The DC vaccine mandate kicks in this weekend. My office will not comply. We will not show papers. We will not order takeout from restaurants that require papers for dine in. We will get our food from Virginia or we will bring it to work. Shame has befallen our nation’s capital.

Mandates = Coercion ... Beat the people down until they give in despite medical/religous issues or no long term safety data

If the gummit mandated that we all wear hats, that would be coercion. Masks to slow a pandemic, is not.

Coercion is Coercion, it matters not the reason. "The intimidation of a victim to compel the individual to do some act against his or her will by the use of psychological pressure, physical force, or threats." Learn English, then try some rational thought.

Ah yes, the obligatory pedantic dictionary definition, and some gratuitous ad-hom to boot. All just to duck the point? Why be obtuse? Can you see the difference between the two cases?

What difference? In both cases, you are being coerced. You just happen to feel that one is justified and the other isn't. But don't be obtuse and say one is NOT coercion just because YOU agree with it. You're just proving C.S. Lewis right....
