Caution or Catastrophe: Public Health’s COVID Response

fauci

Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, proponents of lockdowns, shelter-in-place orders, mask mandates and other coercive government interventions have characterized these measures as benevolently “erring on the side of caution.” Now, as the grim toll of those public health measures comes into ever-sharper focus, it’s increasingly clear those characterizations were terribly wrong. What’s less readily apparent, however, is how the very use of the “erring on the side of caution” framing was injurious in itself—by thwarting reasoned debate of public health policies, diverting attention from...

U.S. Inflation Climbs To 7.5%

2022 02 10 08 21

Rents rose 0.5% last month in another of a series of sharp increases since last summer. The cost of rent — the biggest expense for many households —has jumped almost 4% in the past year. Food prices also increased again, up almost 1% in January. The cost of groceries have climbed 7.4% in the last 12 months — a 14-year high. Dairy and fruit showed the biggest increases last month. Energy prices rose almost 1% last month due to a large spike in the cost of electricity. Cold weather also boosted demand. Gas and natural gas prices fell slightly, but the respite for consumers probably won’t...

“I Hold It That A Little Rebellion Now And Then Is A Good Thing”

2022 01 06 07 26

“This uneasiness has produced acts absolutely unjustifiable,” Jefferson wrote, “but I hope they will provoke no severities from their governments.” He didn’t approve of the insurrection, but he feared how the authorities might respond. “Unsuccessful rebellions indeed generally establish the incroachments on the rights of the people which have produced them,” a fact that “should render honest republican governors so mild in their punishment of rebellions, as not to discourage them too much.” Were insurrections like this one a threat to democracy? No, they were a concomitant of democracy....

Vaccines, Autonomy, and Mandates: A Libertarian Analysis

pexels nataliya vaitkevich 5863389

Prefatory Note Given the subject matter discussed below, I believe it prudent to state at the outset that I am not at all opposed to vaccinations themselves: indeed, I have received a COVID-19 vaccine, as well as all other normal-course vaccinations recommended for someone my age. Yet there are, it seems to me, interesting, difficult questions surrounding the state’s role in promoting or mandating vaccines. The goal here is to start a conversation not about the effectiveness of vaccines, but about the individual’s sphere of autonomy and what kinds of medical decisions are within it, and...

Anaheim Cops, ‘Like a Firing Squad,’ Execute Man Holding a Water Bottle

brandon lopez 1050x525

Last September, Brandon Lopez, 33, led police on a chase before crashing his car. He was suspected of driving a stolen vehicle, had several warrants out for his arrest, and was mentally ill. If he actually committed all the crimes of which he was accused, however, Lopez deserved to go to jail. He will not be going to jail anymore though, because police reportedly mistook a water bottle in a bag—for a gun—and killed him. Lopez is the cousin of Anaheim city Councilman Johnathan Hernandez who says on the night he was killed, Lopez was experiencing a mental health crisis when Anaheim police...

Women Are Responsible For Nearly Half Of Recent Gun Sales

2021 09 16 08 16

SAN DIEGO— Close to half of all new U.S. gun buyers since the beginning of 2019 have been women, a shift for a market long dominated by men, according to a new study. The preliminary results from the 2021 National Firearms Survey, designed by Deborah Azrael of the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health and Matthew Miller of Northeastern University, show an estimated 3.5 million women became new gun owners from January 2019 through April of this year. About 4 million men became new gun owners over that period, they found. For decades, other surveys have found that around 10% to 20% of...
