  1. And articles/books like THIS are exactly why BU has lost its way .. the university is AWESOME for all the progressive, more government is the solution to everything set (who, perhaps should be called ‘the Kool Aid chuggers’ if we’re going to refer to those not chugging the Kool Aid as ‘science deniers’) .. but it’s then hopelessly LOST to us science deniers who simply ask questions like ‘what should the climate look like at this point?’, or ‘why do masks seem important to our political class only when the cameras are on, and immediately removed when they’re off?’, or ‘why isn’t natural immunity being given any oxygen in the great debate?’, and ‘how does getting vaccinated but then still being required to wear a mask incentivize ANYONE to get vaccinated?’, or ‘how come you would keep a world CLOSED when you’ve got a virus that’s about 99.7% survivable?’ … these are ACTUALLY scientific questions that NOBODY wants to take on, because the answers don’t fit the narrative of ‘a governmental solution for everything’

    Fwiw, I’m a covid surviving, double vaccinated, individual who lost an elderly in-law to the virus, so don’t even bother with the ‘you really don’t understand’ nonsense .. cause I really DO!

    Good luck on the path to nowhere!
