Your sentence is meaningless.Your sentence does not address my point that " You cannot begin to name all those people with your imputed thoughts."
My evidence is my lived experience. Or more specifically, it is from observing expressed sentiments on social media between 2020 and now. Now, I don't mind if you don't believe me that I've noticed the change. But in terms of evidence of people supporting or being indifferent to the Austrian mandate--I would say the number of people on this thread who are indifferent or expressing support is more than zero. Indeed, not a single person has actually questioned this move.You wrote "The point is the number of people who would not have considered forced vaccinations under any circumstances in 2020 are now not only indifferent to the possibility, some are expressing support for it." You have produced no evidence whatsoever to support your claim.
Well, yes, I disagree with that policy. But I make the additional observation that there is ratcheting support for illiberal solutions to the Covid pandemic. Certainly, Biden in November 2021 would not agree with Biden in November 2020, when said he did not see a place for a vaccine mandate if he were elected President.I get that vaccine mandate upsets your values. There is no need to create "truthiness" to support your concerns. The gov't of Austria believes it needs to institute a vaccine mandate because it is more important to protect its citizens and to prevent its health care system from being over-whelmed than to preserve the choice to vaccinate or not of its citizens. You disagree with that policy.
Also, whether a 'vaccine mandate' upsets my values depends on the specifics of a policy.
