What I Believe

What I believe
---
I believe in personally understanding science and not solely trusting others to decide what is true for me

I believe that people are often fallible, even scientists and doctors

I believe in medical freedom, bodily autonomy and informed consent, all free of coercion

I believe forcing anyone to take a medical treatment they do not consent to, is violence and is wrong

I believe coercing anyone to take, or not take, a medical treatment for any reason is wrong

I believe discriminating against anyone based on their medical treatment status is wrong

I believe we can always find ways to solve societal problems without violence, coercion or discrimination

I believe in our infinite and god-like ability to create solutions to our problems that do not require violence, coercion or discrimination

I believe when others claim that violence, coercion or discrimination are the only ways, they are always wrong, as given more time and effort, a solution that does not require these can be found

I believe in love
