just came across this gem; During the Nuremberg trials, A judge asked Hermann Göring how did Germany accept all the madness, he said; “It’s easy, Just tell them they are being attacked and they will follow their leader. This works in every nation”.
The key to get people to comply is FEAR

Fun fact, this quote isn't real.
Quote from: Reuters link=https://mobile.reuters.com/article/amp/idUSL1N2LM23W
The quote was likely a manipulated excerpt from the 1947 book "Nuremberg Diary" by Gustave M. Gilbert (here), a psychologist who had access to the prisoners during the trials.

In the book, Gilbert describes a discussion with Goering on how a government may force people to go to war, to which Goering responded: “…It is the leaders of the country who determine the policy and it is always a simple matter to drag the people along, whether it is a democracy or a fascist dictatorship or a Parliament or a Communist dictatorship.”

Reminded by Gilbert that “in a democracy the people have some say in the matter through their elected representatives,” Goering told him that “voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger. It works the same way in any country."

If anyone is pulling the patriotism card, it's the anti vaxxers.

And regarding using fear, that is the classic move by both sides. While Fox goes to extremes to convince viewers illegal aliens are killing Americans, MSNBC is predicting the end of the world next week because of climate change, etc.

The same fear campaign you're accusing the pro vaxers of is being waged by anti vaxers scaring people about fertility, being guinea pigs or whatnot. Except the deaths have piled up by the thousands from covid and the vaccine fears have not materialized.
