If you don’t wear a mask because it you claim that it infringes your right to walk around unmasked in the midst of vulnerable people (or something similarly ridiculous), do you not stop at red lights when driving?

Do you not wear a seatbelt? And do you not buckle up your kids when driving?

Do you think it’s wrong to ban people who are drunk from driving because even a drunk has the right to injure himself and others?

Surely you have to accept – even if you don’t agree with them – that those impositions on total freedom are permissible because it protects so many vulnerable people – including you, in the case of seatbelt wearing – that the overall good way way way outweighs the slight damage that does to your “rights”.

As does wearing a mask in this still-uncontrolled pandemic.
