Thought for the day

If we’re going to demand that all our children be vaccinated for the well-being of the community-at-large, should we not then demand that everyone–man, woman and child–become vegans? After all, the production of meat and dairy products contributes significantly to global warming which may ultimately lead to the extinction of the entire human species. Furthermore the considerable amount of grain used in meat and dairy production, if shifted to human consumption, could alleviate hunger, malnutrition and starvation throughout the world.

My real point is this: Citing concern for the well-being of their community, a lot of folks have demonized parents who have concerns about vaccinations (some of whom have chosen not to vaccinate their children). Of course, it’s always easier to point the finger at someone else, but might not those doing the judging first acknowledge their own harmful actions, actions that severely impact the world community, before passing judgment? Judge not lest you be judged to paraphrase a book that was pretty popular at one time.
