2, is what I read, which is not the point. I don't really have anything againstt vaccinating kids so long as it is reasonably well tested and properly done. I have said prior on prior tests that I am against compulsory/obligated vaccines in theory, though I am certainly open to consider scenarios where they might be enforced, I just think it is better for the sake of society/community if it remains something that is encouraged and voluntary because it helps maintain trust. That being said, I can see times where it may make sense to enforce it.
Also, I see a difference between enforcing (e.g. with some sort of governmental assistance, you will get the vaccine even if it means you will get detained and get it in prison and/or remain in prison if you don't get it ) and "encouragement"/cohersion (e.g. You don't get goverment benefits if you are not vaccinated, you don't get to work for the federal goverment if you are not vaccinated, you don't get medicare/medicaid if you are not vaccinated, you don't get tax breaks X or Y if you are not vaccinatted, etc).
For the record, I don't see anything wrong in theory with what Cuba is doing. To my understanding, their vaccines remain voluntary and people seem to want to get them. I cannot comment on their efficacy or lack of it simply because I have not read any literature in their efficacy. While I have a general distrust of the government, the society as a whole, I believe are fairly trustworthy and while I have not lived there in a long time and things have changed I don't really have anything to suspect wrongdoing at this time. Assuming vaccines are reasonably efficacious and safe, I think the way they are proceeding in terms of masks mandates and vaccine use is fairly reasonable.
I am capable of analyzing the system independently of the system's actions. But it has become clear to me, that some members, including @QatzelOk have much interpreting gray area and think they live in a black and white world, which it is fantasy.
That is why, as I suspected, he was unable to tell me that he disagreed with the Cuban's Approach, instead of tried to weasel out of a proper answer, but I still think I got what I wanted out of him.
