    Thought this was relevant given all the fear-mongering about mandatory vaccinations and the world turning into 1930s Nazi Germany (a comparison I've seen numerous folks making here).

    Turns out the idea of mandatory vaccinations goes back over a century.

    From the very start of the organized vaccination campaign against smallpox, there was public resistance, says Willrich. The battle between the government and the vocal anti-vaccinators came to a head in a landmark 1902 Supreme Court decision, where the Supreme Court upheld the right of a state to order a vaccination for its population during an epidemic to protect the people from a devastating disease.

    First the pox blanket statement that mankind is capable of autrocities and then the command to submit to injecting the virus mainstream becomes reason to continue the practice? y k.

    Comments like this makes [your version of] Christianity sound like a death cult.

    We eliminated smallpox because enough people took the vaccine. We'll never eliminated COVID at this rate because enough people are being stubborn about not taking it.

    Hopefully, the virus takes the stubborn people before the rest of us.

    Apparently it only makes them dumber and turns them into long-covid wrecks.

    If we were being confronted with something that even resembled smallpox (think chickenpox), ... we wouldn't even be having these discussions at this point ...
