Commentary on Government activism vs populism

Paul Bedard:

Jeremy took a more libertarian view and countered, “There’s a belief out there that government intervention begets more government interventions. That is, the more the federal government intervenes in society and people’s affairs and creates legislation and bureaucracy, it creates other issues. And so do our crises stem from completely random issues or are these crises the result of intervention. And whether we look at coronavirus, whether we look at the economy, I think there’s evidence that points to government meddling in affairs and in places that they shouldn’t. I’m talking about a deadly gain of function research, we’re talking about decades of, well, not decades, but years of Federal Reserve policies that brought interest rates low to nearly zero and blowing up a bubble.”
