Today’s highly interesting read (06/15/22): The Loss of Trust Is Well Earned

Today’s read is from Jeffrey Tucker, founder and president of the Brownstone Institute. Here’s an excerpt:

Society is broken at many levels, and the economy, too. We face a mental health crisis among young people following two years of unprecedented educational and social disruption. The highest inflation in most people’s lifetimes has people nearly panicked about the future, and that combines with strange and unpredictable shortages.

And we wonder why. Few dare call it for what it all is: a result of lockdowns and overweening control that has compromised essential rights and liberties. That choice shattered the world as we knew it. We cannot simply move on and forget.

The question I’m constantly asked is: Why did this happen to us? There’s no one easy answer but rather a combination of factors that involved both misunderstandings of cell biology and the social contract but also something more nefarious: the deployment and use of a crisis to further special interests. Let’s try to sort through this.
