The Case Against Vaccine Certificates

Posted on: March 12th 2021
By: UK Liberty Party, Kevin Bruns

One year into the coronavirus debacle and it looks like vaccine certificates are just around the corner. ‘It’s just two weeks to flatten the curve’ has mutated into various forms and has now arrived at ‘it’s just a vaccine certificate to get you into the pub’. Britons have been starved of their freedom for so long now that they are welcoming this prospect and are of the belief that ‘freedom’ means giving up part of one’s bodily autonomy to obtain certificate proof of vaccination against a virus with greater than a 99.7% survival rate.

I despair at the inability of the British public to observe the danger of vaccine certificates. Although it should come with little surprise given how readily Brits have submitted other liberties thus far. Additionally, after months of denial surrounding vaccine passports, it is the Conservative Party, the party with the purpose of conserving British values, pushing the idea. Of course, this gains unmitigated support from the media class who are all too keen to sow their narrative of fear and tighten their grasp around the British public. Keir Starmer and the Labour ‘opposition’, as with everything else, remain useless on the issue and will be there to usher the certificates in when the time comes.

Opposition to vaccine passes can be found scattered throughout the media but all attempts seem half-hearted and doused in the sentiment of someone willing to accept anything that will allow them down to the pub for a pint. The damning opposition that is needed during this defining moment in the fight between individual versus the state as hard to come by.

Vaccine certificates are a heinous attack on individual rights which must be wholeheartedly rejected, even by those who may wish to get the vaccine themselves. Vaccine certificates are simply a roundabout way of the state mandating vaccines by imposing certification requirements on basic amenities and activities, so much so that the individual’s choice is cut down to the point where they are effectively coerced into a medical procedure they may otherwise have avoided. Individuals have a right to choose and act on their own volition, free from coercion. Individuals should be free to choose whether they want to go to the cinema, the pub, the theatre, or other and should be free to do so without having to undergo a medical procedure as enforced by the state. The state is intentionally attacking these activities because they provide value; they bring happiness and cohesion amongst individuals. Without these values, life becomes so miserable and burdensome that handing over bodily autonomy to the state becomes the more appealing option.

Many cite the notion that ‘vaccine certificates are our gateway to freedom’ as if freedom means ‘endure coercion up to the point where you are left with no choice but to undergo a medical procedure still in its trial stages so you can be granted permission by the state to enjoy the pleasantries of everyday life that you enjoyed before’. Vaccine certificates are antithetical to freedom. Something that is built on a premise of coercion and diminution of choice, demanding the surrender of one’s bodily autonomy, cannot, by any means, be considered as ‘freedom’. Freedom is the barring of using force against one another, whomever the ‘other’ is. It is the fundamental requirement for you to live your life; you are an animal of the mind. To try and think whilst looking down the barrel of a gun is to stop living; it is your life in crisis. The British government have in effect pointed their gun at you and demanded your life. It is never “Just…” when force is being used against you.

Briton’s surrender to vaccine certificates sets a terrible precedent for the future. Accepting the government’s premises that vaccines and vaccines certificates are required, for a virus with over 99.7% survival rate, lays the foundations for the path to medical tyranny. Accepting these premises means the case is already made for vaccines and vaccine certificates when the next virus of the same, or greater, threat comes along, and it essentially signs the contract for repeat covid vaccinations each year. It is bewildering to see so many reciting ‘it’s just a vaccine certificate’, as if the last year of ‘it’s just two weeks to flatten the curve’ did not happen.

Vaccine certificates are proposed as digital certificates to be stored on mobile phones. This ultimately requires a centralised state database of the medical status of almost every individual in the country. This is an outright violation of privacy. It is no business whatsoever, of anyone other than the individual, and their chosen medical provider, as to whether they are vaccinated or not.

The digitalised nature of certificates raises concerns for even more sinister potentials, such as a social credit system. Many will say ‘oh that’s just a conspiracy theory. That could only happen in China, not here in the UK’. Well, rewind by just over a year and many would have said the same about state mandated lockdowns and quarantines. Now look. Nothing is off the table at this point.

Digitalised vaccine certificates can easily morph into a social credit system where behaviours are tracked and scored, and individuals may lose or gain rights or privileges as a result. In China, individual’s social behaviour can influence the rate of interest they receive on a loan, their ability to buy property, board a plane or a train, their ability to apply for certain schools or jobs and more. It is an unmitigated violation of rights, once unimaginable in the West, but quickly becoming more of a reality. Mass surveillance already exists in Britain which provides the precursory infrastructure for social credit scoring. Even if the prospect does seem unimaginable here, any advance in that direction must be unwaveringly pushed back on.

Unfortunately, there is a concerning readiness from private business to enforce the state’s covid edicts. Some may say: ‘Well, if a private business wants to request vaccine certificates for access, then they have every right to do so’. Whilst this may be true in a completely free market, it is delusional to think that in today’s context, private businesses exist as entities entirely separate from the state. In reality, the state has private businesses in a choke hold and are ready to cut off that last supply of oxygen they need at the slightest sign of non-compliance with covid hysteria. The state has done nothing but brainwash and bribe private businesses for the last year. It is naïve to think that all the arrangements and restrictions would be adopted in absence of state involvement. The requirement for vaccine certificates is no different. Those businesses who refuse to adopt vaccine certificates will be threatened with having their government grants, loans and assistance revoked.

Businesses should have the integrity to say no to vaccine certificates, and all other covid restrictions, upon reopening. Businesses supporting vaccine certificates are condoning the two-tiering of society where coercion acts to undermine individual choice regarding bodily autonomy. By requiring vaccine certificates, businesses are capitulating to the state and giving a nod of agreement that the state can float immoral, draconian orders, and businesses will partner with them to enforce them. Any business who opts to reopen with the requirement of vaccine passports is opting to reopen in partnership with the state and sanction the growth of covid authoritarianism. It is beyond the pale that any business should choose the side of their destroys over the side of their supports, their customers. Consumers who value their liberty should vote with their money accordingly and avoid patronising businesses who sanction the undermining of bodily autonomy.

There exists also a collusion between the state and large corporate interests which has led many to have their reservations regarding the vaccine. Many people are concerned that the likes of Bill Gates and Tony Blair are using the corporate power of their institutions to influence vaccine policy and uptake. Admittedly, some conspiracies regarding these two, and many other figureheads, are far ranging. But regardless of the extent to which one chooses to believe these, there is no question that such power, over such important issues, should not be delegated to these unelected sociopaths who seem so intent on controlling large swathes of populations on a global scale. Any effort to advance the power of these unelected despots should be resisted and reversed to allow as much power as possible to reside with the individual.

Yellow fever is often cited by apologisers as an example of where vaccine certificates already exist. But the two are not even comparable. Firstly, yellow fever certificates are required for travelling to places where the health situation is much more precarious, and hygiene and sanitisation standards trail those of the Britain. Yellow fever is distinctly more dangerous than covid, with a case fatality rate of up to 75%, which dwarfs covid’s case fatality rate of less than 1%. Additionally, research and experimentation into the yellow fever vaccine began at the turn of the 20th century, including animal testing studies, before being released over 30 years later, in 1937. Since then, the vaccine has undergone many revisions and developments. It was not until 1982 that a finalised version of the vaccine, presumed clear of all contamination, was secured. [1] Contrastingly, the covid vaccine, is an mRNA ‘vaccine’, never used before on humans, developed in several months, with no animal testing and is still in trial stages for the first two years after human release. It is not surprising that many people are sceptical about getting the jab. Seeking to coerce people into taking this vaccine by stripping them of choice is truly abhorrent.

Moreover, the yellow fever vaccine certificate is a simple card, which is rather different to a digitalised certificate where individual’s health data is stored behind a QR code on a centralised database. The yellow fever card is only required when one wishes to travel internationally to countries that demand it. It is not required for domestic travel in Britain. Nor is it a requirement of meeting up with family, going down the pub with friends, seeing a show in the theatre or a music artist at a concert, as a covid vaccine certificate would be. The clear distinction is that the yellow fever vaccine requirement does not back an individual up to the wall so much that they are coerced into taking the vaccine if they wish to continue to enjoy the values of everyday life that were accessible little over a year ago. The covid vaccine certificate, on the other hand, seeks to do exactly that. It aims to reduce individual’s frame of choice so much that the trade-off of taking a vaccine against one’s own unhindered volition, is worth it.

Vaccine certificates are simply a roundabout way of mandating vaccines. They are an evil concept of coercive control which seek to target all that is valuable in life, with the aim of inducing fear and desperation, to the point where individuals are forced to make a medical decision at the point of a gun. Any promise of ‘freedom’ from something which first requires one’s submission is entirely illusory. Any promise of ‘freedom’ is not freedom at all, but instead the submission to compulsion and tyranny, which signs the contract for a repertoire of further abuses from the state and corporate power. Just as ‘it’s just two weeks to flatten the curve’ was not ‘just’ that, vaccine certificates will not ‘just’ be a means of accessing one’s favourite activities. It should be abundantly clear by now, to even the most naïve spectator, that the state cannot be trusted and giving concessions to them does not reward anything other than further abuses. This in mind, no matter how big the gun becomes, and how much the state threatens with it, individuals and business owners who value their bodily autonomy, their liberty, their freedom, must act with unmitigated integrity to reject this egregious attack on liberty, absolutely.

Our Philosophy

We are the only UK party that consistently holds that your Rights are inalienable. We will not accept any violation of your Rights.

We do however have a very different perspective as to what Rights are. Unlike those that claim Rights simply exist or are God given, we take the approach of first asking "What makes you human?"

The answer to that is the basis from which the moral principle of Rights is derived. That is; your mind. You are not born with any innate knowledge. You do not instinctively know how to grow food or hunt, how to make clothes or build a house. Everything that you do begins with your mind. Your mind is your tool for living.

To be able to use your mind you have to be free to think, to reason, to choose, to act. The only way to prevent you from doing this, and thus to stop you living, is force (incl. coercion) from others. Rights are the moral principle of freeing you from force by others.

Of course, this alone cannot stop those that choose to initiate force against you. Some people will do bad things.

This is where the political recognition & protection of your Rights comes in to play. A political system simply says that a society will not tolerate someone violating your Rights and that those that do will face punishment under the Law. This is freedom.

You can live your life knowing that those around you understand the consequences of violating your Rights. Your interactions with others are peaceful and voluntary.

Being able to take the neccessary actions to fulfil your life by exercising your freedom, guaranteed by your Rights, is true Liberty.

EDUCATION

Most people recognise that private schools are cognitively superior to government schools but, taxed to support government institutions, are unable to pay twice for their children's education. With the abolition of the government schools must come the repeal of the income and property taxes that finance them, making it possible for millions of parents to now afford quality private education.

By taking schooling out of the government's hands and placing it where it belongs — in the hands of parents — we respect the right of individuals to choose the school they want for themselves and their children, we definitively terminate governmental initiation of force in the educational field, contributing to freedom of the mind, and we vastly improve the educational levels in this country. A free market of education will deliver superlative levels of literacy in this nation.

Moreover, a marketplace fully open to competition, teems with diverse options; for example, the restaurant industry offers a wide array of choices — from dozens of popular fast food chains to diners, sandwich shops, family restaurants, ethnic restaurants, and all variations up to and including establishments offering five star cuisine. (And supermarkets are a cornucopia of diverse foodstuffs to be purchased and prepared at home.) Similarly, when the monolithic government school system is abolished and education is privatised, a vast array of options will emerge to meet parental demand: More children will be home-schooled; tutors will offer academic services in a wealth of subjects; teachers will open tiny individualised schools; education corporations will be founded and open large-scale school systems across the country; and on-line education will proliferate.

HEALTH CARE [NHS]

The provision of universal medical care has become prodigiously more and more expensive. At the same time, not coincidentally, we recognise that the United Kingdom is not a free market system, it is, and has long been, a mixed economy — an unstable amalgam of capitalism and socialism, of freedom and government controls, of individual rights and statism.

We maintain that a National Health Service, backed and enabled by government intervention in the health care field, has immensely boosted demand for medical services without generating a corresponding increase in supply. The market feedback mechanism of supply and demand is broken and thus costs of provision precipitously escalate.

A free medical marketplace will enable the next wave of bio-medical advances, including ever more effective pharmaceuticals, pioneering surgical techniques, disease-detecting technology, as well as other life-saving developments.

We support a gradual but full phasing out of National Insurance and the National Health Service, over a period of several years, giving responsible individuals sufficient time to make alternative arrangements to pay medical costs, and for private medical charity organisations to form.

ENVIRONMENT

The earth is roughly 4.65 billion years old, possessing therefore a vast history in which climate change occurs naturally and ceaselessly. For example, millions of years ago, long before human beings existed, much less industrialised, huge naturally - driven temperature swings — significantly larger than the 1.5 degree Fahrenheit rise of the past 150 years — caused the onset and, in time, the cessation of ice ages.

We recognise that the best opportunity for human life to flourish during such periods is provided by electric power, indoor heat, thermal clothing, advances in medical science, air conditioning, sun screen, and the like — all products of applied science, technology, and industrialisation. Whether or not human industrial activity contributed to the slight warming of the past 150 years, two truths are certain: This mild warming, despite decades of alarmism, poses no immediate catastrophic threat to human life — and government's restricting of the economic activity required to attain flourishing life across all climates, is the exact opposite of a proper course of action.

The human environment is kept clean and safe primarily by advances in science, technology, and industrialisation. For example: development of steel and concrete enables construction of reservoirs, water mains, indoor plumbing, and sewer mains that keep sewage out of the drinking water; advanced technology enables men to drain swamps that are breeding grounds for malaria - carrying mosquitoes; heating and central air conditioning permit human beings to live comfortably in extreme climate conditions, without breathing smoke from indoor fires; and so forth.

Eliminating all subsidies to both fossil fuel companies and "alternative" or "green/renewable" energy companies, and a definitive end to government incentives/penalties for energy producers will encourage free thinking entrepreneurs to develop and cultivate earth's resources in service of human life.

ECONOMY

Centuries of free(ish) markets and statism demonstrate two practical conclusions: When the individual's rights are protected to freely engage in production and trade, immense advances result in innovations, in creation of both material and intellectual wealth, in living standards, and in human life expectancies — but when the individual's rights to voluntarily produce and trade are curtailed by government interference, when statism in any form is rampant, then progress stagnates, the creation of wealth plummets, living standards diminish, and life expectancies decline.

We therefore advocate for a strict legal separation of state and economy in the UK, just as, and for the same reason, there exists a legal separation of state and church. Just as religious belief and practice is — properly — a matter of private choice and initiative, so are men's economic choices and activities.

If business persons, like religious persons or clergy, initiate force or fraud, they should be properly prosecuted under the laws of the criminal justice system that protect individual Rights. But if they initiate neither force nor fraud, then the government must be constitutionally debarred from interfering with their activities.

It is time that the 'free' in free market actually meant something.

COVID vs RIGHTS

Back in March 2020 we were warning the British public and wider world about the dangers of our political classes' obsession and hubris with lockdowns and similar draconian measures. While the government were issuing slogans and reassurance about "2 weeks to save the NHS" and "seeing out the spring", we were predicting many months, perhaps years of stubborn policy failure, u-turns and flip-flops and, in the meanwhile, economic and social decay as a result of an obviously flawed and morally dubious policy approach. Likewise, while we were promoting sense, reason, proportion and hope, using widely available public data about the nature of the virus, governments and media conspired to conduct a deliberate campaign of fear to justify greater and lasting use of state power to curtail, abuse and violate your Rights, Freedom adnd Liberties.

The Government and Opposition in cahoots and a compliant media conspired to sacrifice the many under the arrogant delusion they could play heroes to the few; the result of this has indeed been the sacrifice of the many - many livelihoods and businesses, as well as the education, financial stability, social fabric and personal lives and happiness of millions. Despite all this, however, the government has not succeeded in solving a health crisis; rather, it has sparked one in the soaring numbers of untreated afflictions, notably cancers, cardiovascular problems and mental health. Tens or hundreds of thousands of people will die as a result of the government's policy. The government had the information to avoid this. They chose to do it anyway. To them your Rights are by permission. This must never happen again.
