[G]overnment may never stamp a particular medical opinion as orthodox and therefore binding. Moreover, compulsion can never be justified until the illness manifests itself and may therefore never be prescribed as a preventative. A third reason is that government should keep its hands off our bodies …The form of tyranny hidden in these vaccination certificates is just as real a threat to the nation’s spiritual resources as a smallpox epidemic itself. – Abraham Kuyper
The societal ambivalence around coercive measures emanating from Western states over the past two years, measures reaching into the family, church, vocations and sacrosanct communication of physician and patient, all in the name of safety, has been staggering. Mandates, lockdowns, restrictions, compulsory vaccination in various sectors, threats of national mandatory vaccination (Austria and Germany), even rounding people up using the military and placing them and their close contacts in quarantine camps has started to look routine (Australia).
