Self-proclaimed Libertarian Megan McArdle, meet cognitive dissonance:
I recognize that people have a right to abide by their conscience, and I would not want public health officials to force children to be vaccinated. I just think that people who are unvaccinated, unless they have a legitimate medical reason for same, should not be allowed to use public roads, public sidewalks, or public services. They have a right not to vaccinate their children. But they do not have a right to risk my health.
Ooo-kay… This is what passes for libertarian thought in the mainstream press: We won’t force you to take the vaccine, but if you don’t, your family is under house arrest.
Wait a minute — Megan, if you’ve been vaccinated, exactly how are you at risk?
