Oh, screw that.It's basic human psychology. If you treat someone like a person and have compassion, they might actually listen. Instead of just saying you're dumb and wrong, you can actually educate. The same thing happened with HIV and it didn't go well. Stop repeating past mistakes.
Most of the anti-vaxxers were never going to be brought round: paranoid about the government, Big Pharma, or they're die-hard anti-vax from long back (e.g. as CM156 notes regarding Andrew Wakefield) and no amount of optimism or nice talking was ever going work.
It would be a lot easier to build trust if people weren't trying to convince everyone that public health leaders are mass murderers, e.g.:
Fauci killed more people just from the link below than Joe Rogan could've ever influenced.
