EDITORIAL:         Remembering An Earlier U. S. Government Excess In 1943, the United States government rounded up all of the Americans that it could conveniently catch and imprison for the crime of having Japanese ancestry, excepting those serving in the military or other redeeming government service. That was a reflection of the ongoing war with Japan; no such effort was pursued against those Americans with German or Italian ancestry, though the wars with those countries were also ongoing. Forty five years later, the U.S. government apologized and paid each surviving internee $20,000. Today, that same government is depriving unvaccinated Americans of their employment and of other individual rights guaranteed by the United States Constitution. American children, for instance, must be vaccinated to attend mandatory public schools. Government statistics show that said vaccinations are dangerous and of increasingly questionable benefit; the severity of the disease is debated. Is anyone deprived of livelihood  or injured by vaccines today likely to see apology and reparations from the government we have now? .
