us, and even more than usual. What this means for friends of freedom and practitioners of sound, free market economics, however, is a need to redouble our efforts, and not wallow in despair and disappointment.

But their very failures can serve as openings to more reasonable and rational policies looking to the future.” ~ Richard M. Ebeling

– January 1, 2021

“Like so many instances before, another top medical journal has now contributed to the widespread dissemination of incomplete and misleading scientific inferences.

When I Knew More Than Hayek

– December 31, 2020

“The main problem with central planning is that a great many dispersed individuals have local knowledge that cannot be collected and processed even by the most noble, intelligent, and hard-working planner. Progress against Covid-19 requires respecting the message of Hayek’s paper, by heeding the local knowledge of doctors fighting Covid-19 in their clinics and hospitals.” ~ Arthur M. Diamond, Jr.

Hollywood’s “Illiberal Left”

– December 30, 2020

“Cancellation runs counter to its own goals. If we hope to live by the best ideals that we know of, cancellation prevents us from discovering the full suite of options, instead committing us to the way things already are. And if the aim is to shut down undesirable viewpoints and convert folks to more honorable causes, why pursue the most polarizing approach imaginable, rather than having an open and honest debate?” ~ Fiona Harrigan

– December 29, 2020

“As Trenchard urged Britons in 1720, ‘Let mankind therefore learn experience from so many misfortunes, and bear no longer to hear the worst things called by the best names.’ Trenchard and Gordon’s Cato’s Letters provided ideals for the American Founders in claiming liberty.
