Dr. Anthony Fauci is unquestionably an expert on infectious diseases, serving as the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases since 1984. He has presided over emerging viruses such as H.I.V., SARS, Swine Flu, MERS, Ebola and others. In every case, the rhetoric that emerged sought to force social and political behavior by suggesting a pandemic and prescribing radical action to combat the threat. Where those other efforts failed to gain traction, the coronavirus COVID-19 has succeeded.
Dr. Fauci has now revealed his true Technocrat colors by stepping beyond his role of merely informing policy-makers to making policy directly. This door was opened when President Trump granted him a policy platform and authority to speak for the Federal government. Big mistake.
Since then, whatever disaster that COVID-19 might bring in medical terms, it has been far surpassed by social, economic and political carnage that can only be described by one term: NATIONAL SUICIDE.
Dr. Fauci might be absolutely correct that COVID-19 is 10 times ‘more lethal’ than the seasonal flu, but since his conclusions and predictions are only verifiable by himself, science has essentially become a god and he has become its sole high-priest.
In any case, his scientific and medical expertise in no way qualifies him as an expert in sociology, economics or political science. Yet, he is driving the shutdown of the entire nation to “prevent COVID-19 from spreading.”
Fear Mongering Wins Again
First, alarmist “sky-is-falling” cries were made that millions of Americans could die. Second, the only way to prevent these deaths is to stop contagion by shutting down social and economic activities. Fauci has since claimed that he is open to a 14 day total national shutdown.
That is, shut down sports and community events, schools, churches, restaurants, transportation, factories, services and any other activity where people would come into contact with each other. This insane mentality has now caused national panic among civic leaders as well as citizens.
Ordinary people are panicked into the irrational hoarding of toilet paper. Really? State governors are firing off executive orders left and right that are essentially promoting a form of “soft martial law” where civic and religious groups above a certain people limit cannot meet. City mayors are shutting down restaurants, churches, schools and government services.
These irrational measures are ripping apart the social and economic fabric of the entire nation. Store shelves are emptied, the stock market is crashing, national economic activity has cratered, all in the name of saving us from the coronavirus.
This is the exact reason why America should NEVER allow Technocrats to run the nation. And yet, Technocrats ARE running the nation anyway… straight into the ground.
When America regains its senses, it will be too late to mitigate the damage. For now, Technocrats like Dr. Fauci should go back to their laboratories to do something useful for mankind and stay out of the business of running the nation.
