I wrote a short piece about the dangers of politicizing the vaccines. Turning vaccines into a political issue on which the parties take opposing views could have disastrous consequences to public health.

“The very act of ordering in international politics is often coercive and illiberal. You often find yourself employing incredibly illiberal means towards a supposedly liberal end—ends that often don’t materialize.”

Powerful politicians and media might make you think that richer countries are doing more than enough to help people fleeing war and persecution. But in reality, nearby countries are left to protect them.
