On this day in 1993, at 12 pm, a group of fanatical Muslim fundamentalists detonated a van filled with 4,000 pounds of explosives in an underground parking garage beneath the north tower of the World Trade Center, killing six people and injuring more than a thousand, while failing to structurally damage the towers. Six conspirators were convicted of the crime and given prison sentences of 240 years apiece.

PLY: I am reminded of newsletter guru Harry Schultz’s magnificent rejoinder “I may be paranoid but that doesn’t mean they’re not out to get me” which appears to reflect feeling amongst those inhabiting the muskaverse (a somewhat virtual space which can often leave inhabitants with an ego that stretches to Mars).

PLY: Up from 80%.
“Do not allow lab-based scientists to rip up established hierarchies of evidence in advising on policy interventions — or, worse, to be indifferent to the need to evaluate social and economic interventions. We need real-world evidence of effectiveness, not expert beliefs in things like face masks or ventilation.
Do not rely on the blunt instruments of law and fear to bring the population along for a long haul. These will always produce conflict and injustice, weakening trust in government and public health institutions.
Do not undermine parliamentary accountability or pretend that responsible oppositions do not ask hard questions about the evidence and logic behind policies. The UK has already drifted too close to an elective dictatorship. This should be a moment to strengthen the review of government actions.
Do not treat modellers as oracles forecasting the future. Modelling is really important in its place, which is answering what-if questions from policy-makers, not driving policy.
More fundamentally, the modern world has developed unrealistic expectations of control over nature. In other areas of life, we tolerate risks to a certain level and accept that they cannot be wholly eradicated. Our forebears understood that death was unavoidable but we seem to aspire to immortality.”
“We have developed unrealistic expectations of control over nature, and seem to have lost our sense of risk.”
As always, a review of interesting reading to provoke thoughts and consideration…
