  • On the “Tyranny of Freedom”

    "As the world begins to reopen, we should all take careful stock of the freedoms and liberties we have retained and ones we may have lost. Most importantly, however, we should shake off the hooks, lines, and sinkers of the world’s tyrants and enforcement sycophants to begin again with a fresh perspective." ~ Lucio Saverio Eastman

  • 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

  • More Government Debt as Far as the Fiscal Eye Can See

    "What is the ethics, James Buchanan asked, of a fiscal system under which incentives exist and come into play that enable the current generation of taxpayers and recipients of government programs to shift part of the burden to pay for them to future generations? Is that a culturally and economically healthy legacy to leave to our children and grandchildren?" ~ Richard M. Ebeling

  • The Invisible Hand Relies Upon Visible Prices

    "Just as the market order is essential to our survival, prices expressed in money are essential to the market order. Prices are among the visible results of the invisible hand’s successful operation, as well as the single most important source of this success. The market’s invisible hand, in short, alone makes possible – yet equally depends upon – visible market prices." ~ Donald J. Boudreaux

  • Consumer Confidence Remained Strong in July

    “Consumer attitudes remained at favorable levels in July as easing government restrictions continue to boost economic activity and job prospects.” – Robert Hughes

More Government Debt as Far as the Fiscal Eye Can See

“The surest way to work up a crusade in favor of some good cause is to promise people they'll have a chance of maltreating someone. To be able to destroy with good conscience, to be able to behave badly & call your bad behavior 'righteous indignation'”
~ Aldous Huxley

On the upside, I’d always wondered what it’d be like to live in a dystopian future, and I don’t have to speculate anymore

Cases in Thailand are up 696,400% since National Geographic said that they had done an amazing job preventing COVID from “gaining a foothold” due to a commitment to masking & public health

Nothing shows a lack of confidence in your ideas more than pushing for censorship of opposing ones.

Thank you to the GREAT . @jeffreyatucker for so methodically exposing the endless contradictions inside the CDC as expressed through its weird #mask obsession. https://t.co/u0XGk0C1wc

The fact that the science establishment has outlawed the term “natural immunity” and that you need to refer to it by its new phrase… “prior immunity” should tell you everything about the state of our science today.

I'm not anti-vax. I'm opposed to people not being permitted to make their own health choices. I intend to remain unvaxed to stand by this principle & to stand with those who choose not to get the vax for any reason- though it probably would have made my life easier just to get it

"Unless restrictions have a large impact on hospitalisations and deaths that can be clearly observed in the data, the whole basis for lockdown disappears." - @cricketwyvern in @spikedonline https://t.co/D3cpCPykBX
