Measles was considered eliminated at the turn of the millennium. Now it’s back, thanks to the loons to refuse to vaccinate their children.


I had a long, long conversation with a radical leftist libertarian a couple weeks ago about whether forced vaccination was ever rationalizable under say the harm principle and he argued that the self-ownership cost of forcing someone to put a chemical in their body outweighed the potential long term benefit to society of blocking diseases, because it's rare that diseases actually return quickly because of vaccination gaps.

He was so wrong.
