How COVID-19 Vaccine Mandates Skew Campus Viewpoints

SHARE | PRINT | EMAIL

The collateral effects of the mandates seem undeniable. Universities have not just driven away students and faculty more skeptical of COVID-19 vaccines and boosters; they are also driving away students and faculty with different views on all sorts of other issues.

Coercion on Campus Stops When Students Say No

SHARE | PRINT | EMAIL

What can you do as an individual against a multi-million dollar institution full of important people with doctorates? What if you get cancelled? What if you lose everything you have worked for? These are important considerations. But remember this, 21st-century universities are commercial enterprises and you are their customers. They don’t exist without you.

Mask Up, Berkeley Students

Seems like UC Berkeley is living in some authoritarian reality, where it is acceptable to dictate medical procedures based on their own twisted morality, values and virtue signaling.

The Universities Failed Us During the Pandemic

SHARE | PRINT | EMAIL

Both universities and governments imposed extreme policies, extending to the micro-management of everyday life during lockdowns and gross violations of human rights, including the right to bodily autonomy. These extreme policies were not supported by hard evidence of effectiveness either at the time or since.

The Persistence of Covid Cruelty on Campus 

SHARE | PRINT | EMAIL

Human beings hate to be proven wrong. And credentialed humans even more so than the rest. Consequently, they will go to mind-bending extremes to sustain that their clearly equivocal actions were, in fact, heartily justified. Moreover, misery truly does love company.

SHARE | PRINT | EMAIL

Many of the very best schools in the nation are still requiring vaccines and boosters. However, some of the very best schools in the nation are not. Luckily a group has taken it upon themselves to sort this issue out for parents and students.

The Generation of Children Raised by Fear 

SHARE | PRINT | EMAIL

Our hearts groan, for two years not only have we shattered any myth that children are resilient, that they can take whatever trampling adults see fit to dole out in the name of fear, but we have shattered the myth that our society can take it.

University Vaccine Mandates Must End Now

SHARE | PRINT | EMAIL

One of the most nonsensical aspects of continuing COVID-19 vaccine mandates is that individuals who survived the mandates last year – that is, were fortunate enough to be granted religious and/or medical exemptions – have to reapply this year. Did these religious reasons suddenly change without the person complying with the mandate initially?  Did these medical reasons that were severe enough to compel a physician to write an exemption suddenly go away?

How I Almost Did Not Graduate from Stanford University

SHARE | PRINT | EMAIL

Stanford should end its vaccine mandate entirely. It’s an unscientific and unethical imposition on students who do not need protection from COVID-19 with vaccines or otherwise. And that includes the Stanford students who are on campus, going to class, and those without prior infection and natural immunity. COVID-19 was never a major threat to us young people, and it still isn’t.

Sorry, Kids: We Were Wrong

SHARE | PRINT | EMAIL

The road to healing and rebuilding ahead is still long, but as a first step we must take responsibility, admit that we have lost our way, and ask our children for heartfelt forgiveness. At the same time, we must direct massive resources toward our children in order to repair the harm of the past two years, in both the socio-emotional and the educational spheres.

Mask Mandates at Tufts University: Wrecking Campus Life

SHARE | PRINT | EMAIL

Mask mandates have done their best to engender a school environment that is devoid of human connection and visible emotion; is this what we hoped for when mandatory masking went back into place in May 2021? The administration’s decision to renege on this transition indicates they are willing to forcibly mask everyone in perpetuity. For a policy that is ineffective at best and harmful to the mental health of many members of the university body, this is unacceptable.

When 800 Mainstream US Scientists Warned Against Lockdowns

SHARE | PRINT | EMAIL

Back then, hundreds of professors associated with Yale University organized a letter with signatures to send to the White House. The letter was dated March 2, 2020. It was signed by 800 credentialed professionals largely from the fields of epidemiology and medicine. It might have taken us in a different direction than the one in which governments took us soon after it was published.
