In his Tom Woods Letter, Tom Woods calls out the intellectual dishonesty of health officials in New York City, suggesting masks despite no evidence that they even help. Woods also calls out the self-censorship prevalent on the Harvard University campus. He writes:
A few items for you today.
(1) Let’s begin with this snowman image from New York.
The image is accompanied by this message:
“Flu, COVID-19 and RSV are all currently spreading in NYC. Wearing a mask in public indoor spaces and crowded places can help protect you and also protect others if you’re sick. High-quality masks, such as N95s, KN95s and KF94s provide the best protection.”
There is no evidence for this. I know you know this already. The Cochrane Review demolished all the masking claims once and for all. But they still want to try to keep it going.
(Not to mention, what exactly would a snowman, who is always in danger of melting, be doing in an indoor space?)
(2) Harvard has been taking a beating in the media these days. Here’s something I just dug up from several days before October 7. A poll reported by the Harvard Crimson, the daily student newspaper, found that “94 percent of surveyed Harvard students said they have self-censored in conversations with their peers before; 88 percent have felt they could not express an opinion because of how others would respond; and 36 percent reported being more likely to self-censor now than when they started at Harvard.”
That sounds like an awesome place to be.
