The myopic narrow focus view of public policy technocrats on full display. If the goal was to defeat the virus at any price, we have certainly paid every price imaginable. Public policy should be about doing the least harm, on net, to the fewest people, not widespread harm to many based on a plan with no history of success or scientifically valid track-record.

Fauci, who objects to federalism as well as judicial review, embodies the mild-mannered arrogance of technocrats who assume their scientific expertise trumps the rule of law. Because they believe they know what is best for us, they are dismayed by any attempt to limit their influence or restrain their power.
Fauci did vaguely criticize the substance of U.S. District Judge Kathryn Kimball Mizelle’s decision, calling her reasoning “not sound” and “not particularly firm.” But his main point was that she had no business determining whether the CDC had complied with the law, because courts should not be “getting involved in things that are unequivocally public health decisions.”
