The vaccine news, especially out of Israel, is startlingly good—especially as regards the transmissibility of the coronavirus. So why, the podcast crew asks, are the elites focusing on the bad, bad, very bad? Is this just a matter of habit, or is there something political going on? And why did Biden even nominate Neera Tanden, who is almost certainly not going to get confirmed as OMB director? And why do liberals think there’s no dignity in work? Give a listen.

    If you make the problem much worse than it has to be, the solution has to be much bigger than it has to be as well.

    Totalitarians need impossibly total solutions.

    Enough of the “sky is falling, Covid will kill you unless you wear 5 masks”. Can John talk about something else other than how great the elites are because they want us to hide in our nbasement.

    “In the Carboniferous Epoch we were promised abundance for all,
    By robbing selected Peter to pay for collective Paul;
    But, though we had plenty of money, there was nothing our money could buy,
    And the Gods of the Copybook Headings said: “If you don’t work you die.”

    Dignity in work? Dignity in child rearing? It’s all nonsense, comrade. There is only dignity in serving the state.
