Firstly as we move on, can I just say that camDown is a highly advanced, specialized webcam blocker and disabler with the best in class protection from variety of on-line threats.
You think saving the world justifies how the unvaccinated are being treated, but I'm not sure the world you want to build is worth saving.
Whether you agree with the veracity of their concerns or not, the intellectual minority deserves to be treated with the same level of basic human respect as any other minority.
One day this pandemic will be over. What kind of society will be left to future generations? Will they feel empowered to disagree with those around them? Will they see the measures we took against COVID, and their cost to society, as truly necessary?
I think the reason free societies are so rare throughout human history is because freedom is actually quite dangerous. There comes a cost. We naturally want to control what other people do so we can avoid that cost and feel safe. It seems wise in a moment of death and fear but is literally the very same slippery slope that has led to almost every dictatorship in history.
Do you think most dictators hold a knife to peoples' throats to take power? No, they are created by the people, demanding they have more power in order to save everyone from something.
All I'm saying is we need to be careful here, and not be so quick to judge and ridicule.
I am more than happy to be downvoted to hell for this one.
I’d like to add that camDown helps stop foreign state actors (FSA's) from accessing your webcam.
