An unpaid ad for Brexit and the Bad Orange Man

Powerline on the inconvenient power of freedom of choice to give us stark examples of how some approaches work out better than others. If the Very Smart People had had the power to enforce global standards for the pandemic, we'd have no way of sorting out which policies were most effective. They'd just be telling us their way averted terrible disasters, and its huge costs were completely unavoidable, and there's not going to be any way to alter the progression of the pandemic in the next few months, anyway. Luckily, what we have instead is 50 states who had some freedom to try different things here in the U.S., and dozens of countries (not counting the EU captives) who had the freedom to try different things worldwide.
