What If People Actually Controlled the Government?

SHARE | PRINT | EMAIL

It seems remarkable that the executive order creating Schedule F was issued at all. It needs to be pressed upon any future reformers as a path to revisit, ideally with legislative support. Until that time, there will continue to be the grave problem that our elected officials are positioned to be little more than dancing marionettes while the administrative state wields all the real power.

The Astonishing Implications of Schedule F 

SHARE | PRINT | EMAIL

Trump came to office promising to drain the swamp but it was very late in his term before he figured out the means at his disposal to do just that. His final effort took place merely two weeks before the election that was decided in favor of his opponent Biden, who quickly reversed this action just two days following an ordered review that would have reclassified, and thus gained control over, a sizable portion of the administrative state.

We Must Never Forget

SHARE | PRINT | EMAIL

We have to move on. We have to rebuild our societies, reestablish our moral values and our rights, rebuild trust in science and trust within our communities. But to truly move on, we must face, understand and act on the roots of the catastrophe, and take full responsibility for the part each of us played. This is why we must not forget. We must never forget.

We Can All Be Evil and the Germans Were Nothing Special

SHARE | PRINT | EMAIL

For young Germans, the covid period has a bittersweet silver lining.  It has become clear, again, that the Nazis of the 1930s were entirely normal people, and that everyone else in the world can be a Nazi too. The Germans can release themselves from the belief that there is anything abnormally evil about being German. There is a potential Nazi in all of us.

At the Military Olympics, October 2019, Wuhan, China, Athletes Caught Covid

SHARE | PRINT | EMAIL

The case for deep investigations is obvious. That so many US military personnel became sick at a locked-down Wuhan event in October 2019 raises profound questions about the timeline, the source of the virus, and who knew what and when, and how a possible attempt to suppress the truth might have contributed to the spreading of a brutal policy the world over.

The Fauci Protocol: Treating Fauci’s Covid Diagnosis According to His Own ‘Standard of Care’

SHARE | PRINT | EMAIL

The Fauch has been quoted as saying: “I would prefer, and we all would prefer that people would be voluntarily getting vaccinated, but if they’re not gonna do that, sometimes you’ve got to do things that are unpopular.”

Fauci Finally Gets Covid: The Significance 

SHARE | PRINT | EMAIL

What Fauci was imagining – and very few people picked up on it at the time – was the construction of a new social system. It was not just about this virus. It was about all pathogens and the whole functioning of society. He believed – or he decided to come to believe – that a re-engineering of the social order could successfully beat back common pathogens.

The Origin and Operation of the US Administrative State 

SHARE | PRINT | EMAIL

Let’s not be naive about the prospects for change. It is going to require far more than merely electing a new class of supposed rulers via the democratic process. The real rulers are too smart to subject themselves to the business of elections. Those are designed to keep our minds busy with the belief that democracy still survives and therefore it is the voters, not the government, that is responsible for outcomes.

How the Pandemic Response Changed My Thinking 

SHARE | PRINT | EMAIL

What we really need is a system that is safe for freedom and human rights that protects those ideals even when the madness of crowds – or the arrogance of intellectuals or the lust for power of the bureaucrats – wants to scrap them. And that means revisiting the very foundations of what kind of world in which we want to live. What we once believed was a settled matter has been completely upended. Figuring out how to recover and restore is the great challenge of our times.

Ethnocentrism and Political Intolerance: A Two Year Retrospective on the Pandemic Response

SHARE | PRINT | EMAIL

Across our vast, heterogenous human populations of the US, a policy or a public health message that works where you live may very well harm people who live somewhere else, who have different cultures, beliefs and values. As one size may never fit all, it becomes increasingly important for scientists helping a pluralistic world to avoid political monism at all costs, to deliberately create space for alternative ideas.
