Jon Miltimore On Socialism And Cuomo’s Nursing Home Policy

FEE managing editor Jon Miltimore joins David Gornoski to discuss Andrew Cuomo’s disastrous nursing home policy and its failure in protecting the elderly from the COVID-19 virus. The conversation starts with the search for a grand narrative and then moves to the question of socialism and the false assumption that Jesus was a socialist. The two also tackle a much deeper topic of rights, free will, and its relationship to virtue, which our society often ignores and due to which ideologies such as Marxism emerge.

Unholy Profits

What if Galileo had been asked to spend millions to prove his claim? Host David Gornoski explains how the government’s patenting practices have proved to be an enormous and sinful hurdle in fighting the COVID-19 virus. “But free markets hurt families,” say the naysayers. David Gornoski disagrees. “I see a society that has mutated from solidarity with one another into defacto attempts to rule over the other.” If we courageously extend God’s respect for free will to our neighbor, all things will fall in place. Listen to the whole episode as David provides an epic anthropological and spiritual argument for free-market choices.

Reject the False Gods in DC

In this mega Monday edition of the show, host David Gornoski contemplates and illustrates, with real-life examples, on how we can break away from groupthink and gain the courage to innovate and come up with radical solutions that would enable us to help and protect our neighbors.

Can we rely on ‘the right’ political candidates to fix things for us? Can we rely on dishonest mainstream media and corrupt political establishments? No, we can’t. It’s up to us to get things done! David Gornoski explains how we can have much better alternatives by looking outside broken institutions, crowdsourcing the right ideas, and finding citizen journalists that tell the truth rather than out of touch agendas.

Also, in the interview with Dr. Michael Lisanti, we learned how generic antibiotics can destroy senescent cells which act as host receptors for COVID-19. David Gornoski expands on Dr. Lisanti’s findings and its surprising implications on the world of medicine and virology.
