Have Governments Been Successful In Controlling The Spread Of Covid-19?

Anthony Rozmajzl, Mises Institute: Almost a Year Later, There’s Still No Evidence Showing Governments Can Control the Spread of Covid-19 

As we approach the one-year anniversary of fifteen days to flatten the curve, we have yet to acquire any data suggesting that the past year of life-destroying lockdowns and politicized behavioral mandates has done anything to keep us safe from covid-19. 

While discussions surrounding the reintroduction of nationwide lockdowns seem to have ceased—it's impossible to ignore the lockdowns' disproportionately deadly effects and the numerous studies demonstrating their futility—the media still retain their grip on the narrative that nonpharmaceutical interventions (NPIs) such as mask mandates, curfews, capacity restrictions, gathering restrictions, and others remain necessary to prevail in our fight against covid-19.

WNU Editor: The pandemic is still raging outside, and thousands still die everyday. Using this metric I will have to say that governments have failed in controlling the spread of Covid-19. But vaccines are offering hope, and we will know more in the coming months if this will be successful in controlling the spread of this deadly disease. Looking at the evidence from places like Israel and its vaccination program, my gut tells me that the answer will be yes.

It might be over
Trump is out of office, which was the main goal
Now we just have to avoid that they do worse than plundering our wealth.

By the way.. talking about people plundering our wealth, corrupt politicians, etc

Doesn't the World feel like Gotham city at the moment? We are ruled by the most corrupt, heartless, evil people... not just a joker or main criminal to fight against in a story... no.. we are talking about hundreds if not thousands of very very wealthy criminals from politics to media and business who destroy our lives and way of life...and there's no Batman. Only hundreds of evil people ruling over us, stealing from us, leading us into wars, lying to us.... and no batman.

Why? Because batman doesn't fear death but lawyers

We are ruled by a class that uses the law against us. The law is corrupted for a long time now. We all feel it. Corrupt politicians who kill thousands through incompetence ONLY get into trouble IF it's politically smart to take them out... even if their own side does it... it's not about law or justice.. these people haven't been touched by justice in a long long time, that's why they do it in the open.. steal your wealth in the open.. enslave you in the open.. take your rights in the open... ignore the constitution in the open

we need a few batmans who don't give a damn, because the law has failed us. The courts failed us. The media lies and distorts everything. There's no more checks and balances. Our wealth is being exported. We have no voice.

We need a group of vigilantes, empowered and protected by the might of the people. And we need to move swiftly before it's too late.

My service: don't use weapons or violence. Instead, make citizen arrests. Prepare the evidence. Think of a media campaign and then arrest them as depuitized citizens on camera. Come in dozens. Come in hundreds. Come in thousands or more.

It must end.
