The general is too kind:
France’s General Christian Blanchon published a tribute letter to the unvaccinated in September 2022, calling citizens who refused the COVID injections “superheroes.” The letter made waves in Europe and around the world among people critical of draconian COVID policies but was largely ignored by the mainstream press.
I've lived in Pakistan, Saudi Arabia, the US, and Canada. I've learned repeatedly that most people are idiots. Therefore, "peer pressure" has zero effect on my life. Of course, this Covid nonsense went a bit further. Face diapers were required for public transportation. Covid passports were mandated for gyms, restaurants, cinemas, theaters, air travel, etc. That did impact my life but it was a small inconvenience. Today, masks are optional and the passport has been removed. Society is slowly catching up to reality.
