How Much Should Young People Be Punished?

Summary:
Great debate on lockdowns. I like what retired Professor John A. Lee has to say. Economist Dan O’Brien is also very succinct: How much punishment are we willing to inflict on young people? The guy who put this together clearly doesn’t like the message of Professor Tomas Ryan, the advocate of lockdowns, as evidenced by the crawls he types on the screen as Ryan talks. I found this alternately amusing and annoying. Trivia question: What is the number of people under age 25 who have died of COVID-19 in Ireland? The answer is in the 16-minute video.
