Brownstone Institute - Science-Totalitarianism Now Threatens Liberalism

Science-Totalitarianism Now Threatens Liberalism

SHARE | PRINT | EMAIL

Faced with the techno-scientification of everything, those of us wedded to the ideals of liberalism urgently need to recognise this threat. We need to recognise that though it is often useful, science cannot transcend the human condition. However much opportunity it brings, it cannot save us from being the limited, complex creatures that we are.

Brownstone Institute - The DOJ Quietly Prosecutes the Covid Resistance

The DOJ Quietly Prosecutes the Covid Resistance

SHARE | PRINT | EMAIL

There is no indication that the powerful will be held accountable for the damage they imposed. Instead, the Biden Administration has decided to target citizens who resisted its irrational edicts. The same edicts for which they insist they must be granted an “amnesty.” Such actions only increase the devastation from a disastrous policy response.

Who Will Deliver Justice to Our Service Members?

While Pfizer & Moderna were testing rats in their labs, our government had their own guinea pigs lining up for the largest biomedical experiment the world has ever seen, except these were not test animals. These were our United States service members–our men and women in uniform.

Before Preparing for Pandemics, We Need Better Evidence of Risk

SHARE | PRINT | EMAIL

There should be time, and urgency, to fix this evidence gap. Not because the next pandemic is just around the corner, but because the costs of getting things wrong will have long-term implications that may be far harder to address once wholesale changes are initiated. As a result, what is prudent is to give the evidence pause for thought, to identify the knowledge gaps, address them, and to pursue better evidence-based policy.

When Virtue Signals Wear Science as a Skin Suit

SHARE | PRINT | EMAIL

Virtue-signaling climate scientists and their dutiful DOD disciples, who ignore real science and adopt policies that will impoverish societies for no proven benefit, will be exposed and repudiated by history’s greatest physicists, whose timeless wisdom and insights reveal feckless promoters, who hijack science in the name of politics.

The EU Wants to Spy on Europeans’ Internet Use

The EU Wants to Spy on Europeans’ Internet Use

SHARE | PRINT | EMAIL

The rule would require all internet browsers to trust an additional root certificate from an agency (or a regulated entity) from each of the national governments of each one of the EU member states. For the non-technical readers, I will explain what a root certificate is, how internet trust has evolved, and what Article 45 does to this. And then I will highlight some of the commentary from the tech community on this matter.

Australian Medical Regulator Finally Relaxes Covid Gag Order

Australian Medical Regulator Finally Relaxes Covid Gag Order

SHARE | PRINT | EMAIL

Next year, the implementation of changes to the National Law threaten to further silence doctors on matters that could affect confidence in public health initiatives. Both AMPS and the AMA are opposed to the changes, which the AMA argues “will have major impacts on the lives and work of medical practitioners without improving standards of care for patients.”

We Must Dial Up Our Jabs Against the Tyrants

We Must Dial Up Our Jabs Against the Tyrants

SHARE | PRINT | EMAIL

The petitioner or the letter writer might be well advised to plan a two-pronged protest when next submitting a statement on a proposed bill or exhorting their MP to vote against a given bill. Just for practice. For we’re all aware, and thoroughly sick of, the kind of stock responses from MPs who dismiss valid concerns with obfuscation, conflating issues for maximum ambiguity, and indulging in a patronising tone to boot. If we know it’s coming, after our initial left jab, what is our feint and right cross?

New Study Confirms CDC and Other ‘Experts’ Hurt Children for Nothing

As often discussed, in a sane world, this systematic review would permanently shut the door on further discussions of forced child masking. Higher quality research has confirmed that there is no evidence masks are effective and eliminating bias and confounders unsurprisingly shows the same result with children.

Is Free Speech a Relic in America?

Is Free Speech a Relic in America?

SHARE | PRINT | EMAIL

Is the First Amendment becoming a historic relic? On July 4, 2023, federal judge Terry Doughty condemned the Biden administration for potentially “the most massive attack against free speech in United States history.” That verdict was ratified by a federal appeals court decision in September 2023 that concluded that Biden administration “officials have engaged in a broad pressure campaign designed to coerce social-media companies into suppressing speakers, viewpoints, and content disfavored by the government.”
