The Golden Verses Of The Stoic

Seneca and Epictetus refer to the Golden Verses of Pythagoras , which happens to provide a good framework for developing a daily routine, bookended by morning and evening contemplative practices.

Vaccines work. Don't get that twisted. They don't "Cure". They work. Besides that, it should be law. It's not hindering anyone's legal rights. Jacobson v Massachusetts says so. So do a lot of others. This isn't new. You are already mandated to vaccines. They don't even need to write the law really, except as a Call to Action.

Be Better. Stop Promoting Harm.

It is within the police power of a State to enact a compulsory vaccination law, and it is for the legislature, and not for the courts, to determine
