When cowering in fear and denigrating those who aren't is the New Normal, we have a very serious problem going on. Other than refusing to acquiesce, and literally showing people via continuing to live life that it's not an inherent Instant Death to do so, I'm not sure how to get through to people. You cannot make someone open their eyes and ears, they will only turn into massive hypocrites and wail about being disrespected & forced, etc.

I thought that it was all one big liberal hoax until I caught the bloody thing from one too many trips to Wetherspoons. I was very sick, could barely breathe and being a lone divorcee was unable to take care of myself. Fortunately, I was able to fly to the United States where I convalesced with my sister before deteriorating and ultimately
landing myself in hospital. I'm lucky to be alive. Everyday I thank God and President Trump of course for allowing me to fly to be with my sister and get the best treatment in the world.
Congrats, you drew that Get Sick short straw. SOMEONE has to, for any illness. Now you know what it's like for the folks who draw that straw for the flu every year, and for regular colds --yes, regular non-covid colds even do that to people and you don't have to be immune-compromised or a geriatric invalid in the home to strike that stretch of bad luck, either. I think this is what people flat refuse to open their brains up to try to understand, it doesn't match their bias in any manner. Therefore, "ZOMG, it really was the microscopic devil!" takes over where common sense should have said, "Well #, my luck really sucked this time, didn't it?"

I think the real choice is Fake Safety or Fake Freedom, just sayin'....
Seems to me that there are a lot of people who have no problem with masks but think lockdowns are wrong.
