[Ed. – Democrats are hoping to ‘manage’ COVID forever.]
This is a bad idea.
Unfortunately, it’s everywhere now. After Cuomo announced his plan, the news cycle seems to be turning toward the subject in earnest. Debates about COVID vaccine passes are starting in Europe. Even Lord Jonathan Sumption, one of the most prominent British critics of lockdowns, seems to be resigned to vaccine passports, seeing them as the “least bad thing” — and the only way to avoid depriving everyone of access to normal life again. He sees it as the least intrusive and least coercive measure. This is wrong, too.
Vaccine passports for COVID-19 would be a massive disruption to normal life and would introduce a complete anomaly into the West — the need to show one’s papers, papers containing intimate information — to gain access to what we’ve heretofore thought of as public accommodations.
