What About My Rights, Personal Freedom and Liberty?

https://signalpress.blogspot.com/2021/10/what-about-my-rights-personal-liberty.html

YOU are not more important than ME and I am not more important than YOU. The boundary lines between your liberty and mine run along what causes the greater good for both of us and it requires education and a measure of wisdom, not ignorance and stupidity.

1. Let's talk about the 1905 SCOTUS ruling Jacobson vs Massachusetts

The rights of the individual do not outweigh the rights of many when it comes to public health.

Id say that makes it pretty clear.

And, just today, SCOTUS refused to side with health care workers in ME regarding not taking the vaccine

GET THE F..KING SHOT!

4. As has been posted before,

that says that the authority for a vaccination mandate is reserved for the states.

Some states do, some don't.

2. Exactly. What about my rights to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness?

Stuck in Covid quarantine does not make for happy people.

3. They have liberty to stay home

They have liberty to stay home, and if they need or want to work they can comply with rules like the rest of society does all the time.
