It seems to me that if you actually had a position to present and/or defend, you would have done so. But, alas, you set up what you seem to think is
a "gotcha" question, and fail to do what you lamented in your post that others could not. I have clearly defined and explained what is a "right" and
what is a "responsibility." You have failed to do either. You have not explained in any way how this "selfishness" harms you. Nor you have you
offered any explanation/justification for the harm you would cause others resulting from your demands for protection in the name of rights.
I would also suggest that you are shortsighted, and do not realize the longterm harm that you are also doing yourself. The simple truth is that you
will catch CoVid sooner or later, one way or another -- unless something else kills you first. These lockdowns bought some time, and some wisdom
borne of experience. The stay-at-home orders were never meant to stop
the spread, only to slow
the spread. We've done that. And it's
time to let nature
take its course. Herd immunity is our friend, and the only way to ensure herd immunity is to let people contract and
recover from the virus. This will not only weaken the virus, it will reduce viral load and therefore severity of symptoms for those who do become
And your chances will be better than ever because
of those who accept the risks, become infected, and recover. They are also valuable guinea
pigs in terms of medical knowledge -- how it presents, how it progresses, when and how complications develop, risk factors for adverse outcomes, etc.
Healthcare providers have a much better understanding how to properly treat CoVid's symptoms, and how NOT to treat CoVid symptoms. Knowledge that
they could not and would not have if not for those who have experienced CoVid. Knowledge that benefits everyone. We have learned that Vitamin D
deficiency leads to adverse outcomes in more severe symptoms and complications, giving everyone a chance to boost their Vitamin D levels. Likewise
for Vitamin C. This is all good. For YOU!
