Yaron and Amy: “Stealth Power Grabs of the Coronavirus Era,” TODAY at 2 p.m. ET (11 a.m. PT)

Yes, finally, the Yaron and Amy show returns! Today, after we catch up a little, we’ll talk about several power-grabs, actual or threatened, by various politicians during this time while everyone is (understandably) distracted by the threat of Coronavirus. See Program Notes, below, for all the stories, etc., we plan to discuss.

UPDATE: The show was broadcast live on Yaron’s YouTube Channel; you can catch the replay here:

Video clip: Analogy to explain where we are with respect to our COVID-19 response

I isolated this shorter clip in hopes that some may find it helpful in thinking about why, even though there is a lot that is unknown, and there are definitely risks, it is time to move away from mandatory lockdowns, starting now. 

If you do find it helpful, would you do me a favor and share it? Thanks! Enjoy the rest of your weekend!
