    well dude, I can think of 1001 other things that people chose to do or not to do that the government could chose to control.
    Let's talk about alcohol. It meets all of the criterion above, perhaps we should outlaw it as well.
    I mean, after all, it does have "consequences for others".
    My thing, and I think I speak for a lot of people when I say this, is I don't like the government or anyone else telling me what I should or shouldn't do or how I should live. This is America and I am an American.
    Notice no one is busting your balls for getting a shot. Want to know why? Because we don't care.

    As to your comment on abortion. it does indeed have health consequences........mostly on the fetus.

    The illusion of freedom will continue as long as it's profitable to continue the illusion. At the point where the illusion becomes too expensive to maintain, they will just take down the scenery, they will pull back the curtains, they will move the tables and chairs out of the way and you will see the brick wall at the back of the theater.

    We are the result of millions of years of evolution, people died to offer us the chance to have a better life and here's what we did of it all !
    We didn't even realized that freedom, nowadays, is nothing more than an illusion. We are the slaves of money, of economy, of lobbies, medias and time.
    Our thoughts and dreams are our only freedom.”

    True, and not defined as a human being until a certain point in development. Still a woman's choice is in jeopardy. But over half a million fully developed humans don't have a choice in death because of the inability of others to help mitigate a pandemic. Why are people unable to differentiate the needs of he whole over the individual? That's what we are talking about here.

    And see I would argue otherwise. You are making a conscious decision to kill another either through ignorance or denial of the collective whole and mitigating this pandemic.

    So we should treat the flu the same way? What about the common cold, common for that to end up turning pneumonic in older individuals and killing them. Where do you draw the line?

    Yes, where do we stop the defining of a pandemic over an annual virus? I think we can safely say that Covid 19 is far more deadly and contagious than the flu. Removing an appendix, or not, does not effect anyone else's health, so no issue.

    True, thus the public dilemma over the liberties of the individual to the safety of the whole. But I think we can safely say the alcohol is far easier contained than a deadly pandemic.

    I fully understand this point. The dilemma over the whole versus the individual. In America we have valued the individual more so than the whole. And we paid the price, with this pandemic, for it. Unable to get on the same page for the whole. It's unfortunate. A paradox.

    So deadly here that drug overdose deaths were pretty much on par with covid deaths.........

    Not to mention the uptick in suicides because people have lost everything from these restrictions.

    81,000 deaths due to overdose in 2020 vs over half a million? Not even close. And again, drug overdose is not nearly as contagious, if at all, no comparison. Overdose Deaths Accelerating During COVID-19 | CDC Online Newsroom | CDC One could make the argument that the increase in overdose deaths may be our, United States, inability to deal with this pandemic. As was so poorly done by the previous administration.
