    Is It Time To End The Shutdown?

    Is It Time To End The Shutdown?

    Yesterday the Mises Institute published a brilliant article titled "End the Shutdown," making the point that continuing the "house arrest" of Americans and the shutdown of the economy will have much worse consequences than the coronavirus itself. With the infection to fatality ratio at about the rate of the seasonal flu (as per a new Lancet study), is the continued destruction of American economic and social life worth it?

    Mises Institute article:
    Does the Church Belong to Cesar?
    Lancet article:

    Please help keep the Liberty Report on air. Make a tax-deductible donation to the Ron Paul Institute:

    "Beware the Military-Industrial-Financial-Corporate-Internet-Media-Government Complex." - B4L update of General Dwight D. Eisenhower
    "Debt is the drug, Wall St. Banksters are the dealers, and politicians are the addicts." - B4L
    "Totally free immigration? I've never taken that position. I believe in national sovereignty." - Ron Paul

    "... With the infection to fatality ratio at about the rate of the seasonal flu (as per a new Lancet study) ..."

    "Government ... does not exist of necessity, but rather by virtue of a tragic, almost comical combination of klutzy, opportunistic terrorism against sitting ducks whom it pretends to shelter, plus our childish phobia of responsibility, praying to be exempted from the hard reality of life on life's terms." Wolf DeVoon

    In some areas I would think. Leave it up to the State authority. Especially if they have an adequate means of monitoring the contasgion and the resources necessary to handle a surge.
