– March 18, 2021

“Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, on the one-year anniversary of the lockdowns, invited back the scientists behind the Great Barrington Declaration, signed at the offices of the American Institute for Economic Research, for a roundtable on the Coronavirus and the policy response.

Stop the Cartoonish Excuses for Covid Restrictions

– March 18, 2021

“Pro-lockdown economists faux scientifically chant ‘Reduce externalities!’ Libertarians with a weak commitment to liberty self-righteously claim to be the true upholders of liberty by repeating nonstop ‘We must honor the non-aggression principle!’ But neither these economists nor these libertarians take the time to consider the complex real-world details from which individuals’ rights emerge and in which these rights are rooted and defined.” ~ Donald J. Boudreaux

– March 18, 2021

School Closure Advocates and Their Own Actions

– March 18, 2021

“It is impossible to look past the blatant hypocrisy and disregard for society Fiegl-Ding’s advocacy for school closure now represents in light of these findings. We have gotten to know this sort of hypocrisy all too well throughout this pandemic which illustrates the principle that we all share the burden of lockdowns equally, but some more equal than others” ~ Ethan Yang

Debts, Deficits, and the Entitlement Crisis

– March 17, 2021

“The US government’s debt is soaring like never before and promises to only bring economic stagnation if not outright disaster. Looking past Covid-19, we should strive to implement bold reforms to our costly but important entitlement programs to truly deliver on fiscal stability.

Biden’s “Burn-Rate” Rescue Act

– March 17, 2021

“The Supreme Court warned in 1971, ‘The history of government grants of a continuing cash subsidy indicates that such programs have almost always been accompanied by varying measures of control and surveillance.’ The only certainty is that the ultimate bill for the ongoing deluge of federal benefits will be far higher in taxes and lost prosperity than politicians admit. Will Americans recognize the MAAWS peril to their own rights and liberties?” ~ James Bovard

More “Covid Suicides” than Covid Deaths in Kids

– March 17, 2021

“Society needs to remember that the stolen Covid generation will one day run the country. Teachers resisting returning to class should recognize that this generation currently locked-in to bedroom Zoom classes will one day care for us in our old age.

Vaccine Passports are Cronyism

– March 16, 2021

“Win-win outcomes arise from the capitalist mindset that others are peers whose freedom to opt-in or opt-out of any transaction we respect. Such a mindset orients us towards service and away from coercion. The crony mindset rationalizes exploiting the power of the state to profit by coercion and is anything but lovely.” ~ Barry Brownstein

Unemployment in Free vs. Locked-Down States

– March 16, 2021

“States like New York and California, where millions have been driven into financial ruin, imposed top-down draconian measures in order to ‘stop the spread.’ They have only registered significantly worse outcomes, on both a disease burden front in addition to the ruinous economic and societal side effects of lockdowns. Not a single top-down restriction supposedly intended to ‘stop the spread’ did anything statistically demonstrable to quell the virus problem.” ~ Jordan Schachtel

The Gradual Return of Good Sense

– March 15, 2021

“The lockdowners committed themselves to something previously unthinkable. To admit error at this point is too intellectually and psychologically upsetting. Regardless, we can be confident that as the years roll on, there will be a growing consensus that, as Jay Bhattacharya has said, lockdowns are the worst policy error of our lifetimes and many generations.” ~ Jeffrey Tucker

Non-COVID Death Epidemic of the Future

– March 15, 2021

“There will be a rash of deaths that could have been prevented in the recent past and more so in the coming future, from not-screening, not diagnosing and not being able to care for. We might all rue the day when the public health policy experts did not consider the ramifications of their singular tunnel-vision focus.” ~ Parvez Dara, MD, FACP, MBA
