The Covid response ruined everything the world identified with America: freedom, rights, decentralism, commerce, individual liberty, and bravery in the face of trial. Governments together with all the commanding heights betrayed all those values. We need to know why. We need to know how. We need to know who.
FDA Policies Keep People Sick and Create a False Sense of Security
There’s no Democratic or Republican way to promote quality. There is only what works, and that’s letting consumers reward quality by making their own health decisions.
