Reason Magazine Editor Robby Soave Tells Libertarians to Submit to Vaccine Passports to Avoid Mask Mandates

Reason Magazine senior editor Robby Soave is telling libertarians that they should submit to vaccine passports if it helps stave off face mask mandates.

Soave set up a bizarre false dichotomy in a series of Twitter posts where he posited that submitting to vaccine passports, at least if it meant avoiding face mask mandates, would be worthwhile.

“I would much, much, much, much, much, much, much, much rather be required to show proof of vaccination than be required to wear a mask. And I suspect I’m not alone,” he wrote.

“I’m not a supporter of government mandates in general—and have in fact opposed virtually all covid-era requirements—but if it’s a choice between one or the other it’s not even close,” Soave continued.

“I say this to point out the weakness of the anti vaccine passport position. I think many people fear, reasonably, that the alternative is a semi-permanent mask mandate, which for me and others feels a lot worse!” he added.

While Soave makes excuses for vaccine passports, actual libertarian leaders are standing up against the vaccine regime that is aggressively moving toward the destruction of the Bill of Rights and Constitution.

Liberty Conservative News has reported on Rep. Thomas Massie’s war against phony libertarians who do not support the right to refuse:

Rep. Thomas Massie (R-KY) has stood valiantly, as any libertarian-minded individual should, against the scourge of mandatory vaccines.

He made a simple statement against mandatory vaccines on his Twitter account last week, in which he implied that mandatory vaccines enforced by government edicts were anti-American…

While this sentiment would be expected to offend far-left control freaks and maybe even some busybody conservatives, corporate libertarians funded by the Koch Network also took ire with Massie’s common sense pro-freedom sentiment.

Cato Institute constitutional scholar Ilya Shapiro posted a comment explicitly in favor of mandatory vaccines in response to Massie.

Massie responded incredulously to the remark, wondering whether or not Shapiro’s perspective was the official viewpoint of his employer.

This caused other Koch acolytes to dog pile on Massie, such as the openly feminist Reason editor Elizabeth Nolan Brown.

Massie has been one of the few lawmakers in Washington D.C. who has expressed skepticism toward COVID-19 vaccines. There is currently a fevered push to get these experimental shots into as many people as possible while they are still gripped by the mass hysteria over the virus. He said last month that he does not plan to take the vaccine when it is rolled out.

“I do hope a vaccine is developed soon, but I won’t be taking it,” Massie said.”

Koch-funded hacks like Soave will always support the neoliberal corporate order even if it is highly detrimental to individual liberty. Massie, on the other hand, will stand for freedom even if it hurts his standing in Washington D.C.
