In many cases, governments will position dozens of armored troops …

Governments increasingly linking ID systems with “social credit” systems

Orwell’s famous book 1984 imagined a future world in which government identifies and monitors the behavior and lifestyle of every subject.

Democrats have almost never trusted media more; Republicans have almost never trusted media less

Major media institutions such as the New York Times, ABC, CBS and NBC have pushed a steady stream of pro-government and pro-socialist messaging in recent years. (And numerous investigations have found that these media institutions are often secretly government-funded.) Now a shocking new Gallup poll shows that just 13% of Americans say they trust the …

Michigan government makes it harder for hospitals to offer new cancer treatments

Michigan’s government, like governments elsewhere, requires new clinics and hospitals to get government permission before opening or offering new treatments. The State’s “Certificate of Need” Commission determines if a new startup clinic might bring unfair competition to preexisting, entrenched hospitals. (And people wonder why health care costs are so high!) On Thursday, Michigan’s government commission …
