Is 'Panic for Profit' One of the Greatest Crimes in History?

One year ago, we struggled with the question how to best deal with the COVID-19 pandemic.

The choice was between adopting Dr. Anthony Fauci's 'flattening the curve' strategy or following Dr. Knut Wittkowski's medical advice and recommendation to 'Get the old and frail people out of the way, get the kids in school, run your businesses and carry on with life as usual and in 4-6 weeks the virus will have run its course and been eliminated by the only the thing that kills such viruses: herd immunity.'
