We don't want to live in a world in which our kids grow up believing that Dr. Fauci and his interventions saved the world, but that's what can happen if a false narrative takes root. Likewise, if people think "deregulation" caused the last financial crisis, that's going to lead people to make dumb decisions in the future.

With the CDC's recent statement about the vaccinated (they can go about their lives as before) the scaffolding of the COVID regime is seriously wobbling. Now big stores feel free to announce that "the vaccinated may enter without masks" and by the way "we won't be asking if you're vaccinated." I also discuss the COVID masks/lockdowns quiz I created to show people that you can't tell the difference between places that went for this stuff hard, and places that didn't.
