    Indeed. This is a very clear distillation:

    Progressivism’s foundational proposition—that the American way of life suffers from excessive freedom and insufficient latitude for experts to lead each into doing what is best for all—is the intellectual basis of the oligarchy’s ever-increasing size, wealth, and power. The theme that the USA was ill-conceived in 1776-89 and must be re-conceived has resounded from Woodrow Wilson’s Congressional Government (1885) to the campaigns of Franklin Roosevelt, John Kennedy, Barack Obama, and Joseph Biden: “listen to the scientists!” The criticism’s main point has been constant: America’s original conception validated the people’s right to live as they please, and made it hard to marshal them for Progressive purposes.

    But the Progressive critique adds a moral basis: the American people’s indulgence of their preferences—private ease and comfort, focus on families, religious observance, patriotism—has made for every secular sin imaginable: racism, sexism, greed, etc. Because most Americans are racist, sexist, un-appreciative of real virtue or refinement (these are somehow rolled together), because these Americans resist knuckling under to their betters, America is a sick society that needs to be punished and to have its noxious freedoms reformed.

    Actually I saw somewhere that he inherited the horse from an uncle. So that's probably why he felt so carefree about riding it to death, he didn't put any money into purchasing it or any time into raising and training it. Feel bad for the horse, but on the upside this does make a bit of a fool out of Lightfoot. Especially when you hear them interview the guy afterward, he sounded like he was high and kept trying to get the attention of famous rappers.

    A doctor unable to conceptualize PPV = TP/(TP + FP) is like a strength coach unable to conceptualize Power = Force*Distance/Time. Prevalent, and unacceptable.

    I'm curious if anyone will perform a complete post-mortem on this debacle. It would be especially interesting to know:
    • Total deaths in the US, Jan-Sep 2020 versus the same period, previous year
    • Split by age group
    • Split by type of death
    • Increase in [and causes of] non-COVID related deaths and whether or not that number is equal to, less than, or greater than total COVID deaths
    • The above stats calculated in terms of "life years lost" (I wonder how many life years have been lost due to things like suicide among young people, which represent 40+ life years lost per person, as compared to life years lost due to COVID deaths from the elderly)

    It'd be hard to get accurate ranges, but it'd be worth attempting to calculate:
    • Total economic cost
    • Cost per incremental death (over last year's baseline)
    • Cost per incremental life year lost (over last year's baseline)
    • A simulation, based on actuals from other countries, to imagine what these stats may have been if there were no lockdowns, social distancing, mask mandates, etc in the US

    It would also be interesting to know:
    • Total and percentage of deaths caused by government intervention (especially early moves that placed COVID patients in end of life care facilities, for example)
    • Psychological impact on the country as measured by Rx drug use, illegal drug use, alcohol/cannabis use increases, and a sentiment analysis (hopelessness/optimism, feeling of being in control of one's own destiny, etc)
    • Total dollars spent by businesses and government on policy implementation (including social distancing, signage, PPE, human resources, equipment, etc)
    • Number and percentage of small businesses that filed for bankruptcy, year over year
    • Average economic injury to government employee vs public company employee vs private company employee vs small business owner
    • Crime stats comparison, year over year
    • Trust in media and government stats, year over year

    It is impossible to quantify the true costs of these policy decisions, since they have permanently altered the course of history. A functioning media would be useful in a situation like this.

    Holy shit. I never know with Veritas where itís going to fall. Sometimes itís over hyped, however, this is significant.
