The definitive case against the vaccine mandate that is completely neglected

The two opposing camps in relation to vaccine mandates both primarily predicate their arguments on the significance of vaccines in safeguarding public health. Those who are for vaccine mandates aver that the mRNA vaccines are the apotheosis of Covid-19 treatments, so miraculous that the forcible compulsion of others for such treatment is wholly justified.

On the other hand, others who are against vaccine mandates bring attention to alternative treatments and new data which seemingly undermine the prevailing perceptions of vaccine efficacy. Seeing as there might be more than it meets the eye, they repudiate the vaccine mandate. While both schools of thought have their merits, they fail to take into account a consideration that renders the premises of vaccine mandates moot in the first place. This blind spot pertains to the neglected premise of law.

Before we even discuss vaccine mandates as law, it would be ridiculous if we fail to ascertain the nature of law and its capacity.

For this, we can take reference from Frederic Bastiat’s observations in his magnum opus ‘The Law’.

Bastiat begins with the premise that all human beings are bestowed with life, liberty and property with their existence.

“Life, liberty and property do not exist because man have made laws. On the contrary, it was the fact that life, liberty, and property existed beforehand that causes men to make laws in the first place”

Frederic Bastiat, The Law (1850)

Whilst seemingly obvious, the beauty in this statement is that it succinctly disabuses the widely held sentiments that the law provides one with life, liberty and property. This is inaccurate. Rather, the law provides security for one’s already existing life, liberty and property.

With this in mind, we can proceed to Bastiat’s conception of the law.

“Each of us has a natural right — from God — to defend his person, his liberty, and his property… If every person has the right to defend — even by force — his person, his liberty and his property, then it follows that a group of men have the right to organise and support a common force to protect these rights constantly.”

Frederic Bastiat, The Law (1850)

Indeed, every person has a right to defend the aforementioned faculties, which suggests that the law is the collective right of people in protecting said faculties. There is not much meaning or logic in disputing otherwise.

Bastiat subsequently highlights how his above observation holds value in determining the boundaries of law.

“Thus the principle of collective right — its reason for existing, its lawfulness — is based on individual right. And the common force that protects this collective right cannot logically have any other mission for which it acts as a substitute. Thus, since an individual cannot lawfully use force against the person, liberty or property of another individual, then the common force — for the same reason — cannot lawfully be used to destroy the person, liberty, or property of individuals or groups.”

Frederic Bastiat, The Law (1850)

Because a person has no jurisdiction in violating the personality, liberty and property of another individual, it follows that the law, which is an agglomeration of the jurisdiction of many individuals, holds no place in such violation too.

Such is the negative concept of the law; its capacity only lies in defending. While the law can be used to prevent one from engaging in the harm of others, it cannot be utilised to compel one to act against their own personality, liberty and property.

A simple example would be how it is perfectly reasonable for the law to punish thieves, molesters and murderers (those who harm others) but unreasonable for the law to force a person to engage in charity or to exercise even if it serves to benefit everybody including the participant.

Vaccine mandates are diametrically opposed to such a notion of law.

As Bastiat states:

“When law and force keep a person within the bounds of justice, they impose nothing but a mere negation. They oblige him only to abstain from harming others. They violate neither his personality, his liberty, nor his property. They safeguard all of these. They are defensive; they defend equally the rights of all.”

Frederic Bastiat, The Law (1850)

Vaccine mandates impose more than a negation, they directly impose a fixed choice for an individual. It is evident that this is in direct violation of one’s liberty and person.

It is expected for proponents of the vaccine mandate to bring up the Harm Principle and point out Bastiat himself stating that the law’s purpose is in ‘(obliging) him only to abstain from harming others.’

If vaccines help to prevent serious symptoms from Covid-19 which when uncontrolled would lead to a burden in healthcare, or even better, prevent one from contracting Covid-19 itself, then failing to take the vaccine would lead to the harming of others. This justifies a vaccine mandate.

This perspective is as popular among the advocates of the vaccine mandate as it is easy to deconstruct and viewed as flawed.

When Bastiat mentioned the harming of others, he is referring to direct harm as opposed to indirect harm. The same is applicable for the notion of the Harm Principle.

This conclusion is one that is easily reached with a little bit of logical reasoning.

Suppose that Bastiat and the Harm Principle were referring to all forms of harm, including indirect forms, they would be irrelevant in all discussions of society. Every action we take will lead to indirect harm to others however minute.

Consuming more of a limited resource will always lead to lesser resources for others to consume; the problem of scarcity engenders the persistent presence of indirect harm. In such situations, there will always be those who are unable to access said resources and one’s access to said resources indirectly contribute to the inaccessibility of said resources to these people.

Hence, it is absurd to claim that either Bastiat’s philosophy or the Harm Principle encompasses indirect forms of harm as such a standard imposed would render everyone culpable.

Taking into account the targets of a vaccine mandate, one would see that the bulk of the population are not currently infected with Covid-19. In other words, a vaccine mandate would mean for those who are healthy to be vaccinated.

What is noteworthy is that the healthy cannot and do not directly harm others through Covid-19. They can only do so only after they have contracted Covid-19. Thus, it perfectly follows that there are no legal precedents that warrants an imposition of will or the infringement of person and liberty against those who have not engaged in the harm of others.

Furthermore, even if the target audience of a vaccine mandate is shifted towards those who are currently infected with Covid-19, there are still insufficient or controversial grounds for supporting vaccine mandates.

After all, it is only when one who is infected intentionally maximises his social interactions can he be considered to directly harm others through his weaponization of Covid-19. Otherwise, is he not a victim of circumstances? Can his adherence to his routines and activities for his sustenance really be considered as something to be penalised? Let us not forget that nobody intentionally contracts illnesses too. Is it reasonable to impose restrictions on a group of people who are bound by the shackles of fate?

If anything, is the act of resuming life whilst infected dissimilar to an act of self defence; in this case, one that is against the effects of Covid-19?

With respect to the limitations of healthcare, if we were to fault people for being in a position where they are a liability to healthcare services, would the indirect harm on public health due to a multitude of factors such as genetics, diet, exercise, sleep and so on not suggest that everyone is at fault?

The conclusion is that there is simply no case for vaccine mandates.

Vaccine mandates are an overreach of law as it strips away one’s liberty when it has no capacity to do so as there has been no precedent of a direct infringement of person, liberty and property committed by any groups of people in the first place.

The above argument holds even if the vaccine do contribute more than they destroyalthough this has been sufficiently proven otherwise by the extensive repository of counter-literature (which further undermines the case for vaccine mandates).

Singapore’s decision to impose a quasi vaccine mandate is a shameful one that will always reflect poorly on the dominant political party and the pusillanimous quasi established opposition in the eyes of those astute enough to see it.

    Athletes Die After Receiving COVID Injections, Hundreds More Develop Serious Health Conditions

    https://www.globalresearch.ca/540-athletes-die-after-receiving-covid-injections-hundreds-more-develop-serious-health-conditions/5777548

    Good Sciencing has provided a non-exhaustive and continuously growing list of mainly young athletes who had major medical issues in 2021 and 2022 after receiving one or more COVID shots.

    “Initially, many of these were not reported. We know that many people were told not to tell anyone about their adverse reactions and the media was not reporting them. They started happening and ramping up after the first COVID vaccinations.

    The mainstream media still are not reporting most, but sports news cannot ignore the fact that soccer players and other stars collapse in the middle of a game due to a sudden cardiac arrest. Many of those die – more than 50 percent,” Good Sciencing revealed.

    “Most, if not all of these athletes have suffered heart problems after COVID vaccines. At the time of initial writing, 28 died. That was not normal, but then, 10 days later, 56 deaths were listed, and the numbers are climbing.

    Any other real vaccine would have been pulled off the market long before now. The media would be asking questions. They would be pressuring governments. But they are not. And governments continue running TV and radio and newspaper ads encouraging people to get their first, second, third, fourth shot.”

    Good Sciencing added that many posts on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, forums and news stories are being removed.

    Even now, I believe that $inkie athletes are seriously affected BUT are not told the TRUTH by the Regime and its so-called ‘medical professionals’.

    They are being told lies and this will make things worse – ending in possible heath collapse or death. If you are vaxxed you have a ticking time bomb insode you and no one knows when it will go off.

  • Harder Truths:

    The Covid Government Power Grabs are massively intrusive, coercive and authoritarian

    https://hannenabintuherland.com/financialcrisis/the-covid-government-power-grabs-are-massively-intrusive-coercive-and-authoritarian/

    The 2022 report, “The Right to Be Let Alone: How to Safeguard Your Freedoms in the Face of the Government’s COVID-19 Power Grabs,” posits that the government’s response to the pandemic has become a massively intrusive, coercive and authoritarian assault on the right of individual sovereignty over one’s life, self and private property.

    Having already conditioned the population to the idea that being part of society is a privilege and not a right, such access could easily be predicated on social credit scores, the worthiness of one’s political views, or the extent to which one is willing to comply with the government’s dictates, no matter what they might be.

    As $inkieland is one of the most Authoritarian Regimes in the world, be prepared for further demands to give up whatever small freedoms you have left. Because this is coming and there is no way it can be stopped.

    In case this has slipped under everyone’s radar (and I have not seen any report on it as well) the PAP has changed its tune on the second booster. They were so adamant that everyone must get a first booster or else they would revert back to being unvaccinated but this second booster is RECOMMENDED only for certain age groups and not forced upon for everyone.

    See the difference? Why aren’t they forcing the second booster onto all? Don’t they love telling us that the vaccine wanes after a certain time and boosters are necessary? So that being the case why stop at just the first booster? Might as well say that all must get booster every 270 days right? The virus is still spreading on the island and people are still dying daily so it must still be dangerous isn’t it?

    Goes to show that the government can’t even decide what it wants!

    Harder Truths: You are right.

    This is because there is no point trying to make dead people even deader.

    TRE Tech, I expected them to go insane on the boosters to be honest. But their about-turn on this issue just reinforces the opinion that they don’t know what they are doing to no one’s surprise.

    And Harder Truths, what you say is sad but true. They have not said that Hong Kong has a higher number of deaths than we do due to their elderly not being vaccinated and so therefore vaccination helps in preventing deaths. But even if they said this no one would care since the publics’ impression of them isn’t as great as it was compared to the past.

    Tech: I am tempted to agree with you. They have been clueless since day 1 and have been stepping on their own toes since. Pity the 95% Sinkies who are either going to be very sick, weak or drop dead. With the court-ordered expose on Pfizer, there is no longer an iota of doubt that the mRNA vaccine kills and causes serious injuries.

  • Spineless Sinkie Syndrome:

    Don’t worry, NO one (not even a Satanic DEVIL) can FORCE you to take the “Xperimental Jabs” if you just say NO!.

    YOU decide for yourself. So be ALERT & WARY of your own choices.

    This is how the whole Universe works.

    It is like the story of the Serpent in the Garden of Eden, it cannot FORCE anyone (whether by man-made laws, by govt mandates or whatever ruse they can come up with), to FORCE Adam & Eve to eat a certain evil Fruit, unless they Choose to take it of their own free will, whether due to Ignorance, Foolishness, or a moment of weakness, yes?/no? LOL.

    IF the SERPENT were to coil itself around Eve or Adam and FORCE the fruit into their mouths, then Adam & Eve would still have been FAULTLESS and they would NOT have been cast out of the proverbial Garden.

    Similarly, IF your gahmen or Mata kicks down your door (like the CCP) or pins you down to jab you while you shout & scream “NO!”
    Then, YOU will still be faultless and have NOT committed the Original SIN. yes?

    This is WHY, the SERPENT has to resort to all kinds of TRICKERY, FAKE info, hiding the Truth of these “Xperimental Jabs” (e.g. Pfizer trying to delay data release of their jabs for 75 years! LOL), Coercion (e.g. No Jab = No Job) etc. etc. to TRICK YOU to giving in and/or willingly CHOOSE to take it yourself.

    In other words, if the SERPENT had FORCED any soul to eat the darn forbidden fruit, then the SERPENT would have NOT collected on any Souls, because those Souls did NOT CHOOSE to take it themselves, yes?
    The SERPENT would have FAILED, if it had physically FORCED people to take it.

    That is WHY, in the grand scheme of things, only YOU can make the CHOICE.

    The Universe allows you (as a Human Being) to MAKE YOUR OWN CHOICE.

    Making that CHOICE means YOU bear the Fruit or the Consequences of YOUR OWN CHOICE. That is WHY you came here as a Human Being. Full Stop.

    Even the Demon, the Serpent or the gahmen or whatever has NO POWER over you … because NO one can “force” you to make that CHOICE for yourself.

    if you have a SPINE and exercise your own clarity, even the Devil is HELPLESS before you and will have to stand aside from your path.

    PS: Now, for those who wants more Scientific grounding rather than religious symbolism. Here’s a Swedish clinical paper demonstrating that the mRNA DOES get into your DNA and becomes encoded in its future (liver) cell line.
    That is, it CHANGES your DNA blueprint… at least for Liver cells, but who knows what other cells DNA too? yes?/no?

    The Australian Senate has concluded a special enquiry into Australia’s handling of Covid.

    Here is a top US medical expert, Dr. Peter McCullough testifying and it is worthwhile to listen to him
    https://rumble.com/vyb162-covid-under-question-dr-peter-mccullough.html

    The rest of the video recordings…
    https://drtrozzi.org/2022/04/17/australia-covid-under-question-inquiry-complete-video-collection/

    Summary:
    - Vaccines do not work
    - Vaccines cause harm
    - No need for lock-downs
    - No need for masks

    I urge MOH to debate this issue with Dr. Peter McCullough. It is about the future and the fate of Singapore.

    Again I say, go buy 4D, your chances are higher than waiting for MTF to address the issues that you have highlighted.

    @Harder Truths

    Dio dio, why bother to kill a dead person twice. lol

    One sad comfort one can find in the vaccine madness is that it has made everyone of the 95% equal, in that since they are all vaxed, then they might be dropping like flies and get seriously ill. So powderful or rich, the end result is the same, no one can escape from the inevitable.

    I remain unvaxxed…family members have had Delta and Omicron and I have none. I rely on my natural immunity and sensible lifestyle.

    Spore is not likely to mandate vaccinations. No country has a Law mandating vaccination. Plus countries are slowly opening up again.

    Those unvaxxed have won. Each day I wake up alive without fear that I will succumb to the many adverse events… cancer, TB, diabetes, cardio-vascular, neurological diseases, etc. No worries at all.

    Just live my normal life and be extra careful on the roads…never know if someone loses control of his vehicle due to collapsing from the jabs. Even standing by the roadside, I exercise more care..stand a bit further back, near to a large object, etc.

    Myocarditis (heart muscle inflammation) is the most common and fearful word I keep hearing from the experts.

    There is no such thing as a mild myocardities. Some experts predict those with myocardities may die within five years. And I think of the kids and teenagers who are getting the jabs.

    I am on record with MOH stating I am against vaccinating anyone below age 20. If I write to MOH again, I will state…No Vaccination except to the elderly who have co-morbidities.

    I think of that teenager who was lifting twice his body weight, who collapsed and almost died. He had myocardities. MOH paid out the full compensation…only reserved for those with permanent serious injuries or who have died.

    I just hope that teenager is alive today.

    Vaccinating against Covid is strongly discouraged by experts and there are dozens of peer-reviewed papers on that. But in Singapore, MOH is following the dogma.
