38. A Sorry Time for Humanity: How Lockdowns Are Digging Our Graves

April 8, 2020

April 8, 2020: As government-mandated lockdowns of "nonessential" workers enter their umpteenth day, Glenn Campbell explains why they are such a bad idea. Lockdowns are blind and indiscriminate, and their economic damage is irreparable. The cure for COVID-19 is strategically addressing the major vectors that convey the disease, like shaking hands and touching door handles. Lockdowns, however, are trying to eliminate every possible risk, no matter how unlikely, and it will be politically difficult to roll them back. That's not to say they won't be effective. Glenn predicts that the epidemic will peak soon, as most vectors of transmission are addressed. The issue, then, will be the long-term economic damage of the lockdowns themselves. This is a case where the cure may be far worse than the disease. — Website: — Instagram & Twitter: @DemographicDoom — See the video version of this episode for notes, comments & corrections: [ep 38, 8 April 2020]
