Quotation of the Day…

… is from a November 1st, 2023, talk given at Hillsdale College’s Washington, DC, campus by Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) (ellipses original to Paul):

Anthony Fauci – who wielded tremendous power over many decades – funded dangerous research, lied to Congress and the American people, flip-flopped on many of his prognostications, issued edicts that defied science, and attacked and smeared his scientific critics. His reprehensible behavior reminded me of nothing so much as C.S. Lewis’s description of the moral busybody: “Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. . . . [T]hose who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience.”
