Data and marketing consultant and statistical sage to presidential candidates, governors, businesses, and the real powers-that-be, epidemiologists, Justin Hart catalogs in a terrifying-but-sprightly manner the folly and psychosis produced by the pandemic and diagnoses the societal destruction that the massive overresponse to the COVID virus has wreaked, as well as what can be done to stop the madness and bring the world back to a modicum of rationality. WORST. DISEASE. EVER. Someone broke America. In this nightmare, neighbors have turned into agoraphobes, teachers fear their students, children are muzzled, citizens are censored, dystopian fictions have become reality, and unelected officials are creating a biometric police state. Oh wait. It’s not a nightmare. It’s our daily lives! In truth, much of this insanity didn’t start with the coronavirus pandemic (it was already latent in big government and big corporations) and it won’t end there. COVID-19’s greatest threat turned out to be … mental. All we had to fear was fear itself—and boy did some of us fear! The very idea of the virus weakened the immune system of America and revealed a decaying underbelly of confusion, panic, unease, and cowardice few of the strong ones suspected existed. What a horrible wake-up call! In a spate of anxious dread and gleeful power-grabbing, our health overlords threw away the pandemic response handbook and tried—beyond all reason—to protect, well, everyone. From massive over-testing to universal retail plexiglass to stay-at-home orders to stay-away-from-school orders to masking mandates to vaccine mandates to some of the worst restrictions on civil liberties in American history, this is an epic story that poses big questions about America’s future as a free society. And the odd thing is, as Justin Hart shows, the actual disease was, as pandemics go, not that threatening; most people were at minimal risk. What is really scary is the total overreaction of half the country, many governments, that lost all sense of perspective. Hart offers a hopeful prescription on how we might face the madness down and claw our way back to sanity!

Summary

Data and marketing consultant and statistical sage to presidential candidates, governors, businesses, and the real powers-that-be, epidemiologists, Justin Hart catalogs in a terrifying-but-sprightly manner the folly and psychosis produced by the pandemic and diagnoses the societal destruction that the massive overresponse to the COVID virus has wreaked, as well as what can be done to stop the madness and bring the world back to a modicum of rationality.

WORST. DISEASE. EVER.

Someone broke America. In this nightmare, neighbors have turned into agoraphobes, teachers fear their students, children are muzzled, citizens are censored, dystopian fictions have become reality, and unelected officials are creating a biometric police state. Oh wait. It’s not a nightmare. It’s our daily lives!

In truth, much of this insanity didn’t start with the coronavirus pandemic (it was already latent in big government and big corporations) and it won’t end there. COVID-19’s greatest threat turned out to be … mental. All we had to fear was fear itself—and boy did some of us fear! The very idea of the virus weakened the immune system of America and revealed a decaying underbelly of confusion, panic, unease, and cowardice few of the strong ones suspected existed. What a horrible wake-up call!

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Justin Hart lays out the truth about COVID and exposes the national response to the pandemic as a failure of logic and science.” Dr. Scott W. Atlas, Robert Wesson Senior Fellow in Health Policy, Hoover Institution, Stanford University, and former advisor to the president, August to November 2020
“Justin Hart is the great chronicler of folly, observer of absurdity, and debunker of tall tales. The pandemic response was a template made for all his best talents. A gloriously satisfying read.” Jeffrey Tucker, founder of the Brownstone Institute
“Justin Hart lays out the truth about COVID and exposes the national response to the pandemic as a failure of logic and science. While the expert class cowered, many individual Americans worked hard for the truth—including Justin. The disgraceful pandemic management will live in infamy as the most harmful public health debacle in American history. The ignorance and incompetence of those in charge is now surpassed only by their moral bankruptcy in blaming everyone but themselves for their catastrophic errors.” Dr. Scott W. Atlas, Robert Wesson Senior Fellow in Health Policy, Hoover Institution, Stanford University, and former advisor to the president, August to November 2020
“From the beginning of the pandemic era, governments and public health officials worldwide have imposed lockdowns and restrictions in a futile and destructive bid to suppress the spread of a highly infectious virus. Justin Hart and Rational Ground—the ragtag group of data mavens and advocates for sanity he formed—stood up against public health tyranny and helped hasten the end of disastrous COVID policies.” Jay Bhattacharya, professor of medicine at Stanford University and director of Stanford’s Center on the Demography and Economics of Health and Aging
“Justin Hart’s Gone Viral reveals how ‘two weeks’ to flatten the curve morphed into an effort to permanently flatten your freedom. Find out how viral fears are used, not to control a virus, but to control you. Hart’s book is your guide to keeping George Orwell’s 1984 merely a work of fiction.” Marc Morano, author of The Great Reset and publisher of Climate Depot
