News Flash: Death Is Inevitable!

Near the two-minute, twenty-second mark of this brief interview with British MP Charles Walker – who has been absolutely heroic in fighting Covid Derangement Syndrome – the interviewer, a British news person, apparently discovers for the first time that some people, such as Mr Walker, understand that death is inevitable.

In response to a perfectly reasonable point made by Walker, the interviewer asks Walker, “So are you saying that we need to learn to live with a certain amount of death?”

Seriously, has humanity gone deranged? This interviewer – along with all who suffer the debilitating disease Covid Derangement Syndrome – treats Covid as if it is visiting upon humanity a fate that differs categorically from any that we’ve ever before confronted.

(I thank my Mercatus Center colleague Jack Salmon for sending to me the link to this interview.)
