The American Civil Liberties Union presumably sides with that majority. The right to fresh air is not a right at all, and it has nothing to do with personal liberty. Recirculated carbon dioxide is perfectly functional, thank you very much. Vegans photosynthesize it and so should you!
It is common for re-openers to point out that Covid restrictions hurt the poor the most. While the six-figure professionals are able to work from home, the waiters and shopkeepers are not. The voiceless poor are dying, literally, for things to return to normal, they say. Seems plausible, but it doesn’t manifest itself here. Quite the opposite, in fact.
One potential obstacle in the drive to tie mandated vaccinations–if a mask mandate is fine, what’s wrong with a forced vaccine?–to something like a resumption of normal life in the US is our neurosis over “disparate impact”. If the Costco greeter turns away people who aren’t current on their Covid shots, what happens when community activists start noticing that it is black and brown people who are disproportionately denied entry? When The Science creates an immunization apartheid state, what happens to The Science?
If uneducated white men are the most intransigent, though, the vaccine mandate will be viewed as a smashing success by the powers that be. It looks like that will turn out to be the case.
