Skip to comments.Rand Paul: Persuasion Is the Hallmark of a Free Society

Ultimately, perhaps we will all hunker down in our own ideological space, hoping to find respite from the mob, whether it be the metaphorical cancel culture, the CNN mob, or the real-life mobs running loose in our cities. Why confront mindlessness when its safer & less painful to avoid it?
But for now, lets suppose there are some thoughtful individuals left. A CNN opinion maker recently accused me of making wildly inaccurate comments about a coronavirus vaccine.
My supposed sin was saying the left wing mob would likely forcibly vaccinate even individuals who already have immunity like myself.
CNN argues against both the concept of immunity for survivors of coronavirus and the premise that no one would ever be forcibly vaccinated.
So, lets look at the science. Studies show that monkeys infected with COVID-19 cant be re-infected. Antibodies from humans whove survived coronavirus inhibit viral infection of human cells in vitro. Human antibodies from people recovered from coronavirus have been shown to hasten recovery when transfused into acutely ill COVID patients. Vaccine success is measured by comparing antibodies produced by a vaccine with antibodies naturally generated by surviving coronavirus.
It seems that the preponderance of scientific evidence argues for immunity after surviving coronavirus. In fact, there are NO studies that support the notion that coronavirus survivors do not have immunity. This is in accordance with everything we have learned about infectious disease in the last 100 years, from chicken pox to the flu strains having recovered from the disease confers immunity for at least a period of time.
Even the ever-so cautious Dr. Fauci admits that some form of immunity after infection is very likely.

Civilization is the progress toward a society of privacy. The savages whole existence is public, ruled by the laws of his tribe. Civilization is the process of setting man free from men.
The precondition of a civilized society is the barring of physical force from social relationshipsthus establishing the principle that if men wish to deal with one another, they may do so only by means of reason: by discussion, persuasion and voluntary, uncoerced agreement.
The necessary consequence of mans right to life is his right to self-defense. In a civilized society, force may be used only in retaliation and only against those who initiate its use.
Arm up, citizens. PREPARE to be UNCIVILIZED to the UNCIVIL. Your LIFE and this CIVILIZATION depend on it. Do not put yourself unnecessarily in a tough situation. THINK. - PGalt
When seconds count, the police are only minutes away...
So is executive branch officials not overstepping their powers and not creating laws/diktats
Yes, masks are not very effectkve. Yes, putting people in jail for not wearing a mask is the epitome of anarcho-tyranny.
Trump says he won’t issue national mask mandate
CNN is ATT
DOJ must break the back of ATT
A REQUEST IS NOT A MANDATE.
And reasonable or not, mayors and governors do not have the legal power to create laws. If its really that important those governors and mayors need to persuade the legislatures to pass a temporary law. Bypasing the people on something that directly affects all of them without any input and is also of little actual value isnt right.
Turning loose an army of “Karens” to shame people into wearing face diapers...yeah, better than Executive Orders.
They’re nucking futs but they’re entitled to their delusions.
Cool with me.
its an excellent review and summary
