Anthony Fauci, America's high priest of scientism, wears out his welcome:
On April 13, the editors of National Review opined: “More than a year ago, Americans welcomed [Dr.] Anthony Fauci into their homes as a sober scientist who was helping them make sense of a deadly new virus. But he has worn out that welcome.”
William F. Buckley’s heirs are absolutely right, and here’s why.
Anthony Fauci is no longer viewed as our nation’s sober “scientist” because he’s not one. Instead, he has shown himself to be a political opportunist and our country’s new high priest of “scientism.”
In my new book, “Grow Up! Life Isn’t Safe, but It’s Good,” I offer the following: In the early 1900s, G.K. Chesterton spoke of the unavoidable consequences of worshipping science above the sacred. Observing that the naturalists of his day were only too willing to turn their science into a philosophy and then impose their new religion upon all of culture with near fanatic zeal, Chesterton said, “I never said a word against eminent men of science. What I complain of is a vague, popular philosophy which supposes itself to be scientific when it is really nothing but a sort of new religion and an uncommonly nasty one.”
Recognizing that science could never presume to compete in the moral arena, Chesterton went further.
“To mix science up with philosophy is only to produce a philosophy that has lost all its ideal value and a science that has lost all its practical value. It is for my private physician to tell me whether this or that food will kill me. It is for my private philosopher to tell me whether I ought to be killed.” --->READ MORE HERE
DeSantis spurns CDC advice, says vaccines are effective and 'you’re immune, and so, act immune’:
Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis has challenged the advice of Dr. Anthony Fauci and others in the medical community who are encouraging people to continue social distancing and wearing a mask once they are fully vaccinated.
"My view is if you get a vaccine, the vaccines are effective, you’re immune, and so, act immune," DeSantis told a crowd in Lakeland, Florida.
The Republican governor argued that people have become discouraged from getting the vaccine since doing so will result in no major changes in their daily lives.
"I think the messaging is horrific," DeSantis said. "I think the messaging should be, ‘Get a vaccine because it’s good for you to do it. It works. You’re not going to have to have to be doing anything abnormal. You can live your life.’ That’s got to be what the message is." --->READ MORE HERE
