When the pandemic started it was Christmas 2020. The first reports of people getting sick in high numbers came from China, and in order to keep the money flowing, and people from panicking, no government or government councils, dared to stop transport of people and goods from that area. We wouldn’t want to upset the biggest communist empire in the would, would we? Especially since we want/need their cheap goods.

While China did what had to be done and enforced immediate and brutal lockdowns, the politicians in the non-communist world kept postponing making the right and hard decisions until if they tried, people would not have taken them seriously. Regarding certain matters, governing a country is like raising a child. To raise them right, sometimes you must make decisions they won’t like. If you are lucky and they are old enough, you might explain to them why you are making the decision and they might understand and accept it, even if they don’t like it. If the child is a toddler, or a child that has been spoiled and allowed to do all they wanted up until a certain point in their life, making a decision that affects them in a way they don’t like, won’t be accepted, understood, or tolerated and they will rebel.

People that grew up in rather democratic countries, and were provided an average education, if any, are the worst kind, they are teenagers grown up with too tolerant parents.

If the government tells them they need to get mandatory vaccines, of course they will refuse and resist it. For the purpose of this entry, let’s ignore arguments such as poverty, and essential services, and others, let’s focus on the analogy. No wonder we have so many antivaxxers, antimaskers (I can’t believe these are actual words in the dictionary now) and people falsifying records to show they’ve gotten their vaccine.
