What's the Point of the Administrative Class?

What’s the Point of the Administrative Class?

SHARE | PRINT | EMAIL

The administrative class – at all levels, in all organizations – portrays itself as indispensable. Nothing would get done without the smooth operation of the internal mechanics of a company, a government agency, any group you care to mention. Tasks must be performed, memos sent, regulations and procedures codified.

The Heroes Who Still Fight

The Heroes Who Still Fight

SHARE | PRINT | EMAIL

For all my Covid writing, I probably don’t do enough to publicize the heroes of our freedom movement or the victories “our side” has achieved. One group that’s clearly made a profound difference – and saved countless lives – is the organization No College Mandates, co-founded by a former California lawyer, Lucia Sinatra.

Question One Narrative, Question Them All

Question One Narrative, Question Them All

SHARE | PRINT | EMAIL

It is a shame that some people still don’t question other narratives after experiencing profound injustices and horrendous treatments during the Covid-19 response for the so-called “greater good.” The journey to find the truth is nevertheless personal and relatively painful, where we are led to confront ourselves, our humility, faith, and principles. I don’t think it is easy to impose that on others, but we can plant seeds, for they may grow on fertile soil.

Is ‘Avian Flu’ Anything to Fear?

Is ‘Avian Flu’ Anything to Fear?

SHARE | PRINT | EMAIL

The very fact that, as Mercola indicates, avian flu has been ‘weaponized’ in various ways that make it far more likely for humans to be infected by it, is a smoking gun marking foul play by those who could not, and did not want to, leave well enough alone. For one thing, given that before this superfluous research the avian flu virus was not airborne, and thus less likely to infect humans who were not in contact with infected animals, it requires no genius to infer that certain parties (known to us all) had every reason to want to increase its lethality. They should be arrested on the basis of natural or common law, on grounds of having shown themselves to be inimical to the human species, of which they can hardly be said to be legitimate members.

Enough With These Dangerous Calculations

Enough With These Dangerous Calculations

All of which underscores the more general point: government and its connected scientists simply cannot be trusted with this kind of power. The last experience illustrates why people like Barry, and many others besides, cannot and should not be trusted with power. We have laws and guaranteed liberties that can never be taken away, not even during a pandemic. It is never worth ruining lives to fulfill anyone’s abstract vision of what constitutes the greater good.

Six Explanations for Rising Vaccine Hesitancy

Six Explanations for Rising Vaccine Hesitancy

SHARE | PRINT | EMAIL

In April last year, UNICEF reported that vaccination coverage had decreased in 112 countries and 67 million children had missed out on at least one vaccination over 2020–23 because of lockdown-caused disruptions and diminished confidence in vaccines. Measles rates had doubled globally in 2022 compared to 2021 and polio was up by 16 percent. Overall, UNICEF recorded “the largest sustained backslide in childhood immunisation in 30 years.”

A View of Kant from the East

A View of Kant from the East

SHARE | PRINT | EMAIL

Kant literally changed the way we think about ourselves; what Copernicus achieved for astronomy – altering the assumptions of the place of planet Earth in what we now understand as our solar system – Kant did for philosophy, which is why he thought of himself as bringing about a Copernican revolution in philosophy. In brief: Kant demonstrated, with thorough argumentation, that instead of humans experiencing the world ‘passively’ by merely registering on their senses the impressions of external ‘reality,’ we actually contribute to the way the world appears to us.

Preferred Pronouns Are Now Mandatory

Preferred Pronouns Are Now Mandatory

SHARE | PRINT | EMAIL

Personally, I blame Neil Gorsuch, the supposedly conservative originalist Justice who joined with the liberals in Bostock (he actually wrote the majority opinion) in arguing that constitutional protections for sex applied equally to gender identity. His facile logic? That it is impossible for an employer to make an adverse employment decision based on “transgender status” without thereby discriminating “because of sex”, since a man who suffers adverse treatment because he “identifies” as a woman is treated differently than he would be if he were a woman who “identifies” as a woman. Er, yes, Neil. But the point is he isn’t a woman. This point of mere biological fact was lost on such a lofty legal mind, unfortunately – and now a country of 350 million is living with the idiotic and tyrannical consequences.
