Subject: RE: BS: New news on the pandemic COVID-19
So Eliza, you're in favour of pinning every refuser down so that they can be forcefully injected. I'm afraid I'm not with you.

I've responded to your rather silly and over-the-top similar post on the other thread, Donuel. Let's just say here that thank goodness I don't know any anti-maskers. I know a couple of anti-vaxxers round here who are weird in at least several other ways as well. They are impenetrable. Vaccine refuseniks are often just vaccine-unsure, vaccine-hesitant or vaccine-scared, or the victims of rumours and scare-stories. Those are the people we need to work on via education, reassurance and persuasion. Sticking needles into them while they kick and scream is simply not permissible. The state does not own people and we must preserve democracy. Those of you who support Facebook via your membership should consider that huge numbers of the refuseniks you are excoriating are refuseniks because of the sheer irresponsibility of the organisation which couldn't exist without you. Perhaps you could reflect on that before offering condemnatory opinions about people who just might be harbouring reasonable points of view that don't happen to concur with yours.
