Ancient civilizations frequently had their levels of citizenship that ranged from slave, through freedman to nobles.
Some contemporary nations still have castes, including one for untouchables.
The newest version of that division of people into different classes has been announced at Quinnipiac University, where students who fail to provide proof of COVID vaccinations will be deprived of Wi-Fi access.
And fined sums potentially reaching into the thousands.
Broadcast outlet WHDH reported the Connecticut school, in an email, warned 600 students who have failed to meet the university’s demand to share a copy of their COVID-19 vaccination record.
The school claimed the health records demand is to “protect the health of our entire university community.”
The vaccines currently available in the United States all are experimental, and while they have had a significant impact on the number of original COVID case being reported, a new Delta variant of the coronavirus seems to be able to infect the vaccinated and unvaccinated just about alike.
But the report said the school informed students who fail to provide their papers “will face a weekly charge, costing up to $2,275 for the semester. The fee starts at $100 per week for the first two weeks of the semester and increases by $25 every two weeks up to a maximum of $200 per week.”
Unvaccinated students also were told they’ll have weekly, on-campus testing.
Further, the school threatened that access to the Quinnipiac network and Wi-Fi system will be revoked if a student has not fulfilled the vaccination requirement by Sept. 14, the report said.
The Daily Wire noted that the penalties “presumably” are for students who have not acquired a medical or religious exemption to the demand they take experimental vaccines.
The report noted, “Many universities have opted to institute vaccine mandates for students who wish to return to campus learning, including large public universities such as Indiana University, Rutgers University, and Michigan State University.”
But there are other schools, such as the University of Michigan, are pursuing requirements for students and faculty to wear face masks, in addition to being vaccinated.
