Our Version of a Theocratic State

“[I]t is 2024, and Brazil is the only country in the world requiring Covid-19 vaccines for babies as young as 6 months up to 5 years old. The only one. Moreover, while Brazil mandates this, countries like the United Kingdom, Germany, Sweden, Denmark, and Switzerland — known for their respect for their populations — do not even recommend the vaccines for children. … I can’t think of a single issue related to individual freedoms where Brazil stands in opposition to the world, isolated, doing things differently from all other countries. None. … Only one thought remains for these people: ‘We are right, and the world is wrong.’ This is exactly the mindset of an average citizen in Iraq or Syria during the Islamic State era when they saw gays being thrown off buildings.” (07/01/24)
