Politicians like to talk about bringing the price of prescriptions down, but per usual, the true leaders in society actually do it.
Central Planning vs. Vaccination
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.
Vaccines Save Lives
Rather than forcing the vaccine on the young or those with natural immunity, we should focus on vaccinating more older Americans, as well as older people in other countries. That is what will keep the mortality numbers down
Say “No” To Vaccine Mandates for Young Children
Our children are the most vulnerable minority. It is wrong to force them to risk their physical health and wellbeing as part of a scientific experiment, because we adults are afraid of what a virus will do to us.

For most viruses, natural immunity is better than vaccine-induced immunity, and that is also true for Covid.

Ending The Pandemic: Politicians Take Credit as Business Comes To The Rescue
When the pandemic ends, politicians will take credit, but the solution, as usual, began when politicians got out of the way.
Individualism is the Political Foundation of Healthcare
Individualism remains the best tool to deny government the power to force us to buy health insurance in general or forbid the purchase of the kind of health care plan we prefer.
Universal Freedom: The Only Hope for Health Care
“Universal Health Care” is the increasing drumbeat of advocates who want Americans to place all responsibility for their health care in the hands of government.
The Primary Obstacle To COVID-19 Mass Vaccination is Not The Free Market But Government Regulation
The effort to get vaccinated is akin to sitting at the back of a 9-month long DMV line. Welcome to vaccine central planning.
Incompetent Government with Absolute Power Kills Grandma and Grandpa
As early as last May, barely two months after the start of the state lockdown, a New York Post columnist groused: “So Gov. Andrew Cuomo killed Grandma and cratered New York’s economy. But he looked good doing it.”
Dr. Anthony S. Fauci’s Political Posturing In The Name of Science
It’s time to stop listening to Fauci, and time to stop treating his wildly inconsistent political posturing as if it carries any scientific authority.
Free Markets are Good Medicine
Those who prefer government management of medicine have a wider agenda: they hate the idea of a free market in medicine because they hate the idea of free markets in anything.

12 Times Lockdowners Were Wrong
This has been a year of astonishing policy failure. We are surrounded by devastation conceived and cheered by intellectuals and their political handmaidens.
How a Laissez-faire Capitalist Society Deals with a Vaccine

What do the Great Depression and the Second World War have in common with the coronavirus crisis of 2020? They have all been caused by government!

Emancipation From Lockdown in Florida
Governor Ron DeSantis has proven it: it is actually possible for a politician to wise up and do the right thing. In a sweeping order announced September 25, the governor has opened up the entire economy.

Abolish the FDA. Repeal medical licensing.
Governments Don’t Have Magic Wands To Ward off Asymmetric Information
The kind of reasoning that underpins the tired old asymmetric information bogeyman in health care falls straight into the behavioral symmetry between market participants and policy makers that is a core contribution of modern public choice economics: it is not believable to submit that governments have magic wands.
Canada’s Government-Run Health Care System Crumbled under COVID-19
As for Medicare for All, the COVID-19 crisis in Canada has shown the brutal consequences of government-run health care: shortages just when you need care the most.
