Vaccine passports are an affront to liberty

One of the easiest ways to make a deadly error is to take action to address a problem without giving careful thought to whether the action you’re taking will solve the problem, or if will have dire unintended consequences without solving anything.

In a surveillance video, a crowd watches as the man attacks the woman, doing nothing as he hits her and then walks away.  “When I saw that, I thought, ‘That could be my mother.
