The U.S. Supreme Court might be due for a name change because “Supreme” gives it too much of a godlike quality, as in Supreme Being, which is one of our various attempts to find an appropriate name for God. And when you think of some of the men who have played key roles in shaping the Court, you move very far from anything resembling “divinity.” The most glaring example is Senator Mitch McConnell, who refused to allow a hearing on Obama’s Supreme Court nominee Merrick Garland on the grounds that 8 months before the vote was too close to the election, but who later approved the nomination of Amy Comey Barrett just a few weeks before the 2020 election. 

In any case, U.S. Supreme Court has committed murder on various occasions, so its recent decision forbidding companies to require vaccination of 84 million employees is not surprising. Consider, for example, its Dred Scott decision, in 1857, which declared that an enslaved person living in a free state was not entitled to freedom, and that, as someone’s property, had no right to sue. The decision also stated that Congress had no authority to exclude slavery from U.S. territories and that African Americans could not become U.S. citizens.

How many African Americans were killed by the Dred Scott decision? It is difficult to calculate exactly, but being deprived of citizenship and the right to sue are obvious threats to life, as was the poverty inflicted by slavery itself. If you cannot afford medical care and do not even have the freedom to seek it, your life is obviously endangered.  In fact, the average life expectancy of a slave at birth was only about 21 to 22 years, just half the average white’s lifespan of 40 to 43 years during slavery. Clearly a case of murder—mass murder approved by the Supreme Court.

We don’t know how many people will remain unvaccinated because of the Supreme Court’s homicidal decision against requiring vaccinations. We do know that unvaccinated people die at a rate at least 20 times higher than the vaccinated who have boosters, and it is quite obvious that an unvaccinated person transmits the virus to other individuals, and that large numbers of these individuals die. Since the cause of their deaths is transmission of the virus from an unvaccinated individual, this makes the unvaccinated transmitter—a murderer. A cold-blooded murderer, whose crime, alas, is not only forgiven, but sanctioned by the Supreme Court.

Now you could argue that instead of being murdered, the unvaccinated person who dies is committing suicide by remaining vulnerable to the virus. The problem with this argument is that many unvaccinated people remain unvaccinated because of the falsehoods they receive: these include the idea that vaccination causes sterility, or that vaccination installs transmitters in the bloodstream, or that it has fatal side effects. These ideas from self-appointed experts convince people to avoid vaccination, and they remain convinced of this unless someone manages to persuade them that these ideas are nonsense. Since these “experts” are spreading false information that persuades people to avoid vaccination, they are clearly accomplices in the Supreme Court’s legalized murders.

The shocking result of this homicidal insanity is that the U.S. continues to experience very high casualties from COVID, with more than 900,000 now dead, hospitals packed to the limit, billions of dollars spent on intensive care for its victims and billions of work hours lost because of the illness. I leave it to creative lawyers to discover a way to hold the Supreme Court guilty of the supreme crime of murder, and guilty of all costs incurred from lack of vaccinations.
