I think this one is self-explanatory, but let me add this: this episode begins with reference to three academic papers that make preposterous, blue-pilled claims about COVID, and which were funded by a major libertarian organization. Let’s shine a light on this.
“Save the Economy, Liberty, and Yourself: Christian Nationalism and Americans’ Views on Government COVID-19 Restrictions,” by Samuel L Perry, Andrew L Whitehead, and Joshua B. Grubbs
“Prejudice and pandemic in the promised land: how white Christian nationalism shapes Americans’ racist and xenophobic views of COVID-19,” by Samuel L Perry, Andrew L Whitehead, and Joshua B. Grubbs
“The Contagion Externality of a Superspreading Event: The Sturgis Motorcycle Rally and COVID-19,” by Dhaval Dave, Andrew I. Friedson, Drew McNichols, Joseph J. Sabia
