Freedom to end up on a ventilator

Faced with the alternatives, I find it wholly incomprehensible that people choose to refuse, even vilify, COVID-19 vaccines. Stating that imposition of inoculation and requirements of proof extend beyond civil authority is simply ignoring the underlying reason for them. When railroad crossing barriers and automobile stop signs have been emplaced, I cannot recall anyone protesting those actions as authoritarian overreach or of any violation of due process. While I am occasionally annoyed by the flashing signs warning pedestrians not to cross the road, I never thought of them as some sign of illegitimate authority.

The only response to those who feel victimized by vaccine programs is to inquire about how much freedom they will enjoy while existing on a ventilator in a COVID ward.
