    Putin: I Am Against Mandatory Vaccination And It Should Not Be Introduced In Russia

    Interesting, how Putin brings it here; smart guy, and I like the way how he presents it; feels much more convincing and trustworthy than most presidents and politicians in the West I have heard presenting this matter. Also nice that he just talks about Russia when giving his advice.

    Putin is among the more sane people approaching the reality of the matter as opposed to those who are obsessed and paranoid beyond belief.

    "No man [or woman] is an island", thus those whom actually care about the wellbeing of others will get the vaccine of one type or another.

    Care about the wellbeing of others?

    I'm going to play Devil's advocate here.....


    Why?

    Do you ever see people out in the real world?

    Many are rude, nasty, self serving , sociopathic, narcissist, and arguably psychopathic individuals.

    Why should anyone be expected nor want to even care one way or another about others?

    People Are Naturally Good, but Groups Are Not (Really)


    Why in the world, should one bother being a brothers keeper in such a nasty rude world?

    I did not know about Macron his view on this. And I totally agree. People should be aware of the importance to take it
    Forcing usually achieve the opposite. Nobody like to be told "you should" ... people (presidents) "should" know that by now

    But only the smart ones seem to know this

    Voluntary vaccination is fine with me....from the standpoint
    of universal government imposition. But individual entities,
    eg, businesses, schools, homeowners, have the right to
    control access to their premises, & may require vaccination.

    It's not "mandatory" to be vaccinated, but neither is it
    mandatory that I give up guarding safety of my workers.
    Don't like my policy? Then don't rent an apartment from me.

    Finally, my state is in the bottom of a top 50 rating that makes us seem cool.

    And no need that governments panic so much about it.

    In the end the most of the people will take the vaccine anyway IF they realize that they might die otherwise (Putin just phrased it perfectly). And making so much fuzz about "all must be vaccinated" in this moment is not even smart, because there are not even enough vaccines. They only achieve the opposite playing it in this way. Putin his approach is much better. Just explain and point out the importance to take the vaccine, and adding "of course you are free to decide yourself". That way you give people respect. The "North Korean like" way of mandatory vaccination will always backfire

    The threatening "if you don't take it", what they do in the West is just absurd. The West seems to be more about control then Russia;)

    And for people who have another alternative of "not getting corona" they don't need to take the vaccine. Most important is to be responsible. People having had the vaccine now, and hugging around might also not be responsible. People not having a good diet to improve immune system, nor doing some exercise or so many other options to improve immune system is also not responsible. It is not all and only about vaccine that will save you.
