By the way, do you think those ordering all this are going to subject themselves to what they are going to subject all you to? Maybe, it is up to you to make sure they do?

Now, I'm just gonna go ahead and say it is very difficult to watch footage of these protests... a mixture of masks and unmasked protesters yelling and hollering, standing nuts to butts for hours, often coughing and juicing all over the place from tear gas... and not realize that, if COVID is as bad ass as we're told, COVID isn't spreading like wildfire among the protesting crowd.
... Every single aspect of your life can be tracked, quantified, analyzed, and used to ensure absolute and total compliance with everything and anything those in power wish you to do. Nothing will be exempt ...

The "no shoes, no shirt, no service" was to keep dirty hippies like me out of places in the 60s/70s
The "mask required for safety" thing is more relatable to the push to make seatbelts a legal requirement.
edit: I was not a dirty hippie in the 60s/70s, but I am one now.

These laws, rules and restrictions have been about since time immemorial. Classic example, the ten commandments. Every law ever made in every country in the world is a form of control.
Just because you agree with the majority of them does not mean that everyone does.
In the UK it's mandatory that you wear a crash helmet on a motorcycle, a heavy fine if you don't. Now why is that? Wearing a helmet does nothing for you while riding and it makes no difference if you don't wear one. Buuutt, but the reason is if you have an accident the helmet will protect your head, no not for you to decide if you want to take the chance. Technically it's not about you, it's about how much you will cost the country with medical and other expenses.
By the way this is a good law but there are an awful lot more that work only for the PTB.

What's the diff between a mask and "no shirt, no shoes, no service"?
an argument that I like is that it would be akin to the goverment or state forcing you to wear a medical device. if its a health policy of for general welfare, its an entity forcing you to wear somehining medically that is attributed to your health.
pants, shoes not rally health

If the government attempted to control all transactions....I’m sure another type of currency or barter system would come along so that people could still buy, sell and trade off of the grid. You just need to figure out what item would be of value to almost everyone and stockpile that item.

Technology rules the world, second to money. Connectivity, speed, short attention spans, and the acceptance that this is somehow supposed to be normal human life is what separates us from history.

lets not forget.
the doctors, faccci, mayors, all have said, you cannot get it from rioting, burning down stores, looting, destroying cars, throwing projectiles at the police and innocent people, etc.
riot all you want, korona does not infect you!
but no gyms, no bars, no churches, those are forbidden fruit.
