It can seem silly, this wearing of masks and wearing of gloves when outside our immediate bubble. And at the very least, it takes an extra hour a day for the diligent cleaning and sanitizing to make sure my bubble remains safe and virus free. I chafe at these restrictions. I came of age in the 1960s, and I am of the Hippie Clan. (No, I wasn't at Woodstock, double darn...!)
Some feel it is a true infringement of their personal liberty, and many feel that way about any enforcement, even when proven to save lives and money, and do no real harm. Take, for instance, seat belts, which were fought against hard. Today, so much wrath is aimed against the thought of wearing masks, and sometimes the wrath is aimed at the people who are wearing them.
The person wearing the mask might just know something about their own state of health that you don't. Perhaps they are trying to protect the rest of us. This Coronavirus is sneaky.
In The Youth for Human Rights booklet you will see, "3. The Right to Life. We all have the right to life, and to live in freedom and safety." and, "29. We have a duty to other people, and we should protect their rights and freedoms." So, wear a mask to protect others when there is even a possibility that you are sick, and wear a mask if you are out where others may have germs, so you don't get sick. L. Ron Hubbard says, "If one does not survive, no joy and happiness are obtainable." www.thewaytohappiness.org @waytohappinesstampa
