Thanks to a Ricochet friend for bringing this excellent quote to my attention. It belongs in a prominent position, since it perfectly expresses the horror of the “Covid-19 Lockdown” mentality that has taken over the brains of so many state governors/mini-dictators. From Dr. John Rao:
Our Socratic forbears taught us through their “Seeds of the Logos” that the reasoning man does not have to be an expert in a given field to be able to make a competent judgment regarding whether he is dealing with leaders whose advice he should heed or reject as fraudulent. Frauds demand absolute faith in their claims, treating the confused doubter with contempt for his invincible ignorance. Such imposters may seriously believe that they are omniscient experts. But when they tell young or otherwise healthy persons that they are in the same condition as the weakest of the elderly or the already ill; when they say that in order to protect itself the vast mass of the population has to abandon its livelihood, the well being of its country, the cultural life of its civilization, and the tools required for its eternal salvation they must be dismissed for what they actually are: quacks.
Does this sound like anyone you know? It sure sounds like our Dictator in Olympia. Quack!!!
DEFY TYRANNY. BREAK THE LOCKDOWN.
