Please, share my content! I try to upload fairly regularly. Sometimes, though, I invest time in improvements which is bad for the social media algorithms. This time I made a pause to set myself up to make these illustrations that I premiere today with this video.
As Europe boils over in the face of aggressive anti-Covid policies, more and more nations add pain to injury and roll out vaccine mandates. Olaf Scholz, the prospective Chancellor of Germany, has already stated his support for this. But what are the justifications for it? How do unvaccinated people affect others? And more importantly are these externalities, the effects of the citizens’ decisions on others, big enough to warrant government interference? In my video I look at the heart of the controversy.
Yesterday, a Chechenyan pupil beheaded his history teacher. The murderer was taken aback by the presentation of Charlie Hebdo’s Mohammet portrayal. Apparently, he lived in a microcosm where it was unheard of that, first, this picture exists, and, second, that such pictures are totally unoffensive. It points to our larger cultural crisis in which Muslims and non-Muslims alike fall under the omerta du jour.
