Dictatorships use their connections to the free world to get unearned respect, steal technology and money, and spread propaganda. The best solution would be to achieve the highest degree of separation possible between the free world and the unfree world.
The massive political power for unelected bureaucrats to arbitrarily dehumanize Americans with mandates, fines, lockdowns, and prison at whim is what the Biden Administration, DOJ, and CDC are now fighting for.
“Scott Atlas stated the simple fact that immunity is higher than those with antibodies, whereupon Dr. Fauci criticizes him without contradicting what was actually said. Stating a simple scientific fact is not ‘extraordinarily inappropriate.’ What is going on?”

Ibram X. Kendi’s antiracism – like racism – is an ideology that manages to indoctrinate and segregate. Far from healing history’s wounds, Ibram X. Kendi’s “antiracism” sows disharmony. Maybe we should go back to reading liberalism to our children. By liberalism, I mean a cluster of ideas that includes equal freedom, equal treatment under the law, and colorblindness.
Were those of us who, after the end of the Cold War, the rise of the Internet, and the turn of the 20th century, celebrated the inevitably of progress and freedom similarly wallowing in a negligent naivete about the evils that were waiting for the right moment to unleash themselves on the world?
Don’t discard those “I love Capitalism” T-shirts just yet.
Eban’s article adds tremendous detail about the great lengths to which our Fauci-led cabal of officials worked hard to suppress dissent on the question of lab-vs-natural origin.
Russia today provides a perfect example of the combination of the two philosophical archetypes Ayn Rand described in her brilliant essay, “For the New Intellectual.”
The ideal of America was for people to be united under the principle of individual rights.
The vaccine for this virus should never have been mandated. Having done so, public health has done itself deep harm. One wonders if the reputation of vaccines in general can recover.
This battle is much larger than the legal status of Ivermectin. What’s really at stake here is the idea of medical freedom itself. And freedom is a precondition for scientific inquiry and the search for the truth. It is also essential for health.
By all means, forget about Covid and live life as normally as possible in defiance of those who live to foster fear. But, never forget the disastrous Covid restrictions that created such destruction. We cannot let anyone off the hook, much less pretend that the policy disaster that created billions of personal tragedies never happened.
Yesterday, Florida followed Norway by not recommending the Covid vaccine for children. The CDC recommends them.
President Biden touted his climate agenda in his state of the union address despite the rising price of oil and natural gas, which has helped to spur the worst inflation in the United States in many years.
The science behind pandemic management needs to be decentralized and include genuine discussion and debate rather than allowing a small cabal to take full power while censoring everyone else.
CDC’s drastic reversal on vaccine mandates seems little to do with a change in “the science,” and more to do with improving Democrats’ dismal approval ratings ahead of the November elections.
What Putin fears is not just NATO’s defensive armaments but their ideas—most fundamentally, America’s arms and ideas, specifically the concept of individual rights.
The AstraZeneca Covid-19 vaccine is used in 170 other countries, but was never approved in the US. What explains this? I fear the answer might be cronyism- a troubling and harmful alliance between a handful of drug producers and the federal government.
“I believe that totalitarianism in the form of some kind of national socialism is on its way. That the Democrats are pushing for it and the Republicans are impotent – they’re not strong enough – they don’t fight it the right way.”
Politicians like to talk about bringing the price of prescriptions down, but per usual, the true leaders in society actually do it.
The key to Ayn Rand’s version of rational egoism lies in understanding the nature of values, and the role they play in human life.
On Martin Luther King Day–and every day–we should focus on the antidote to racism and alternative to racial thinking: individualism.
Medical freedom for all would and should include insurance rates and employment contracts that accounted for avoidable risks. And such freedom ends where another person’s reasonable risk ends.
Poverty cannot be reduced, in the long term, by “redistribution” of wealth. It can only be done by leaving people free to produce and keep the wealth they create.
