So I appreciate that the mod team has been cracking down on these kinds of posts, but I want to talk to the poster here. You know this is a garbage post right? You basically gave me 5 minutes of homework without any indication of why I should be interested. Apparently there's a protest in Denmark because of a proposed rule that would give the government too much power during these pandemics by allowing them to define groups that would be forcibly vaccinated and enabling the government to forcibly medically examine suspected Covid injected people. The video maker frames this as a lesson in what other populations should do to fight back and the woman in the video talks about supporting similar protest efforts in Canada, Australia, and all of Europe though I'm unaware of any similar laws being proposed in those countries. 

So yeah, this was a garbage post and you should feel bad.

Bet with Liquidlaser: I say PS5 and Xbox Series will sell more than 56 million combined by the end of 2023.

What, you Germs don't believe in survival of the fittest?  That's your loss.

We did once and then the US and Russia stepped in to stop it. Now they're the ones doing it themselves.

This planet is overpopulated.  Your Germs should know that better than anyone....at least you did back in the 30s and 40s.

After those times, you lost all my respect.

See, the sad part here is that I absolutely cannot tell if you're joking or not and that should be concerning to you.



If you demand respect or gratitude for your volunteer work, you're doing volunteering wrong.

Good laws i must say, without enforcement people fuck things up like you see with COVID in the US.

It's all about personal freedom and damn the rest, egoistic.

I wonder how many people will think this random youtube opinion is the holy truth.

Hollywood believed and knew in the 80's.

A story about the past, being told to a kid, sick in bed. Apparently in the book, the kid is horribly sick and has a terrible fever.

What a surprise. Who could have seen this coming when taking advice from a guy that coughed straight into his hands during a Covid safety press conference.

(Before someone says "It takes time to change your habits" like Trumpstyle did before, he's a lifelong career virologist. He's been well aware that even the seasonal flu kills ppl annually, and clearly doesn't give a damn to change his habits for the past 40+ years. Not to mention we learned to not cough into our hands in kindergarden as well.)
