You can’t always do what you want

You don’t often hear people arguing in favour of open defecation. When you expect people to do their dirty business in a toilet, you don’t often hear them say, “So, no freedom? I don’t have a choice?”

No, because sanitation is important and necessary you don’t get to drop trou anywhere you want. Your freedoms do not extend to behaviours that endanger others.

Same for the series of CoViD vaccines you will have to take over the next few seasons in order to participate in public life. If you can, you will have to get those vaccines, because if you don’t, like sewage in the streets, you will pose a public health risk to everyone else.

You can probably understand that your “rights” are limited with respect to poop… the follow through is that this applies to other things as well.
