Some Covid Links

Writing in the Wall Street Journal, UCLA medical-school professor Joseph Ladapo rightly laments the “epidemic of ‘Covid Mania’,” correctly noting that “[t]he problem isn’t only the overreaction to the virus but the diminution of every other problem.” Two other slices: The novel coronavirus has caused suffering and heartbreak, particularly for older adults and their loved ones. But it also has a low mortality rate among most people and especially the young—estimated at 0.01% for people...

Ad Hominem Is a Fallacy, Not an Argument

In my latest column for AIER, I argue against ad hominem argumentation. A slice: An even weaker argument against the Great Barrington Declaration is the observation that some people associated with AIER say, write, or tweet some things that other people find to be beyond the pale. I don’t wish here to assess, and much less to defend, everything ever said or written by everyone affiliated with AIER. Undoubtedly, were I to survey it all I’d find much with which I disagree. But the same is...

Some Non-Covid Links

Andrew Gutmann explains – in this brilliant letter shared by Bari Weiss – why he’s pulling his daughter from one of New York City’s elite private schools. A slice: I object to a definition of systemic racism, apparently supported by Brearley, that any educational, professional, or societal outcome where Blacks are underrepresented is prima facie evidence of the aforementioned systemic racism, or of white supremacy and oppression. Facile and unsupported beliefs such as these are the polar...

Some Covid Links

Reason‘s Robby Soave reports yet further evidence of the reality and severity of Covid Derangement Syndrome, and of the menace to humanity that is Anthony Fauci. A slice: Fauci responded by largely echoing her [Joy Reid’s] concerns. He eventually conceded that people who were vaccinated could have unmasked gatherings in their own homes under some limited conditions, but stressed continued mask wearing outside the home. “I don’t understand why that freaks people out,” said Reid. “Get a...

If You’re Immune, Act Immune

Without mentioning Fauci by name, Florida governor Ron DeSantis nevertheless appropriately slaps him down. (For proof of the reality and severity of Covid Derangement Syndrome, you need look no further than Fauci’s insistence that fully vaccinated people continue to avoid normal living. That the media continue to treat Fauci as if he deserves to be taken seriously only strengthens that proof.) Comments

A Good Question

Steve Hardy, a friend from Nevada, sent to me an e-mail that I share here with his kind permission: Friday’s Wall Street Journal reports that approximately 5800 people who have been vaccinated have gotten Covid out of 66 million people vaccinated.  This is .0008%. And ALL of these cases have been mild and haven’t required hospitalization.  The stupid part of the article says that officials say that even vaccinated people are at risk and should continue to wear masks and practice social...

Some Covid Links

Those of you who dismissed – and who continue to dismiss – those of us who warn that the Covidocracy will not willingly relinquish its power might wish to consult this report from Jarrett Skorup; it’s titled “Michigan Moving To Make ‘Emergency’ COVID-19 Mandates Permanent.” A slice: State bureaucrats are moving to impose permanent regulations that would mandate the following and more on all Michigan businesses: mask wearing whenever employees are within six feet of someone else, daily...

Some Covid Links

Joakim Book bemoans the deep and unhinged hostility of so many people to those of us who question Covid-19 lockdowns and the mainstream narrative that supports them. Toby Young makes the case against vaccine passports. A slice: The strongest objection to making access to any service or activity contingent on producing evidence that you don’t have an infectious disease is that it’s an inversion of the Common Law principle that everything should be permitted unless the law specifically...

Private Entities Should be Free to Choose

Here’s a letter to a new correspondent: Mr. W__: Thanks for your e-mail. I share your fear of vaccine passports, as well as your hope that businesses in jurisdictions without passport mandates will not require customers and employees to show such passports. I cannot, however, agree that businesses and other private organizations not be allowed to choose to require customers and employees to show such such passports. You’re correct that fear of Covid is far out of proportion to its true...
