And I clarified. I thought it was obvious going by Austria’s example being at the centre of the discussion.You said prior to the pandemic it wasn't illegal for people to simply exist. I provided you with an example of where it was. That's all my post was getting at.
I do not agree that rejection of the vaccines should make it impossible to live at least a decent life. Otherwise you put pressure on people that amounts to force. Again, too many people treat the vaccines as this ultimate solution, when in fact improper behavior is the biggest culprit in spreading the disease regardless of vaccine status.I'm not in favor of forced vaccinations either. I am, however, in favor of things like termination of employment, unable to enter a venue, and being denied healthcare based on your vaccination status if a company or organization chooses to do so. Despite what you may think, I am pro-choice when it comes to vaccines, but on the same token, I'm also pro-accepting the consequences of your actions.
The strong emphasis on vaccines is partially responsible for misinformation. There’s too much focus on them and too little on other areas that can prevent further spread. For example, it’s hypocritical to promote vaccines but at the same time approve of nightclubs and bars opening their doors to alchohol consumption. Luxuries that make it very hard to take the need for mass vaccinations seriously.Ideally, there wouldn't be anti-vaxxers though, but there are too many ignorant people out there that buy into misinformation to make that a reality. It's almost like schools stopped teaching the scientific method somewhere along the way.
