    Neither is getting vaccinated. These repeated attempts to retreat to hyperbole just makes it look like there aren't any fact based anti-vaxx arguments.

    Please list all of the medical treatments currently in use which are free of potential unknown future consequences.

    Heck, posting on the internet might have potential future unknown consequences. You can't prove that it doesn't. Better stop now before it is too late.

    After some long hard thinking, I think I've figured it out...

    The non vaccinated are battling radical-Vaxxers.

    This all boils down to radicalism vs. radicalism.

    That's certainly one opinion.

    I mean, it ignores a lot of what's actually going on, but it certainly is one way to think about it.

    That's the problem with the world these days... Everyone seems to be a radical of some sort, except for those who aren't... Those who aren’t are actual happy, satisfied people living good lives.

    ...IMO.

    As I said, that's certainly one opinion. It ignores any number of actual facts, but I can't disagree that it is an opinion.

    Right, I am now even seeing people on Pro-Vaccine/Pro-mask FB groups suggesting they should call their neighbors employers and schools, as they are still going to work/sending their kids to school and turning them into the health department and their employers.

    As if that would do any good.

    They are turning into the "Karens" of the pro-Covid/vaccine movement.

    It's radicalism for radicalism.

    The only way out of such circular toxicity is to identify and then abandon the radicalism in your life. The feeling that results is a truly liberating one.

    ...IMO.

    This is a difficult problem. 'Dobbing someone in' goes against the grain down here. I don't like the term 'un-Australian', but it is...un-Australian. But if someone's next door neighbour is having a party with a couple of dozen people when no visitors are allowed, then what is one to do? It could end up spreading covid into more suburbs and lengthening our current lockdown by weeks and inconveniencing tens of thousands. And of course putting their health at risk.

    There was a woman in the supermarket today without a mask. It's compulsory indoors here at the moment. I said 'excuse me...' and was going to tell her she needed one - not that she could have been unaware that it was needed. But she walked past and straight out of the store. If she had remained I would have asked someone from the supermarket to get the security.

    Try getting vaccinated. It helps in preventing radical, draconian measures like chasing women out of the grocery store. o_O

    "Radical-Vaxxers" -- that ranks right up there with "Covid-Taliban."

    I suppose every persecution complex needs a name for their enemy...

    How this, instead? The 2020 lockdowns were terrible. If people getting vaxxed prevents that from happening again, how is that a "radical" idea?

    Persecution complex doesn't apply to me. I'm vaccinated, and was among the first to pull up my sleeve.

    ...But I'm not a radical. I'm normal.

    It's funny. It's almost like people don't believe there are radicals on both the left and right... And in a thousand other directions. The key is in finding balance - a lesson this generation is in desperate need of.

    I've had one jab. Second one in two weeks. Which is pretty much irrelevant. Wearing a mask and using the app to register that you're entering a premise is required by all. That ain't draconian by any stretch. And there were no pitchforks involved. I would have politely requested that she put one on. Or else someone else would be called to ensure she did.

    I'm obeying all the rules as inconvenient as they are. I expect everyone else to do so as well. Hell, my 3 month old grandaughter lives a ten minute drive away and I haven't held her for two weeks. My daughter had her 40th a week ago and all we could do was wish her happy birthday via zoom.

    A ****** mask is not too much to ask...

    Consider the adulterer brought out into the open and stoned. For I believe many would read and take it as negatively as you desire for it to be taken. You should feel proud of yourself.

    Please move along now, if you have nothing to share on the topic at hand.

    I believe this is what caused the recent outbreaks in the U.S. Trying to encourage vaccinations by removing restrictions for those who get vaccinated.

    I think all will need to continue to mask and distance for at least 3 weeks after everyone is vaccinated before easing up on restrictions. Or wait until the cases reduce dramatically on their own.

    A mask is not too much to ask force.

    That's radical, IMO. Expecting "everyone" to get vaccinated.
