‘The Case for Panic’
Matthew Continetti of the Washington Free Beacon says Ebola is worth worrying about, but maybe not for the reasons you think. “Not only do I disagree with the constant stream of soothing and complacent rhetoric from [those] in government and media,” Continetti writes, “I also believe it is entirely rational to fear the possibility of a major Ebola outbreak, of a threat to the president and his family, of jihadists crossing the border, of a large-scale European or Asian war, of nuclear proliferation, of terrorists detonating a weapon of mass destruction. These dangers are real, and pressing, and though the probability of their occurrence is not high, it is amplified by the staggering incompetence and failure and misplaced priorities of the U.S. government. It is not Ebola I am afraid of. It is our government’s ability to deal with Ebola.” Well put.
