To vax or not to vax
Why is this sub so very against people’s right to choose whether they want to be vaccinated or not? I am not saying that the right to choose nor that mandates are the correct answer. I just repeatedly see that any comments in favor of an individuals right to choose is almost always downvoted into oblivion which I can see as likely on any other sub. From my understanding though is that libertarianism, promotes individual liberty above all things that do not infringe on the freedom or safety of another. If you are concerned about a virus, get vaccinated. If you are more concerned about the side affects of a vaccine, don’t get vaccinated.
The only argument that I can see as to how choosing to be unvaccinated infringes on another is in the event a virus mutates to be immune to the current vaccine and now those that were vaccinated are now again at risk. The idea that a virus will mutate in this way, however likely that may be is only a possibility. Not a guarantee. Its possible guns can infringe on another’s safety, automobiles, any number of things. This all sounds akin to the idea that we should incarcerate as much of a the population as possible because it will help significantly diminish the possibility anyone’s safety is infringed upon. You are removing liberties because of what could be. Not because of what is. Why does it seem so many people in this sub are so very offended by whether others choose to or choose not to be vaccinated when there is a possibility this choice of others will never affect them at all?
Please, enlighten me.
