    I found this opinion piece interesting. I wonder if anything will come from it.

    That piece is a litany of assertions without presented evidence; itís polemical and nothing more. Nothing will come of it.

    I was going to post something about how it would've been nice if he would've offered any kind of evidence about what was wrong instead of just saying "we believed Fauci when he was wrong" (why and when was he wrong?). He kind of did do that, in some of the links at the top of the article, but you said it better than I would've.

    So much projection in that opinion piece.

    Interesting in the same way that a car crash is interesting, sure. Dude doesn't cite anything in this rambling jeremiad to back up his central point.

    I'm sure mistakes were made. This was a very different thing than we had ever been through before. Experience is a great teacher and we had none or very little. But to write a piece like that is pretty irresponsible.

    Science is the process of trying to figure out things we don't yet understand, constantly learning, adding that to our knowledgebase and always improving society by simply knowing more than before.

    Opinion and politics have nothing to do with truth or bettering society. It's all in aid of the selfish desires of an individual or a group.

    No doubt. And their all opinions and irresponsible. It will take years to accurately evaluate COVID response and have a solid lessons learned picture.

    Interesting in that it seems like the media is setting up a narrative where it can slowly bleed the uncomfortable facts of the what happened during the pandemic to the public. Then the public can accept that mistakes were made and the media can drive traffic to their site through sustained clicks over time.

    Maybe as you think nothing will come out of his central point, or maybe something will come of it. Only time will tell. It will be interesting to see what happens going forward.

    Seems like we kind of already know what was right and wrong.

    Widespread shutdowns of businesses and schools, bad. Decision making by a small group of bureaucrats, bad. Certain segments of population freaking out about relatively benign things like masking, bad. US intel not having more info out of China, bad. Doling out of easy government money that much of it went to waste, bad.

    Vaccines, good, especially early on. This might be the one thing time will tell but the harm of them is overblown imo. The speed and quality of western pharmaceutical companies, good. A good chunk of the population buying in to helping each other out, good.
