The more I learned about vaccination and how it works, and what mass vaccination is meant to do and why we use it, the more kind of beautiful I found it, actually, in terms of being actually counter-capitalist in its ethos. Here’s a system that’s based on people voluntarily using their bodies to protect other vulnerable people. I just think that’s very different than a lot of what we see in this competitive, mercenary space of capitalism.
