Forced Vaccinations v. Homeschooling

Forced vaccinations is the same as forced Socialism:

. . . parents' fundamental right to control the upbringing of their children "does not extend beyond the threshold of the school door," and that a public school has the right to provide its students with "whatever information it wishes to provide, sexual or otherwise."

My personal belief is that individuals should decide for themselves and their children.

Parenthetically, excluding unvaccinated children from public schools will not shed a tear in the Homeschool Movement. I’d go so far as to say that parents who homeschool should not have to pay taxes for public schools they do not use.

There are many reasonable arm-twisting measures that could be taken to encourage vaccination, such as categorically excluding unvaccinated children from public schools, denying unvaccinated persons entry or reentry into the United States, and the like.​

As Kevin D. Williamson continues in a very informative article:

The fight over vaccinations is not a new one. Since the invention of vaccines, their use and their mandatory use have been a hotly contested issues. In the early days of the Progressive movement, when panels of experts in thrall to a vision of their managerial expertise rolled over the literally and metaphorically untidy cities and rural communities in which social dysfunction flourished, resistance to mandatory vaccinations became a crusade, especially in New England. The Supreme Court decided in Jacobson v. Massachusetts (1905) that the state could fine a Swedish immigrant who refused to undergo mandatory vaccination, protesting that he’d been made seriously ill by an earlier vaccination. Just a few years prior, the case of Wong Wai v. Williamson considered whether federal authorities could require that all of San Francisco’s Chinese residents undergo a fairly dangerous vaccination against the bubonic plague or be forcibly prevented from leaving the city.

In Jacobson, Justice John Marshall Harlan found that the vaccine resister in question could be fined, and punished for refusing to pay the fine, but that he could not be physically coerced into accepting the vaccination. But the precedent — that state interests trump individuals’ control of their own bodies — provided Oliver Wendell Holmes Jr. with the ammunition he needed to find in Buck v. Bell that “the protection and health of the state” was sufficient to justify involuntary sterilizations of “the unfit” and “defectives” — principally meaning mentally disabled people — whose rights were, in his judgment, not protected by the 14th Amendment, at least not to such an extent that they could not be forcibly neutered like stray dogs. “Three generations of imbeciles are enough,” the justice infamously wrote. As Jonah Goldberg notes in Liberal Fascism, the lone dissenter in the case was the “archconservative” Pierce Butler. (Read Jonah’s post on Margaret Sanger and contemporary eugenics here.) The subsequent history is pretty ugly.

The idea that elites know best, versus individuals’ control of their own bodies.

When it comes down to the nitty-gritty everything has been about the parasite class since Progressives (Socialists/Communists) first acquired political authority. From day one the education industry was after the money. Obviously, fighting education industry parasites presents a different problem than the problem posed by medical industry parasites-cum-Wall Street. So once again here is my oft-stated suggestion now that forced vaccinations is suddenly getting a lot of media coverage:

Tax dollars should NEVER be paid to any medical industry entity traded directly or indirectly on Wall Street.

I cannot swear that adopting my suggestion will end the government’s forced vaccinations, but there is one thing I do know beyond a doubt —— the health of Americans will never be the first priority for Wall Street’s absentee owners.
