“Sometimes it pays to step back in history to understand exactly how something monumental was created. This is the story of how one data error turned our world upside down and ruined the lives of millions of people. You may find it hard to believe that one big mistake (or lie, more precisely) could have created all the pandemic controls, especially lockdowns, school closings and quarantines, that devastated our lives, our economy and our society. But it happened. I will use two incisive analyses published in 2020 to support my thesis.” (10/08/21)
