One thought on “FAR Outside Medical Norms: Until You Can Prove Safety, You CANNOT Justify Vaccine Mandates”
Getting a chance to catch up on these posts – I fear that the title is a bit misleading because it assumes the traditional American view of ethics (“do no harm” [to an individual]) – although the military draft defies that. (& I believe the Supreme Court decision saying that the draft was not subject to the thirteenth amendment was in errors as amendments should supersede whatever comes before them.) Unfortunately, the US has been infested with people who sincerely believe in pure utilitarian ethics through the communists’ “long march through the institutions” for decades. To get to the root of the “health” mandate problems, we have to re-educate the US population about the harms and irrationality of utilitarian ethics.
