Public health mandates have no place in a free society. In fact, the entire public health industry has no place in a free society. From its very roots, public health is a philosophically impoverished set of theories that leaves individuals both less free and less healthy.
Health is an individual matter and something that many hold dear. "Public health" is a manipulatively named term that is meant to pull at your heartstrings. It is the most vile imposition upon the lives of you and your loved ones couched in the most gentle and manipulative terms. That alone should tell you enough to distrust anyone pitching you on a public health solution: they have either been fooled or are trying to fool you. Either way anyone pitching a public health mandate does not deserve your trust.
I encourage all people to fight the imposition of public health in their lives.
Sometimes, that requires baby steps. Even the most bold champions out there, all of your favorite heroes, learned their ability with baby steps. I get many requests along the lines of "How can I avoid X public health mandate?" There are many ways. I find the below method works well.
1.) Read the Policy — Request a copy of their face mask exemption policy / vaccine exemption policy / PCR test exemption policy.
2.) Invoke an Exemption — If you fall under the exemption (millions of Americans do), notify them that you will be invoking the exemption by saying "I see you have an X Activity requirement. I am unable to do X Activity safely. What can you do for me (to accommodate this need)?"
