Sen. Paul Hits Fauci for Government Planners’ ‘Fatal Conceit’ They Can Outsmart Individuals

‘It is a fatal conceit to believe any one person or small group of people has the knowledge necessary to direct an economy or dictate public health behavior’
By Grabien Staff


PAUL: “Ultimately this all comes down to the fatal conceit. That central planners have enough knowledge somehow to tell a nation of 330 million people what they can and can’t do. Perhaps our planners might think twice before they weigh in on every subject. Perhaps our government experts might hold their tongue before expressing the opinion whether we can play NFL football or Major League Baseball, not in October. Perhaps our experts might think twice before telling the whole world that a COVID vaccine likely won't provide herd immunity. We don’t know. Why weigh in with these opinions that we have no knowledge of? These are forecasts that may well be wrong. Perhaps our experts might consider the undue fear they’re instilling in teachers who are now afraid go back to work. No one knows the answers to these questions. We shouldn’t presume that a group of experts somehow knows what’s best for everyone.”
