Justine ran for office against a guy who's a friend, actually, but he stood up at the microphone and said Covid would be over November 4. Matter of fact.

An anecdote, perhaps relatable and revealing:

A friend of mine told me over the weekend the following: Last October, my friend talked on the phone with a longtime friend of his who he had not spoken with for a while. They had grown up together and had been close friends in high school and remained good friends beyond. COVID-19 came up. His friend said it would be over the day after the upcoming presidential election. My friend said in response that he must mean that he believed the intense media focus would die down after the election — not that COVID-19 would be over. His friend said, no, that he did mean Covid-19 would be over the day after the election. My friend pressed him on how he could, and why he would, believe that. His friend just repeated several times “that’s what I believe.” Finally, my friend, exasperated and trying to understand , said to his friend: “How can I talk to you if that is what you believe?”

There was no meeting of the minds. Nor, my friend sadly realized, would there be.

No anger here, just sadness that the world is allowing some to condone the demise of others over their differences in opinion and beliefs.  Freedom never tollerates such actions.
So if you rather, look to the history of Stalin, Khmer Rouge, Chinese Revolutionaries, Rwandans or countless others that have attempted to erase the rights of a segment of the population in the name of the "Good of the State".  Back to work and the music, and have a great day and may your opinion and beliefs never be cancelled.

Yeah, in the course of my business and travels this year I've been asked to show my vaccine card.... well, never. But they did demand my passport at the border, why do we bow to such oppression?  So silly having to live by rules, everyone should just live with awe and wonder at how I go about my day unimpeded by care or concern for any one around me.

don't be afraid to try respectable one on one (pie hole to pie hole) conversations with someone that heeds to be protected

easy the on the personal judgment, condescension and political poop
heavy on the empathy, patience, asking without offending and listening to concerns

building trust is key

Why Public Health Faces a Crisis Across the U.S.
An examination of hundreds of health departments around the country shows that the nation may be less prepared for the next pandemic than it was for the current one.
There are already signs that the growing shortfalls in public health could have lasting impacts beyond the pandemic.

More than 220 departments told The Times they had to temporarily or permanently abandon other public health functions to respond to the pandemic, leading to a spike in drug overdoses and a disturbing drop in reports of child abuse. Several health officials pointed to runaway infections of sexually transmitted diseases, with gonorrhea cases doubling and syphilis on pace to triple in one county in Pennsylvania. Oswego County, N.Y., recorded a surge in lead poisoning. In Texas, requests for exemptions to the usual suite of required childhood immunizations have risen sharply.

Mandates and mobilizations to protect public health have long been part of American life; colonists issued quarantine laws and fines for disobeying them as early as the 1700s. Public health departments later delivered vaccines to halt diseases such as smallpox and polio, upgraded water systems to limit typhoid and cholera, curbed sexually transmitted diseases and helped guarantee the safety of food in restaurants.

But not since the flu pandemic of 1918 has the country faced a disease outbreak that called for unelected health officials to impose widespread mask mandates and business closures.

As scientists helped overcome many infectious diseases, the focus on keeping Americans healthy turned more to individualized treatment for ailments such as heart disease and cancers, said David Rosner, a historian at Columbia University who specializes in the history of public health.

Many, particularly in conservative circles, have increasingly embraced individual rights over collective responsibilities, a trend that Dr. Rosner said is undercutting the notion of a social contract in which people work together to achieve a greater good.

“It’s a depressing moment,” he said. “What makes a society if you can’t even get together around keeping your people healthy?”
