The people who avoid vaccination are not stupid, they are misguided, misinformed, and often confused. They think the default safe option is not to vaccinate. In a world that isn’t robust enough to eschew nonesense, that is hardly surprising.

How does the effect of increased risk to the non-stupid fit into your social evolutionary theory?
