The Thin Façade of Authority

Victor Davis Hanson, American Greatness

Our modelers constantly downsize their bleak prognostications as “data changes”. Elite wisdom, which in its allegiance to the scientific method eventually is likely to find an antidote and vaccination against the virus, still fails us in so many other ways in which it should not, in part also because its high priests rarely face the consequences of their own ideological and scientific pronouncements. Whatever the end result, few at the WHO, CDC or the state health directors are going to lose their jobs in a way the small restaurateurs and Uber drivers most certainly will. Elites who make policy do not necessarily immediately need to plug back into a normal economy to survive.
