In this week’s episode, I am proud to be joined by Ace Archist. Ace gained his liberty street cred by tirelessly bashing Twitter NPCs over the head with libertarian philosophy and logic. I just had to recruit his help in dismantling the most common pro-lockdown argument that we’re waging war against.

One thought on “This FALLACY Justified Lockdowns Across the World Ft. Ace_Archist Ep. 185”
  1. These are things occur on private property, so we’re really talking about how people use their property. I cannot find that absent property rights, we can possibly be talking about some universal right to force someone into quarantine (within context of Block’s paper).
    In Block’s paper he is not differentiating between some sort of universal right or the right of a property owner. He concludes that the positions related to COVID are unresolved, but for it to be unresolved it must be the case that under libertarian theory there exists some universal right to imprison someone who qualifies, completely outside of private property rights. Through inference this means that libertarian theory includes positions in which someone can universally be locked up based upon a hypothetical threat defined by scientists, another aspect people leave out – these are claims from human beings in the occupation of scientist, so based on the testimony of a human being other human beings can be locked up. This is the actual situation – the elevation of scientists to become the ultimate arbiters human freedom in libertarianism. Or Block is wrong, which also means the publisher of the journal is wrong since they are to a certain extent endorsing his opinion (the purpose of “peer review”).
    The Jacobson case decided someone could be compelled to pay a fine. I find issue with the future rulings because they were using Jacobson as an excuse to force a medical procedure, not pay a fine. I don’t know if I just have serious reading comprehension issues.
