Why is any of that OK? Repealed in Denmark, Sweden, Switzerland, not required in most of Europe, but forced in US. And apparently I'm the one making it political...

It's not OK. Was never OK.

The nuker claims this is boring culture war stuff. But clearly it's not about culture wars if these mandates are repealed in Europe. What gives.

Disappointing that the vaccine fanatics are nuking this. This sort of legitimizes the discussion taking place in the other thread.

Can we leave this up until the argument at least clears out of the postdoc death thread please?

Well if this is one is going to get nuked it's clear that the discussion should continue in the other thread.

The lack of self awareness is just astonishing.

Please explain how this is relevant to mathematics, as opposed to any other university major.

In great detail, of course, with much political digression.

It's relevant in the same way that DEI is relevant. It creates a less diverse environment.

There does seem to be a culture war aspect to this in the US. When I go to conferences, those on the left (and to a lesser degree, on the right) from the US very clearly stand out.

I suppose this is true in that it reduces the number of idiots in mathematics. So you're right, and this an excellent argument for imposing vaccine mandates.

The absurd thing is that after the first month or two, the two sides suddenly switched position in this particular battle. Early on, anyone who was worried about COVID was just racist against Chinese people. Then anyone who wasn’t worried about it was some kind of white supremacist Christian nationalist troglodyte.

And don’t even get me started on pridepox.

So again. The mandates are abolished in Europe. Why? Is it becausr Europe is populated by idiots unlike the US?

I’m vaxxed, and I think some of the liberal opinions expressed in this thread are disgusting. Partisanship is a hell of a drug.

Bro, no American gives a fuck about what Europe thinks. You guys have pretty buildings but that's it. You know how you tell Americans to mind their own business? You should take your own advice.
