Say goodbye to persuasion: Vaccine mandates may be coming -- but will they be legal?

"They didn't get vaccinated." Those words from President Biden summed up why his administration made a critical shift in its COVID policies, from mask recommendations to mandatory shots for federal workers. And that represents a third stage of government policy, toward a more confrontational approach to "them" - the increasingly demonized unvaccinated class that is roughly half of America.

But this stage could face legal challenges in coming weeks, as citizens and some states push back on mandates.

This month was a clear break from persuasion and a step toward coercion in dealing with those who refuse to be vaccinated. Even the normally staid Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is ramping up its rhetoric, declaring that the "war has changed" due to the Delta variant. For some, however, there is concern that Biden's "they" is a declaration of war on them.

Clearly, there is a rapidly diminishing level of communication between the "vacs" and "non-vacs."
