But as much as anyone believes in the benefits of science as how it's taught now, vaccines, herd immunity, whatever, I think it's important to remember that we are NOT going to build some disease free utopian community on this earth. Wouldn't it be nice? But it's not going to happen. Death and disease will never be irradicated from the world we live in. Anyone who is paralyzed by fear of unvaccinated population is spending too much time thinking about the dangers there. There are dangers in everything we do, it's part of life.

Personally I think it's far more important to keep our ability to make our own choices than to throw that out in the hopes that herb immunity is real, that vaccines are safe and do the job they claim, and that it will actually have some significant effect on the death rate in the long run. I agree with other posters who have said that a country who forced vaccines on it's population would be a pretty terrifying one. Death and disease are natural facts of life and I'd rather live in a world where we're allowed to take our chances with nature than one where the science community and govt forces it's theories into our bodies. Essentially I do believe forced vaccines would just be one grand experiment on the population. And essentially I think anyone who argues the "anyone who is healthy enough for vaccines should be vaccinated" is saying there should be no exemption other than medical. In discussiong and theory it's fine, but to suggest it be practiced is very, very dangerous IMO.
So so true. And yes, it is very scary, and very dangerous! On another note...does anyone else wish this thread would just die already?
