    • As a scientist by background, I don't think a future where we lost faith in science for things like immunizations ever occurred to me. I would have said we eradicated smallpox. We put a man on the moon and the Internet in your pocket.

      When the Internet came, I am sure I thought that now everyone can know the earth really is round. But it seems it went the other way. How?

      One argument I can maybe understand is the vaccination law excluded some children from access to school.

    • I find that if I acknowledge that a politician's job may entail saying or doing anything to get policy in place that serves their largest constituency base...I can make better sense of their world. And hey...by definition, half of any population has an IQ below average.

      As well it should, IMO. Some children cannot be vaccinated because of compromised immune systems or other conditions. These children will be put at unnecessary risk if other children are not vaccinated because of their parents' compromised intelligence. Requiring vaccination for school attendance is a simple and effective means of guaranteeing compliance.

      BTW, it's not law yet and even if it passes the lower house, it will face legal challenge by regional authorities. I'm a little surprised that EU regulations do not seem to apply, but apparently not.
