think that openly proclaiming that they're stockpiling ammo in the basement is a big middlefinger to the system.
You think the risk of contaminating yourself or others is a rational justification for wearing a mask.
You don't know what I think. You're making assumptions here.
You've weighed the risks, and you've taken action. Nothing wrong with that until you start dictating the outcome of risk analysis for everyone else.
I'm not a big fan of the mask either, but because I respect others and respect the crisis we're in, I will wear it when I'm prompted. It's really not a big deal.
So, is it the principle of it? Why is it so important?
Likewise, others can do an analysis of the risk of violence being done to them by others while a government system ostensibly established to protect them ignores the dangers to citizens while protecting only themselves and their buildings. These people can make a rational decision to take action to protect themselves. What's ethically wrong with self defense?
I disagree with it being rational. Convince me otherwise.
