    .....”These are the ones in our society who are advocating hard for the rest of us to suffer so that they might live. They impose lockdown orders, tell us to cancel our holidays, to stay home, to turn to technology for literally everything that we used to do together—work, education, social life, entertainment.

    If they had any sense of justice or sacrifice themselves, they would isolate themselves for their own safety, and let the rest of us live in peace. Every new round of coronavirus cases (neé deaths) is a new reason for elected leaders of my parents' generation to issue new, restrictive orders that limit our ability to work, socialize, or educate our children.

    The global Influenza A pandemic in 1968 was virtually ignored by the boomers, so much so that they held a massive music festival in Woodstock, New York, with absolutely no concern for their own health, or anyone else's. Now they have shut down the world to keep themselves safe.

    And while they tell us it is for our own good, it's not even working”....

    This opinion article author got it exactly right on here. Those advocating shutdowns and mask mandates are truly cruel and selfish beings. We need to let families and children live their lives and we need to keep the economy going.

    The only reason I even bother to wear a mask is because it looks cute on me.

    I’m not moving anytime soon. I live in a red area of California and we don’t obey Newscum.

    Yea right, you and Louisiana were singing a different tune, till i convinced you guys it was the right thing to do.
    Vanity is as good a reason to do the right thing as any, so what ever.

    I think their cruelty and selfishness is a secondary attendant factor, not a primary motivator. Their pent up desire for absolutism got a actual tasting and they really like it, and they want more. So they are pushing their dictatorship drive. Cruelty and selfishness is just an inherent trait of dictators.

    What? You've never convinced me of anything. Did you just make this up?

    No one is being forced to be locked down in their home. No one was forced to "cancel Thanksgiving". That is a figment of your wild imagination.

    If I'm not able to reasonable socially distance (which is almost never) or if the store owner asks, then I do. Otherwise, no.

    There wouldn't be a need for lock downs if everyone wore their masks and did the other things to keep them and theirs healthy. The real selfishness is the jerks who refuse to limit covid out of a false sense of independence.

    I dont get anxiety. But if you dont wear one, well we could use funds to support another stimulus. I dont mind your paycheck being fined.
