The Flat-Curve Society

Two absolute CLASSICS by Jack Kerwick from early April, 2020.

Coronavirus Hysteria: The Flat-Curve Society – April 8, 2020

But in truth, the Flat-Curvers among the masses are no laughing matter.  They are as scary, really, perhaps scarier, than their Leaders.  The Flat-Curvers in Big Government and Big Media know that they are advancing a fiction designed to advance their own economic and political interests.

The Flat-Curvers throughout the country, though, those who are increasingly wearing masks; raiding grocery stores; hoarding goods; and shaming, blaming, and attacking those who they deem insufficiently observant of Social Distancing protocol—they are True Believers.

Yet they’re frightening because, as I noted above, the incalculable damage to the material, mental, emotional, and, yes, spiritual well-being of scores of millions of their fellow Americans, to say nothing of untold numbers of other human beings around the world who will inescapably be injured by this shutdown of America, couldn’t have happened without the zeal with which they’ve fallen into lockstep and followed their Leaders in Big Government and Big Media.

Coronavirus Hysteria: The Flat-Curve Society and “the Curious, but Quite Authentic, Inability to Think” – April 9, 2020

However monstrous the deeds were, the doer was neither monstrous nor demonic, and the only specific characteristic one could detect in his past as well as in his behavior during the trial and the preceding police examination was something entirely negative: it was not stupidity but a curious, quite authentic inability to think.” 

About Food for the Thinkers

My name is Doug Newman. I live in Aurora, Colorado, just outside Denver. Food for the Thinkers is mostly about the connection between Christianity and libertarianism. Most Christians do not understand libertarianism. And most libertarians do not understand Christianity. Hopefully, this blog helps clear up those misunderstanding. Check out my old page at www.thefot.us And remember: When you let people do whatever they want, you get Woodstock. But when you let governments do whatever they want, you get Auschwitz.
