It really boggles my mind when people refuse to wear a mask*. These same people don't refused to wear pants because it violates their freedom of express or first amendment rights.
These are the same idiots that gave us Trump. And yes, they are idiots.
I do like that masks have become a fashion statement for some. When I'm out and about, I'm always on the lookout for great and creative masks.
*Legitimate medical reason aside, but I have yet to hear of one put forth by an actual doctor.
Delores (not that one)
The masks have less medical but primary political reasons. In about two to three days you have more deaths worldwide due to strokes, cardiovascular diseases, cancer, sanctions, polluted water, natural deaths etc. than in all these virus months. Surprisingly we don't sacrifice our economies, personal rights and freedom for those.
I've never wearn a mask and never have been ill since this topic showed up. I do have a legitimate medical reason. I don't know a single person who died due to the virus and they also don't know others.
If you take a closer look at the data, how it got collected, the studies based on them etc. then there is more swindle and misinformation than a qualified scientifcal work. It serves multiple purposes.
It makes sense to take special care, like with any other Corona virus, if you're in contact with endangered people. Treat patients properly based on valid medical knowledge. Then you also better wear a proper mask, otherwise you could wear a fly screen as well. Desinfect your mask or single-use a mask only once in order to avoid to imperil yourself with bacteria infections.
I want a future like the ones, I read in so many SF books about and which inspired me to envision so many interesting things, fascism, iny any form, wasn't part of those worlds.

Ah, the good old daily dose of "scientific expertise" by some random dude - who is just claiming things without a hint of knowledge. Wouldn't be a problem if there weren't so many of them and and one these dudes would be the US President. Thats why the US has 130000 deaths and counting, and others don't.
But DFF doesn't personally know any one of these people that died, so it must be fake. /s
You're dragging this a tiny bit away.
Middle East is a big chapter on its own. No one should have invaded and destabilised Syria or any onther country (Iran, Iraq, Libya, Yemen etc.) at all but then again there was all this yummy oil, the installement and defense of the petro dollar, the needs of Saudi Arabia and Israel, then such conflicts are good for selling many weapons and a couple of other things. Looking at her history, Middle East would have been a joy with Clinton, just how peaceful and upright she and her falcons are. (Maybe Obama is the best, drone war king with a nobel peace prize, on the other side Kissinger got it before him already.)
I don't argue about the rest because this would end up in a long discussion.
Back to Trump: I didn't say he is a saint or a good president at all, obviously he isn't, but who was within the last decades?! None of them was working for the people. They all lied, ruined other peoples lifes (within and outside of the USA) for greed and power of the elite. Due to how the system works and looking at the candidates: Do you really think this is democracy? Don't you think this is a joke, no matter who'll win?
Trump against Biden, think about it. Is this the best this alleged democracy can come up with? The reasons for what's going wrong are behind the curtain and Corona is a big blender as well as a gate opener for truly abnormal stuff (just think of the long term agenda with (not properly tested) RNA-vaccination).
It boggles my mind, how otherwise intelligent people, are falling into such traps. I guess you need to be rather uneducated and lack quite some instinct, to still believe all these stories.
It's only fair if I appear like some random dude to you but due to my background and position I know what I'm talking about.
These masks are utalised as the new swastikas. Causing fear, desocialize ... enjoy yourself.
I am truly sorry to hear about your friend Ron.
Yea but you don't know that, its just the same old "conservative" rubbish; What would have been with Clinton in power? Would shmould! What did Trump achieve in Israel? We were close to the next intifada.
"Maybe Obama is the best, drone war king with a nobel peace prize"
You think Trump doesn't use drones? Every President now and in the future will use drones; did you complain about Bush using "smart" bombs? Not much more humane. Conservatives attacking Obama for a war that a conservative - one of their own tribe - has started is just so outlandish and idiotic; its so emblematic of a sick right wing culture that makes Trump their leader; a person who virtually has no moral compass, has never read a book in his life and thinks he can do and say whatever he likes because he has money.
"They all lied, ruined other peoples lifes (within and outside of the USA) for greed and power of the elite."
They're all the same, they're all the same. This is a very apolitical, passive stance, wrong on so many levels. And I also like the conclusion; "they all lie", so lets vote for the biggest liar of them all. Makes sense? Not at all, but that's why the US is now in steady decline, and god knows if it can recover. Not only from the Corona virus pandemic, which rages on without a faint sign of leadership on the horizon, but also the lack of investment into human development, lack of investment into schools and education, health and environment. Four lost years. I know, communistnazi Obama wanted to introduce healthcare for all, that monster. The only issue where Trump has excelled was the tax "reform", but that of course meant enriching himself and his friends. He shows a lot of energy when it comes to that, saving lives...not so much.
"Trump against Biden, think about it. Is this the best this alleged democracy can come up with?"
I agree with you on this one, this is sad and sign of a system that shows cracks. Anyway, I still prefer Biden over Trump by light years.
"It's only fair if I appear like some random dude to you but due to my background and position I know what I'm talking about."
Yea, I'm massively impressed, only I read the same lame-ass talking points from any old Fox News show.
"These masks are utalised as the new swastikas. Causing fear, desocialize ... enjoy yourself."
In many places they are used to protect oneself and therefore the community. But of course most of these "many places" don't have Trump as a President.
Where I live, masks became mandatory early on. People saw the nightmare that was unraveling in Italy and knew that our healthcare is much crappier, so virtually no one complained. After several weeks we had almost no new cases (until we reopened borders), avoided any major lock-down and now masks are mandatory only in shops and public transport.
I care about liberty quite a bit, but wearing a mask is a pretty straight forward way to decrease the probability to spread infection and is far less restrictive than lock-down and not as invasive with long-term impact as mass surveillance.
