“There Is No Proven Effectiveness” – Netherlands Refuses To Mandate Mask Wearing In Public


American public health experts, led by Dr. Anthony Fauci, have struggled over the past couple of months to push a specific narrative on the public: Wearing a mask doesn’t so much protect you from being infected with SARS-CoV-2, but if you are infected, wearing a mask could stop you from passing the virus to someone else. The mainstream media has backed up these assertions with vague references to “science” and “research”, while a coalition of celebrities and progressive activists have tried to tar anybody who doubts this narrative – or, worse, refuses to wear a mask at all times outside their home – as a “denier”. — ZeroHedge

Americans Are Buying Guns In Record Numbers & The Washington Post Isn’t Pleased


… But there’s always been a problem with this attempt at showing causality between guns and homicides: causality can just as plausibly go the other way. That is, in times and places where the local population feels they are in danger of being crime victims, people are more likely to purchase guns for protection. So, rather than saying “guns cause crime,” we should be saying “crime causes guns.” — The Mises Institute

When It Comes to Masks, There Is No “Settled Science”

…Of course, the claim that science has “proven” anything is a red flag for what F.A.
