“The loudest, most extreme voices in the room tend to get the most attention, which is why the debate over vaccines and vaccine mandates seems to be between a group of people — including legislators and governors who claim to support limited government — who insist that not even private businesses should be allowed to require proof of vaccination for service or employment, versus another group of people — including leaders from the nation’s preeminent civil liberties organization — who say the government should be able to mandate vaccines for everyone. Though it receives far less attention, there is another position on this spectrum: Individuals and private parties should be permitted to adopt whatever rules they please, but the government should refrain from mandating that people inject something into their bodies.” (09/02/21)
