  • Fifteen Signs You’re in an Abusive Relationship with the Government

    "The use of fear and enforcement tactics to shut down dialogue and debate have never led to positive outcomes in any personal, societal, or global interactions." ~ Micha Gartz & Lucio Saverio-Eastman

  • Pathological and Parochial Altruism in the Age of Fear

    "A healthy altruism already resides in the concepts of liberty, free markets, free trade, and exchanges that are beneficial to each individual. If in the spirit of entrepreneurship, the defectors from the status quo, the disruptors and ingenious can rise up to challenge the “new normal” and break away from the cult of blind obedience and pathological altruism, then there is still hope." ~ Lucio Saverio Eastman

  • Max Forrester Eastman: The Gangster of the Pen

    "Max Eastman published detailed explanations that socialism, passed off as a social science, is in fact a disguised religious belief. Eastman revealed evidence of spiritual and animist elements in Marxism that, despite Karl Marx and others’ attempts to remove and erase them, are undeniably present throughout socialist ideology." ~Lucio Saverio-Eastman

  • Why I am Not a Neoliberal

    "The world of emergency policy-making under the direct guidance of epidemiology modeling is illustrative not only in its scientific failures, but its habit of placing deliberative democratic institutions and even cherished constitutional rights in a subservient position to what they herald as 'the science.' The final twist, however, is that the neoliberalism critics on the illiberal left appear ready to sacrifice the very same norms and constitutional constraints as the self-described neoliberal technocrats, and for the same reasons." ~ Phillip W. Magness

  • The Iceman Cometh Not

    "During the winter of 1918-1919, not much ice was harvested and stored away. New York City faced an ice famine. The city faced the prospects of riots and the starvation of children, said some. The legislature repealed the act establishing an Ice Comptroller, and the market found an equilibrium given the shortage of natural ice. The next year, things were back to normal." ~ Clifford F. Thies

  • China’s Role in Global Lockdowns: The Smoking Gun

    This time last year, Americans were blindsided by a shocking policy to shut down the US economy to control a virus. The presumption of the officials who enacted this policy is that it would be far more deadly than it turned out to be. They further presumed that the virus could be controlled using state


The @AIER is one of very few research organizations that opposed the lockdowns; lockdowns that (i) proved utterly ineffective at protecting high-risk older people against COVID while (ii) causing enormous collateral public health damage among all ages. Thank you.

If you’re mad about Texas opening up, but you were quiet when Cuomo killed nursing home residents, you don’t actually care about protecting people, you care about protecting your politicians.

Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis was vilified for rejecting harsh lockdowns. But Florida’s Covid-19 numbers are better than California’s or New York’s, and its economy thrives, writes @AllysiaFinley https://t.co/qGcQ3cHqja via @WSJ

@MartinKulldorff @AlastairMcA30 @PeterHotez Thank you for continuing to be a rational, reasonable voice & for promoting #academicfreedom & consideration of #totalharms. Those who accuse you of conflicts or malfeasance only tarnish themselves.

This epidemiologist has been spreading conspiracy theories about AIER and the GBD since October. Now he is falsely claiming he was "threatened" by us. Note the complete absence of evidence. https://t.co/oowxhTVRF7

Pejorative #Neoliberalism: the neoliberal moniker functionally operates as an intentionally imprecise stand-in term...for really any set of political beliefs that happen to be disliked by the person(s) using the term. @aier @PhilWMagness https://t.co/xpmxrOrGpu
