This "both sides" deal is akin to the "anti-mandate" vs. "anti-vax" forced choice distinction that I'm trying to explore a bit currently.

In this case, it is inverted into "anti-passport", but still "anti-protest", (i.e. "pro-authoritarian")

The leaders are revealing a lack of coherent principle, and don't even know how to verbalize what they believe, what they are doing. And per usual, the science and data of the disease and the jabs is a million miles away. Irrelevant.

Critical. But irrelevant (edit:irrelevant to the policy makers and bureaucrats)
