An analysis of data from around the nation by George Mason University’s Mercatus Center found that vaccine mandates had no effect on reducing either COVID case numbers or deaths.
This follows on the heels of a study by the Cochrane Library that found masking mandates also had no discernible effect on COVID spread. Both of these mandates were ruthless, and now we know pointless, exercises of power that destroyed people’s careers and deeply harmed many children, and the people who pushed them want us to simply let it go and move on, without them even admitting they were wrong. No, it doesn’t work that way.
At least we know we’re finally ALLOWED to talk about this when even the New York Times runs an op-ed titled, “The Mask Mandates Did Nothing. Will Any Lessons Be Learned?”
Considering that it had to be written by Bret Stephens, one of the few token “conservatives” at the Times, and not their editorial board, I’d venture to guess that no lessons will be learned, at least by the New York Times.
