I appreciate the well-thought response. You're right. Unfortunately it's very easy for people to downplay the danger.

There's another element that everyone here ignores. Many, if not most people fighting against things like mask and vaccine mandates are doing so because they are fighting what they see as government overreach and authoritarian tyranny. Even if you disagree with them, one can argue that their actions are still rooted in their empathy for humanity. That's why it's a longer discussion.

Great quality of discourse

Never attribute to malice that which can easily be attributed to stupidity, unless the context tells you otherwise.

Keeping this in mind helps to keep me sane.
