You’ve been drafted by the Spirit of the Age to fight Covid. Like draft resisters in other wars in other ages, you will face “consequences”, if you don’t report when ordered to your local induction center … or something.

Read this letter to Pravda on the Potomac:

Regarding Monica Gandhi’s Sept. 26 Outlook essay, “We’ll have to live with covid forever. But the pandemic will end.”:

The public health, medical and political communities are failing us. The SARS-CoV-2 virus is waging a savage war against mankind. The number of deaths in the United States now amount to 700,000, which is more than the military lost in both world wars, Korea and Vietnam combined. This does not include the casualties of those who will suffer the long-term effects of the disease.

Like it or not, we have all been drafted into this war. The only weapons we have are social distancing, masking and, thankfully, the vaccines. We have a duty to take up those arms to defend ourselves and each other. Those of us who choose not to fight are guilty of desertion. Those who are not true to this cause, who deny their duty to fight and encourage others to do the same are giving aid and comfort to our enemy — which is an act of treason. This war cannot be won by allowing so many of us to commit these transgressions without consequence.

Leo Fishel, Chevy Chase


Thank you, Becky Akers, for letting me know about this madness.

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 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.
