Some people refuse to wear a mask to protect against covid.
I heard a university prof who said some people just don’t want to be told what to do. Libertarian individualism. Libertarians are actually very selfish. According to libertarians the only thing that matters in this world is my individual rights, me for me, the hell with the greater good. They don’t seem to understand that if the world was modeled like they want, it would be utter chaos. You would have to pack up your AK-47 to go grocery shopping.
They don’t want to wear protective masks that not only protect them, but protect innocent individuals that come near them. But that’s the greater good, they don’t care about those innocent individuals, if they die it has nothing to do with them. Yet these anti-maskers obey traffic regulations, tax rules (but that must piss em off to no end) and other societal norms like get in line at the doughnut shop.
Bottom line, it is all about them. I should be free to do whatever I want as long as I don’t hurt anyone. Irony is, not wearing a mask may hurt someone.
