There's a very good chance that I don't care.
Why can't people comprehend that both things can be true. The virus is real. Our response to it is incorrect. We so easily jump into the manufactured false dichotomy of authoritarian measures or anti-vax nut jobs. It is abundantly clear that this isn't some viral superman and those in control (or seeking control) are just doing what they've always done. "Never let a good tragedy go to waste". When I was growing up the mode of indoctrination was The Cold War. 'Keep em scared because it keeps em in line'. We had mandatory nuke drills where we'd hide under our school desks. Apparently, 1/2" of particle board will save you from nuclear Armageddon just like a paper mask will save you from viral Armageddon. Its not about public safety. Its about control.
