This is a short yet compelling speech about freedom of choice when it comes to vaccines.
Here’s a transcript of this portion:
“But it is not the goal that renders the system oppressive – it is always the methods by which the goal is pursued. Whenever a government claims to have the people’s interest at heart, you need to think again. In the entire history of mankind there has never been a political elite sincerely concerned about the well-being of regular people, what makes any of us think that it is different now? If the age of enlightenment has brought forth anything, then certainly this: never take anything any government tells you at face-value. Always question everything any government does or does not do. Always look for ulterior motives and always ask: cui bono, who benefits? Whenever a political elite pushes an agenda this hard and resorts to extortion and manipulation to get their way, you can almost always be sure: your benefit is definitely not what they had at heart. As far as I am concerned, I will not be vaccinated with anything that has not been properly vetted and tested, and has shown no sound scientific evidence that the benefits outweigh the disease itself and possible long-term side effects – which, to this day, we don’t know anything about. I will not be reduced to a mere guinea-pig by getting vaccinated with an experimental drug. And I will most assuredly not get vaccinated because my government tells me to and promises in return I will be granted freedom. Let’s be clear about one thing: no one “grants” me freedom, for I am a free person. So I dare the European Commission and the German government: throw me in jail, lock me up and throw away the key for all I care, but you will never be able to coerce me into being vaccinated if I, the free citizen that I am, choose not to be vaccinated.” – Christine Anderson, member of the European Parliament, at a press conference in Brussels on Oct. 28, 2021

(Likely wouldn’t agree with her on many things; but it’s not just “those uneducated people in southern Manitoba” that don’t go for this.)
