For Nearly a Century, Foolish Experts Don't Ask 'What is the Price?" We Need to Ask "What is the Price!" or We Are Doomed!

Dennis Prager on

What would you think of a person who never asked the price of anything he or she bought?

You would assume the person was inordinately wealthy. But if the person wasn't, you would dismiss him as a fool, and you would certainly never ask this person for advice about how to spend your money.

Yet, for two years, that question -- "What is the price?" -- was avoided by virtually every political leader in the world as well as the vast majority of epidemiologists and physicians, journalists and editors, college presidents, deans, professors and K-12 teachers.

They never asked, "What is the price?" with regard to locking down businesses, schools and, in many cases, entire countries.

That is why so many political leaders, teachers, college presidents, doctors, epidemiologists and other scientists turned out to be fools.

The handful of scientists -- and, of course, the even smaller number of academics or people in the mainstream media -- who questioned the lockdowns were labeled purveyors of "misinformation" and "disinformation," the terms used by the Left to describe all dissent. Indeed, as of January 2023, California physicians who differ from the fools who dominate the American medical establishment will risk having their license to practice medicine revoked.

 

The only country in which leading epidemiologists and political leaders asked what price their country, especially their young people, would pay under a lockdown was Sweden. Otherwise, virtually no leaders -- in science, media, academia or politics -- asked the most important question: What is the price?

As a result, economies were devastated, millions of people who owned small businesses had their financial lives ruined, and young people suffered on every level. Fools, led by universities -- Harvard shut down in early March 2020, when there were 51 confirmed cases COVID-19 in the entire state of Massachusetts -- and followed by virtually every teachers union, ruined countless young Americans' lives. For nearly two years, young Americans were deprived of an education, deprived of interaction with peers, and masked everywhere they went outside of their homes. One result is that young Americans now have the highest rate of mental and psychological problems recorded in the country's history, have the highest rates of depression and suicide and are academically at the lowest level for their age ever recorded.

This happened because teachers unions are led by fools and because virtually every public health authority is a fool. And because the overwhelming majority of American parents put their faith in fools -- and thereby injured their own children.

Fools led sheep. Parents were sheep; airline heads who went along with the abusive policy of forcing 2-year-olds to wear masks for hours on end were sheep; even the vast majority of priests, ministers, and rabbis were sheep.
