A Doctor Cannot Give his Professional Opinion? 

SHARE | PRINT | EMAIL

The authorities were wrong in every single aspect of the pandemic: the number of deaths, the number of deaths predicted, the lockdown, the masks, the faux-vaccine, the treatments, the medications, the collateral damage, the refusal to give treatment to the unvaccinated, the ethics. The covid fiasco and the resulting censorship and persecution will go down as one of the classic cases to be taught in medical schools for decades to come.

Brownstone Institute - The Covid Resistance Deserves the Nobel Peace Prize

The Covid Resistance Deserves the Nobel Peace Prize

SHARE | PRINT | EMAIL

It’s hard to see the Norwegian Nobel Committee defying the suffocating Covid narrative that took over the Western world, with a very few honourable exceptions. Of course if they were to do so, that would really stir things up and help to dismantle the narrative. One can but hope for the best while expecting otherwise.

I Weep for My Profession: Letter to the American Economic Association

SHARE | PRINT | EMAIL

Your announcement ensures that I will not attend the meetings under such absurd restrictions. Furthermore, it makes me weep for my profession, for it is strong evidence that today’s leaders of the world’s most prestigious organization of professional economists are unaware of basic facts about covid and, worse, ignorant of basic tenets of economics.

When Did Trump Change His Mind about Lockdowns?

SHARE | PRINT | EMAIL

Consider the incredible timeline here. Trump readily agreed to a two-week lockdown, even though he had no such direct power to order such a thing. He then agreed to a 30-day extension though all reports are that he was upset that he had done so. And even after 36 days, he was publicly critical of Republican governors who proposed a reopening.

After Covid: Twelve Challenges for a Shattered World 

SHARE | PRINT | EMAIL

No question that the administrative bureaucracies would lock down again under the same or new pretext. Yes, they will face more opposition the next time and trust in their wisdom has fallen off a cliff. But the pandemic response also granted them new powers of surveillance, enforcement, and hegemony. The scientism that drove the response informs everything they do. So the next time, it will be harder to restrain them.

Flagellantism Is the New Political Ritual 

Flagellantism Is the New Political Ritual 

SHARE | PRINT | EMAIL

It’s not just about eating bugs. It’s about a whole theory and practice of life and salvation itself, a new religion to replace all the old ones. Cough up your government-issued ID, send your package if you must, think twice before complaining about anything on social media, and figure out a way to channel your depression and despair into quiet humble gratitude and acquiescence., Don’t forget to recycle. The flagellants have taken over the world.

The Nudge: Ethically Dubious and Ineffective

SHARE | PRINT | EMAIL

By going with the grain of how we think and act, the state-employed ‘nudgers’ can covertly shape our behaviour in a direction deemed desirable by the regime of the day – an appealing prospect for any government. The ubiquitous deployment of these behavioural strategies – which frequently rely on inflating emotional distress to change behaviour – raises profound moral questions.
