The Right of Exit Is What Keeps Society Prosperous and Peaceful

– March 21, 2021

“If we’re willing to trust something as supremely important as our language to cooperation, how much more should we be willing to trust to cooperation our education, health care, wages, and the many other things we think are so important as to require coercion?” ~ Antony Davies

Why are We Vaccinating Children against Covid-19?

– March 20, 2021

“Vaccinating our children with a possibly harmful (untested) vaccine to them and with no basis given their risk profile, must be pushed back upon hard by parents. Parents are the voices of their children now on vaccinating their children and on the other looming disaster, Covid-19 ‘vaccine passports,’ that are as illogical and dangerous as vaccines for children under 12! Americans must stand up now to this! ” ~ AIER Contributing Authors

The 2020 Recession: Blame Lockdowns, Not the Virus

– March 20, 2021

“Lockdowns have caused an unprecedented level of economic damage that has far exceeded any event in modern history be it another pandemic or a financial crisis. That is because unlike any other challenge in history, governments across the world forcefully stopped society from reacting and recovering. It should be uncontroversial and frankly, intellectually honest, to say that it was lockdowns that caused the misery that we were forced to endure, not Covid-19.” ~ Ethan Yang & Jack Nicastro

Essential and Non-Essential: Never Again

– March 19, 2021

“People’s communities, jobs, hobbies, and everyday lives are essential to their survival and flourishing. It is unethical and immoral for central planners and public health officials to attempt to control the spread of a virus – however deadly it may be to certain demographics – at the expense of individuals’ natural rights, physical health, mental health, and metaphysical well-being: that elusive, invaluable thing called ‘happiness.'” ~ Jack Nicastro

This Is a Pandemic of Fiscal Profligacy

– March 19, 2021

“Very few seem to care that we’re closing in on $30 trillion in debt, the symptom of our insane spending. In fact, it has become fashionable to claim that we can borrow without fear of a debt crisis or of any consequences. Admittedly, one reason for this belief is that people like me have been warning about the mounting debt and the potential deleterious implications for years.” ~ Veronique de Rugy

The End of America?

– March 19, 2021

“The new biofascism in the West, very much driven by Big Tech leaders, and soon to be exploited by our enemies geopolitically, is a war against free human beings and against the qualities that make us human. Why is this? Why develop policies that punish, encumber and restrict human contact in analog (unsurveilled, unmediated) spaces? Because human contact is the great revolutionary force when it comes to human freedom and resistance to this form of comprehensive biofascism – the biofascism represented by the New Normal.” ~ Naomi Wolf

Tell Me Again How Governments Are Essential

– March 19, 2021

“I’m still routinely shocked that people think governments are essential to the operating of civilized life and crucial for our well-being. The more interactions like these that I have, the more confused I am that not everyone jumps ship and embraces a smarter world. So: tell me again, why do we need governments?” ~ Joakim Book

Can Private Businesses Legally and Morally Force Customers to Wear Masks?

– March 18, 2021

“In practical terms, businesses may fear that if they do not keep up pandemic LARPing frightened members of the public may take their business elsewhere. Any decent business, though, knows how to handle heterogeneous customer preferences. Transition back to normal by initiating masked and maskless hours or locations and allow customers and employees to opt into either based on their preferences.” ~ Robert E. Wright

Contra Nicholas Kristof, Presidential Ink Will Never ‘Scrub’ Away Poverty

– March 17, 2021

“It cannot be stressed enough that if poverty were about money, then it would have been wholly erased long ago given the trillions spent on its mitigation. Admirable as Kristof’s idealism is, it’s just that. Nothing more. The perfect world he envisions cannot and will not be created by the stroke of a pen.” ~ John Tamny

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

A Short History of America’s Foes

– March 17, 2021

“Americans can reunite culturally by exulting their anti-Removal, anti-slavery, and pro-Civil Rights history and rejecting the too-often-untoward policies and actions of its governments and specific individuals, as suggested by the Woodson Center’s 1776 Project. And prosperity will return with economic freedom, especially the termination and disavowal of lockdowns and politicized economic planning more generally.” ~ Robert E. Wright

Do Some Workers And Business Owners Secretly Prefer Lockdown Misery?

– March 16, 2021

“About what’s been said, it should be stressed once again that it’s in no way a defense of the indefensible lockdowns. It’s merely an attempt to understand why some might prefer that the indefensible remain. One possibility is that a lack of competition is comfort for those who would prefer not to compete.” ~ John Tamny
