Random Thoughts of the Day
For the record, if I tested positive for Covid-19, was directly exposed to someone positive, or showed symptoms, I would self-isolate. And if I absolutely had to go out, I would definitely wear a mask…and not one of the reusable paper towels with strings that a lot of people use, but a surgical-grade one. Since I’m healthy, have no symptoms, and have never tested positive, I feel I should be able to go about my day and enjoy my normal freedoms, counting on my immune system to protect me if I do become exposed. I’d have a different attitude on going out, if say, I was a 75-year-old with emphysema, as I’d be putting myself at high risk. Yes, I realize asymptomatic people can transmit, but it’s rare, and I will still wash my hands, socially distance where reasonable, and not cough on anyone. This behavior wouldn’t change even if there were no rules handed down by petty, fascist government dictators or gutless woke corporate CEO’s.
A funny thing happens in a free society where people live with the consequences of their own actions: they use common sense and take personal responsibility! If you’re honest with people and ask for compliance, you’re more likely to bring people together to develop solutions without fostering resentment. Instead, the ruling class has created a divided, hostile environment with ridiculous, arbitrary lockdowns and mandates that tear at the very fabric of a free society. In addition, we’ve been subjected to lies and exaggerations on a daily basis, not to mention the fact our leaders don’t follow their own rules. You may call me selfish for not following every stupid Covid dictate, but I think it’s far more selfish to ask EVERYONE to give up their freedom and quality of life just to ease the irrational fear of a small, loud, obnoxious minority.
