How terrible the long lasting scars of war even decades after the conflict finished.
However painful, I think it's time to forgive and forget. Life is too short to be mired in bitterness and anger.

Never let a good (overblown?) crisis go to waste. There's plenty of money to be made from vaccines and other compulsory measures.

the nation’s board rooms are scrambling to assemble talent pipelines that look more like the nation as a whole
Will this push for diversity also include 'people that think more like the nation as a whole'? That would include liberals and conservatives, Democrats, Republicans and independents, atheists and religious, city and country, etc.

The problem with this is the emphasis on 'looks'. Skin color shouldn't matter. Choosing someone to fill a role because of skin color amounts to excluding another because they are the wrong color which is racism.
How about simply choosing candidates simply on merit alone?

You never responded to the very clear example I gave why this is not a rational position, was the example "too" clear?
I'd rather not go around in circles with you virusrex. How about we agree to disagree with no hard feelings? All the best to you and yours.

Considering the extremely low risk of death or serious injury to children by Covid I wouldn't place my kids at risk with an injection of a rushed vaccine they don't really need.
Let every family make thier own decision without judgement or coercion from others, especially the government.

Japan ranks 132nd for deaths per million population. All the while keeping the country as open as possible and minimizing economic and mental health damage. It's a tough balancing act, but i think the government is doing as well as they can.

Major contributors to decreased incidence of disease in modern times are higher standards of sanitation, clean drinking water and food. This along with maintaining a healthy immune system should be the first line if defense. Then vaccines should be considered, but not mandatory.

You want vaccine refusers to pay consequences for injury or death caused to others by thier decisions, yet you refuse to pay consequences for those injured or killed by your decision to have them legally forced to vaccinate against thier will.
Respect for human rights is a two way street.
As I said to you before, the only fair solution is to let everyone make thier own decision without judgement or penalty.
0 ( +4 / -4 )
That is still an invalid argument for making irrational choices and expecting others to pay for the consequences instead of yourself.
If I agree to suffer legal consequences of my choice to not vaccinate, will you agree to pay the legal consequences (damages) for your choice to mandate others to get vaccines and suffer injury or death? Yes or no?

Another booster shot needed? I thought the vaccine 'works'?
This might be part of Big Pharma's great business model for long term profits with no risk.
Never let a good crisis go to waste. (Covid)
Create a solution vaccine that 'works' but doesn't always work or work very well, so you need perpetual booster shots.Heavily fund politicians on both sides of the political aisle and pressure them to pass laws to make vaccines mandatory and to also free you from liability for the deaths and injury resulting from your product.

Where there are such risks there must be choice without penalty.

People that act irrationally
So you're saying that people who are aware of the fact of vaccine caused injury and death and want to avoid it are acting irrationally and should be punished?
1 ( +4 / -3 )
science study the vaccines, and when they are found to be safe and effective above any rational doubt
I don't think those who have already died from the vaccine would agree with you. You need to give equal respect to the scientific fact of Covid vaccine injury and death as you do to your own concerns.
0 ( +3 / -3 )
Ok, so do you want a scenario where vaccine refusers pay damages to families of those who suffer Covid injury, death, job loss etc, and people like you pay damages to those who suffer vaccine injury, death, job loss etc? Would that satisfy you?
You see where this is going? The only solution where everyone's rights are respected is if we all respectfully allow each other to make our own decisions and take our own actions according to our own conscience.

Medical reasons not to vaccinate includes the desire to avoid vaccine injury. This is a human right that cannot be denied.
0 ( +5 / -5 )
Don't you think that you should decide for yourself what your reaction should be and allow others to decide for themselves what thier reaction should be?
Everyone's human rights must be respected.

"other reasons"? If that means people refusing, then it's not a matter of discrimination. Allow vaccinated people to travel relatively freely and impose quarantine and other restrictions on those who aren't. Otherwise, this nightmare is going to drag on forever.
I find it problematic that some of those who are afraid of Covid are suggesting that those who are not be segregated out of society. If someone is afraid of Covid shouldn't THEY be the ones hiding?
I suggest a fair solution: Let everyone react as they feel best without any discrimination towards others.
Those who want to vaccinate, go ahead.
Those who don't, you're free not to.
Those who are afraid to go outside, mingle and use public transport, you're free to keep to yourself.

We need to create guidelines to prevent discrimination against people who AREN'T vaccinated against COVID-19 because of allergies or other PERSONAL reasons.

While there are still a lot of great productions, Hollywood has become terminally infected with open disdain for whites, religious people, conservatives, and many others. So of course those people have begun to tune out.
Then of course there's the problem of great content being replaced by gratuitous violence, materialism, shallowness, and all manner of poor quality.
It's unfortunate because Hollywood used produce many classics.

Those not trained in science tend to misunderstand the word ‘theory’.
The vast, vast majority of scientists, from different fields, converge on this theory.
It is universally understood as a theory by all honest scientists. Every single one of the following respected universities' and other sites uses the word 'theory' in referring to it. Thus it should be presented as such in schools, if taught at all.
etc, etc, etc........

Evolution is a theory, speculative guesses based on evidence in nature. There were no eye witnesses to the events. The scientific community admits so.
Therefore rather than presenting it as fact it would be more honest and fairer to the inquiring student to use terms such as 'believe'.
