Many people think that living in the United States is the same as living in some protective bubble. But more and more, whether it be the Patriot Act or mandatory public school vaccinations or mandatory vaccines for health workers, our natural rights are being confiscated. The degradation of rights is almost always spawned via fear mongering from the highest of levels.
It used to be that getting a vaccine was a personal choice. You could believe that your neighbor, who chose not to get a vaccine, was exposed to an illness. Now, your neighbor is your enemy, thanks to “herd immunity.” Every passing month means the grind between those who want medical freedom and those who want to force medical action becomes more and more hostile.
In Belarus, most people accept vaccinations. But for some in the media, that’s simply not good enough (sound familiar?). And media outlets are now calling to remove vaccine choice and make it illegal for citizens to decline a series of vaccines.
Here’s an excerpt from the Belarus Digest.
On 30 November, the Belarusian Republican Centre for Hygiene, Epidemiology and Public Health announced that 3.7 million Belarusian citizens had voluntary vaccinated themselves against flu. This number proves that Belarusians still generally trust their public health institutions despite a growing anti-vaccination sentiment in the blogosphere and social networks.
At the same time, the Ministry of Health should adequately address anti-vaccination prejudices, which quickly spread via the Internet. A slight decrease in national herd immunity will inevitably lead to outbreaks of dangerous diseases. To do so, the authorities might introduce legal punishments for non-compliance with the national vaccination schedule.
And this, my friends, is exactly how it starts. I suggest you read the entire piece to get a real idea of exactly what the mindset of those who oppose medical freedom is. I can tell you, it isn’t pretty. But this is the sentiment that’s spreading. Those who do not vaccinate are being viewed as they enemy.
