… is the opening paragraph of Scott Atlas’s excellent essay – “When Will Academia Account for Its Covid Failures?” – in today’s Wall Street Journal:
Many in America’s academic class betrayed the public trust during the pandemic. To sway the American people to accept lockdowns, professors with prestigious titles and affiliations denied scientific data about risks, effective mitigation and biological protection. They spouted politicized opinion as if it were objective truth and demonized views counter to their preferred narrative.
DBx: Pictured here is Scott Atlas who is indeed one of the too-few academics who spoke out courageously and with clarity in support of the great Great Barrington Declaration and, of course, also in opposition to lockdown madness and other covidian tyrannies.
