“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?

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.
Four countries have the desire and potential to destroy the free world and bring us to a new Dark Age with them as rulers—a real Apocalypse.
What passes for “deregulation” or market-based reform has limited connection with any call for a truly laissez-faire capitalist United States.
Video of George Reisman’s TedX talk on socialism.
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
Any element of self-sacrifice in war is a betrayal of our soldiers and the American freedom they fight for.
There’s Just One Problem: That War Failed
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.
He who expects a rational economic system from socialism will be forced to re-examine his views.
The exclusion of free initiative and individual responsibility, on which the successes of private enterprise depend, constitutes the most serious menace to socialist economic organization.
Is there no way in which some kind of economic calculation might be tied up with a socialist system?
Looking over that list of hundreds of branches of the federal government also makes clear the absurdity and total misinformation of those who daily insist that America is a wild land of unregulated “laissez-faire,” where anything goes, with government being some small, poor, and starved appendage to an “out-of-control” free market.
For most viruses, natural immunity is better than vaccine-induced immunity, and that is also true for Covid.
Nazi Germany was a socialist state, not a capitalist one and socialism, understood as an economic system based on government ownership of the means of production, positively requires a totalitarian dictatorship.
Virtually all discussion of health care policy today avoids explicit reference to underlying principles.
For the government to do things “for you,” it must have the power to do things “to you.”
Government has no “public health” role. It has only a “public freedom” role.
Joe Biden’s demagoguery, arrogant impatience, and dictatorial manner do not and cannot change reality. At the end of the day, his policies can only lead to a financial and economic disaster.
Ayn Rand held that moral principles must be adopted as absolutes and that a single compromise will subvert a principle, as such. This holds true for the actions taken by nations as well as by individuals. The founder’s failure to faithfully abide by their own “self-evident” truths offers a perfect illustration of what follows from a single breach of fundamental and guiding principle.
The truth is that, aside from the plantation owners (a tiny minority), the white population of the South was hurt by slavery—kept poor by it—rather than enriched.
Virtually every politician runs for office on a campaign platform that promises to extend concrete and specific benefits to various selected groups through the taxing or regulating powers of government.
