governor is jumping the gun, just wait for another month or so
2021-03-03 01:30

I mean the initial lockdown was supposed to be "a week or two" so saying wait "another month or so" feels like never on that timeline. I don't necessarily agree with the move but as someone living in a state with a decently strict lockdown I understand the desire to return to normalcy

and removing the mask mandate? do you agree with that braindead detail?
2021-03-03 01:36
16 replies
I think everyone should have personal freedom and I don't believe that anyone should be able to mandate what you have to do. I think many people would still choose to wear a mask and those who do not know the potential consequences they face. My main concern is that governments (both local and national) are mandating medical safety protocol when I believe that these decisions should be made by individuals not by a collective political group

The point is that masks don't just help you, they help those around you. I agree that the govt generally shouldn't tell people what to wear, but when a person's actions harm another person the government needs to act.

Right so the whole issue is that this creates a dangerous precedent of stripping away personal freedoms whenever the government perceives something to be a threat. Handing the government power of small medical decisions like whether or not you wear a mask and whether or not you gather with other people is just a gateway to other mandates the government can now attempt to make using the mask mandate as a precedent. Masks of course help more than just yourself, but consider it in a different light: Birth control helps a woman not get pregnant without wanting to, but also helps a man not get a woman pregnant if he does not want to be a father. Although birth control does not only help the woman, but also the man, should ever woman be forced onto birth control just because a man wants to not get her pregnant? And in the same sense, should every person be required to wear a cloth on their face because some people are concerned about going out in public without one or around those not on it? Like a mask, birth control helps serves the purpose of protecting both the man and the woman from the burdens of parenthood, but just because one person wants protection does not mean you should strip the power to choose from the other person simply to provide it. Whether or not you think that is a good analogy (and to be fair I don't really even think it's all that great of an analogy) the point is still that the bigger concern here is the dangerous precedent being set of seeing a perceived threat and then forcing the people to bend to the will of the government and disregarding their personal freedoms.

Two problems, one is that I just don't think that forcing people to wear an article of clothing during a deadly pandemic will lead to an authoritarian regime tbf this isn't really something that can be argued just a difference of opinion. I would just say almost all 1st world countries have had mask mandates, none of those have suddenly slid into authoritarianism. The analogy doesn't work here. In the analogy, if someone didn't want to have unprotected sex they could just not have sex (no serious consequences) in real life immunocompromised people can't just not be able to do ANYTHING because some red-neck dipshit won't wear a mask. See the difference?

it is pretty clear that some rights can be curtailed for the public good. here's the common example with regards to free speech: it shouldn't be legal to falsely yell "fire" in a crowded theatre because it could cause a stampede that kills people. the same thing applies to bodily autonomy(which i don't think is even codified as a right in the us constitution). the government can force you to wear a seatbelt, schools can mandate dress codes, the government can force you not to smoke in public areas, etc. saying that you have to wear a mask in public spaces, or giving businesses the choice not to serve people who don't wear masks, doesn't threaten human rights any more than those things do. making people wear masks is reasonable and in the public interest, and not oppressive or arbitrary.

I mean the issue is that kids can go to schools without dress codes, it's stupid that you have to wear a seatbelt when you're driving especially because it doesn't really affect anyone else and there should be places that r non smoking and smoking imo and people should have the ability to choose where they want to be ... also people have the right to wear gas masks and shit if they really concerned also there could easily be mask and no mask stores

thats so fucking stupid and just flat out wrong... no country "suddenly" just slides into authoritarianism its usually gradual ... also the new re-entry into Canada laws are literal examples of authoritarianism... I'd really like to go play poker in Vegas right now with my friend who recently just turned 21... the 2k quarantine hotel fee makes the trip way too expensive for me and not worth it also in my opinion it breaks 2 parts of the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms Mobility of citizens 6. (1) Every citizen of Canada has the right to enter, remain in and leave Canada. Detention or imprisonment 9. Everyone has the right not to be arbitrarily detained or imprisoned. so now with this precedent and arbitrary "cost" can be used to control who can and cannot leave or re enter to country effectively which could potentially negatively affect peoples lives... also staying at a quarantine facility is basically saying "you might break the law so we have to detain you so we can monitor you and you aren't free to leave without consequences..." think about how fucked that is
2021-03-03 09:47
Just like how businesses have the right to refuse service to customers that don't follow house rules. It's been roughly a year and we are still having to remind people why they have to wear a mask The people that use the argument that the government is using the whole "mAh RiGhTs ArE bEiNg TaKeN aWaY" are the same people who would be bitching about how the government didn't do enough if COVID numbers really went out of control

If you would prefer that the government just decides what you can and can't do then by all means seek that out. That's not what I want and I think the majority of people who think that's what they want don't actually want it once they realize what it truly means to not have personal freedoms. I think personal freedoms are important and if you think trying to uphold those personal freedoms is "acting like a clown" then I just have to say good luck to you and move on.

Well I mean, depends on what you mean by way more heavy. There was never an enforced mask mandate in Cali, the most that really happened was restrictions on dining and bars. California definitely signaled that they cared more than Texas did, but the actions taken weren't too different.

look up deadliest cities highest overall violent crimes in decreasing order are: New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, Houston, Philadelphia, Memphis, Detroit, Dallas, Phoenix, and Baltimore. Based on the number of crimes per 10,000 residents, the top ten cities are Memphis (Tenn.), St. Louis, Detroit, Baltimore, Springfield, Little Rock., Stockton (Calif.), Cleveland, St. Bernardino, and Oakland (Calif.). All the mayors of the cities with the highest overall violent crimes are Democrats. The cities with the most violent crime per capita have Democrat mayors except Springfield, which has an independent mayor.

This isn't as bad as liberals make it out to be, Florida has also been largely open having operated schools and restaurants in some capacity without regulations of a mask mandate, and they are in the middle of the rankings alongside California with lockdowns.
2021-03-03 18:37
when the virus isn't a threat to the common public, then there shouldn't be made so huge measures to ensure a lockdown. put your resources towards creating reliable and safe ways to obtain food and overall needs for elders and those who'll be more exposed to the effects of the virus - due to medical reasons.
2021-03-03 20:03
