  1. On the socio-economic level, here is some more garlic, mirrors, crosses and wooden stakes for the Coronavirus vampires in the castles. The villagers are starting to win. Michael EDIT: The tweet embedded in the tweet has now been deleted. And Disclose.TV on Telegraph doesn't have a copy, so it was probably deleted for some reason by Disclose.TV itself. At any rate, this is what the tweet was about: Southwest Airlines scraps plans to put unvaccinated employees on unpaid leave WWW.FOXBUSINESS.COM Earlier this month, Southwest became the latest airline to require its employees to get inoculated by Dec. 8, although it still gave employees the option to apply for medical or religious exemptions. Now let's hope that Fox Business doesn't delete this.

  2. Peter, That - "I am not for mandates" - takes priority for me. In return, I am for vaccinations. A false dichotomy you're aware of. We may argue "the science", but that's a separate matter. As I've constantly said, vaccines are still better than nothing, at very least a fairly safe port in the storm, for us and all ageing (etc.) individuals. They apparently have enough efficacy for anyone who knows they need vaccinating or simply want it. In my case and having a pretty good metabolism and resistance to diseases - I've not had flu for as long as I can recall - and I'm sure I'd cope with Covid (if I've not already asymptomatically caught it) but growing older and undoubtedly, gradually getting immuno-compromised, my choice would have been to wait a year or so. This bug will be around for a while. That I won't be allowed a choice and freedom to decide, as with the healthful many who would do fine without vaxxing, is abhorrent. Covid and all the un-needed measures that were forced along with it, have lost us freedom.

  3. Our new episode is an interview with Richard Ebeling, the BB&T Distinguished Professor of Ethics and Free Enterprise Leadership at The Citadel military college. We discuss how he was introduced to Objectivism, his role in discovering the lost works of Ludwig von Mises, and his new article on Marxo-Nazism. Check it out!

  4. Looks most helpful. From a glimpse: The "elephant in the room", natural herd immunity, has indeed been ignored if not scorned (From the start). This makes one wonder if a country's health is *actually* what matters most. Or is it more, grabbing power, when the whole world is morally (etc.) uncertain, afraid and fragile? (Rhetorical). Not an article by an ARI O'ist, shamefully. The ARI bunch have still not, that I'm aware, come out unequivocally against Vaxx blackmail, and YB hasn't admitted his blunder implicitly nor explicitly. Instead has been doubling down, covering his tracks, from what I've heard. About ready for another pertinent ARIWatch column...?

  5. More to the point "mandate" is now a euphemism for mandate. It's mandate de facto not de jure, large swaths of the 'public' fail to make the proper distinction and fall to the proverbial lemmings' fate. Along with power lust it seems to be a feature of human nature both of which John Galt wanted to reduce to a bug.

  6. "Mandate" is now euphemistic and synonymous with career-ending, social pressure, psychological intimidation, Govt. coercion. I think I'll stop using the word. This is vaxx blackmail.

  7. Even if Dr. Mercola is a bit of a huckster (I'm not saying he is, and I don't think he's a quack) he's certainly doing good work these days. See his Businesses: $700,000 Fine for Not Complying With Vax Mandate (The link is to a reprint because the original is up only temporarily.) Recall that the folks at the so-called Ayn Rand Institute supported Biden over Trump, saying Trump was "authoritarian." They are either flaming idiots or making fools out of their supporters.

  8. Are you trying to reassure Peter that he's safe from getting Covid because he's been "vaccinated"? He isn’t. The pseudo-vaccines don’t protect people from getting, or from dying from, Covid - as Marc accurately indicated in his full question, which you truncated. Ellen

  10. Our new episode is an interview with Gennady Stolyarov II, a longtime fan of Rand who is now the chairman of the Transhumanist Party, a political group that supports policies favoring life extension research and technology, with the goal of eliminating the problems of aging and death so people can live healthy, immortal lives.
