How Might Milton Friedman Respond To The COVID-19 Pandemic? (Part 2)

Continued from Part 1 In this age of tribalism, where everybody must be apportioned to a particular tribe with a specific agenda, I am well aware that I will already have been painted as a socialist and\or anti-capitalist.

How Might Milton Friedman Respond To The COVID-19 Pandemic? (Part 1)

I have written extensively detailing my views on why conservatives are hell-bent on minimising introductions of stringent measures to retard the COVID-19 pandemic in their jurisdictions which would reduce preventable deaths. It boils down to their political power base being the business class elite, and their greatest fear is that The Great Reset will leadContinue reading “How Might Milton Friedman Respond To The COVID-19 Pandemic?

COVID-19 Risks With Animals

Now that Prime Minister Morrison has clarified that the aim of Australia’s aggressive suppression strategy is zero community transmission, we need to begin to reposition to be more proactive rather than reactive towards COVID-19. Australia has long been a world leader in biosecurity policy and implementation, and together with our natural advantages from being aContinue reading “COVID-19 Risks With Animals”
