People are anxious to resume their normal lives and attend public events.
They’ve lived under COVID tyranny for over a year.
But Bruce Springsteen is barring people from a concert for one shocking reason.
As the pandemic rapidly dies down, restaurants, bars, sporting events, and concerts are beginning to open up in all parts of the country.
Rock legend Bruce Springsteen is returning in concert with an upcoming Broadway show.
But not everyone is invited.
Vaccine passports are mandatory for entry, but not just any vaccine.
From the New York Post:
“The Boss’ Broadway show will go on – but only for fans who got the right COVID-19 vaccine.
Rabid rock fans looking to celebrate a return to normalcy by taking in Bruce Springsteen’s Broadway show later this month will be on the outside looking in if they’ve received the AstraZeneca vaccine, which hasn’t yet been authorized by the US Food and Drug Administration.”
So only people who have taken the Pfizer, Moderna, or Johnson & Johnson vaccines may attend the concert.
Springsteen is a fierce liberal, so it’s no surprise his concert would have such establishment rules.
This concert edict is a glimpse of what’s on the horizon with vaccine passports.
The U.S. government can’t force people to take an experimental drug, but businesses can—and apparently they’re more than willing to do so.
Vaccine passports are a dangerous blow to individual liberty.
If governments can get citizens on board with this, then they can pressure people into complying to just about anything.
It was shocking to see just how quickly people were willing to give up their rights in response to the suffocating COVID lockdowns.
Trillions of dollars were lost from the economy, and deaths of despair skyrocketed.
The psychological toll won’t be known for years, nor will the cost of neglecting other infectious diseases like tuberculosis.
Some states are pushing back against vaccine passports—Florida governor Ron DeSantis is fighting against mandatory vaccines imposed by businesses in his state—but far too many are willing to comply.
People should be allowed to make their own decisions about vaccines in consultation with their personal physicians.
But that’s not the message being propagated.
The corporate press and the publicized experts want absolute compliance with the vaccines.
Dangling pleasures and creature comforts—like Bruce Springsteen concerts—for social submission echoes Aldous Huxley’s “Brave New World.”
George Orwell—a pupil of Huxley—posited in “1984” that an authoritarian government would use Soviet-style coercion.
But so far, Huxley’s version of a dystopian society seems more apropos of the current moment.
Comply in order to attend a concert, embark on a cruise, go to a football game.
However, the next step could be compliance in order to open a bank account, rent an apartment, or attend college.
These difficult questions about civil liberties need to be addressed right now before it’s too late to turn back.
