What needs to be done by our Nanny Government to end the seemingly endless conundrum to motivate people to decide whether or not to be vaccinated?
The Chicago Tribune articles today centered on this Conundrum range from President Joe Biden supposedly take-charge leadership to issue ultimatums to business to require employers to require them to be vaccinated, to lotteries incentives, to appeals, to etc. etc. etc.
The Purpose of This Post
Is to relate an ancient proverb. an idiom to this conundrum and the issue of ‘Nanny Government’ being the core problem and in my opinion the simplest solution that has been proven to be the most effective motivation in every society since the beginning of recorded history.
The prudent see danger and take refuge, but the simple keep going and pay the penalty. (Proverb 27:12)
Long life is in her right hand; in her left hand are riches and honor. (Proverb 3:16)
Idiom – if you pay peanuts, you get monkeys
Meaning People say if you pay peanuts, you get monkeys to mean that if an employer pays very low wages, they cannot expect to find good staff.
Nanny State Government – Definition
The nanny state is a term that describes the overriding influence of a government or its policies on people’s freedom of choice.
What’s My Point?
Most older people understood from experience how much more fragile their bodies become as they age and become more susceptible to suffer more complications when they become infected with a virus.
That is if they wised up to understand the ancient wisdom that was evident in ancient times. If a person lived in past eras to an old age, they were considered wise.to have managed to survive to live by living and avoiding communicable diseases without the modern medicine now available in our contemporary times.
My point is, the vaccines and masks are now available and if someone is either allowed into our Nation that Is unvaccinated by government it is folly on the part of our Government Nanny State leaders.
In My Opinion
President Joe Biden who claimed at the beginning of his term that his role is to lead us out of the Covid pandemic is a Nanny State leader that has apparently failed in his role as leader by allowing the Delta variant to enter and spread in the USA under his leadership.
If someone does not want to get vaccinated, and does not have insurance to pay his or her medical expense, it is time to change government laws that mandate hospital emergency rooms accept unvaccinated patients.
If insurers want to insure people who choose not to be vaccinated or not wear masks, they should charge them higher premiums.
If employers want to pay their added insurance premiums for people not vaccinated, it is their choice.
In other words, in a Nation founded on the belief of freedom of choice, it is time to end Nanny State Government leadership on the issue of Covid.
Or as the proverb and idiom relate, if people do not have to pay for their choices, they are either prudent or should be discerned to be similarly treated as monkeys instead of the monkeys who are paying their insurances through higher taxes or insurance payments.
Will the USA taxpayers ever wise up and elect legislators who believe in a Nanny State Government type of leadership instead of free choice of adults being responsible for your wise or foolish decisions and responsibility?
Should this issue still be a conundrum in a Nation founded on free choice and responsibility being reverted back by a Nanny State leadership same as monkeys which supposedly Darwin claims we humans originated from?
