So they actually take away your choice
You dont really have a choice if they imprison you
His real attitude is revealed at the end, and that is the attitude all totalitarians have:
If you dont do it my way you can die.
They pretend to give you a choice but its not a real choice at all. Its coercion and threats and demanding you do something against your will and conscience.
That is exactly the same mentality behind those here in america.
Here is the problem for the Philippine, which is where I live. The majority of the vaccines are the Chinese brands. As the article says, the Philippines has a very limited supply of vaccines and no where near enough to vaccinate the whole population.
The next issue is that the majority of Filipinos live in the provinces in rural areas which are extremely poor. Supplying vaccines to this population would be a logistic nightmare. And the Philippines does not have the money to vaccinate even a majority of these folks.
As for me, I refuse to take the vaccine for personal reasons. 1, I am type 2 diabetes, 2, I have COPD, 3, I have venal insufficiency, 4, I am 69 years old, and 5, there are too many side effects that have not been fully investigated/studied in order to ensure that if I took the vaccine that I would not be sealing my death warrant.
At this time Duerte hasn’t made this threat an order, but he is unpredictable, so there is that. The worst they could do to me is deport me, (and my U.S. citizen 8 year old son). That would be hard to swallow considering my house and car would have to be left behind, but if that happens, so be it.
