“Smoking and the Tyranny of Public Health”
-Sullum concludes his essay, “Of all the risk factors for disease and injury, it
seems, freedom is pernicious. And you thought it was smoking.” Sollum
is saying that a life of freedom is not compatible with a life free of risk;
therefore, a free society allows its citizens to take risks and make decisions that are not entirely healthy.
-By analogy, how about the collective official response to covid? What do you think about government-forced closures of public spaces like parks? Do we cherish our safety above our freedoms? Would you rather be
mostly safe or mostly free?
