I would not be in favor holding someone down and vaccinating them against their will, but I would not be opposed to prohibitions on being in public (enforced by fines) as a very ugly carrot. If you want to go off and live in the hills, go for it; but stay away from civilization.
I can't help but chuckle a little bit when thinking back on your statements concerning socialised medicine.
I don't see how they're connected. Help me?
We are in agreement, though I would add that putting a child at risk by not vaccinating them should be a criminal offense similar to neglect.
There's a practical problem with this: that outcomes from birth parents would have to be really bad for them to be worse than outcomes from the foster care system. I'm not sure a criminal offense that leads to children being taken away from misled but otherwise loving parents is a net positive, even if you don't accept the principle of broad parental discretion.
