It is generally your choice to wear a mask. but it's not just your body and that's why it's not your choice.
Also screw the hype, the CDC and WHO are doing their best to make reliable estimates on the best responses with detailed and nonpartisan data. I mean, the simplest occams razor explanation is this: There's a massive highly contagious natural virus infecting people throughout the world, and it's new and nobody is immune and thousands are dying. Then you have scientists devoted to studying disease and limiting it's spread saying "wear masks, stay apart, wash your hands and we can reduce the rate to match hospital capacity" and we did that and it flattened the curve and where we stopped doing that it tragically fired off through the roof
that's it. thats all that makes obvious sense.
That the doctors and researchers would be intentionally misleading people is whacky conspiracy shit and doesnt make sense, whats the point, do you know any researchers? I do, they're people doing a job which is to learn and educate people about diseases, theres no incentive for dishonesty - and who would coordinate that level of dishonesty - sorry, it isnt real.
that the response is overblown in order to discredit our president is wildly narcissistic but I'm sorry carly simon didnt write that song about you.
The idea that the media is willfully exploiting and sensationalizing this to get views and clicks, yea totally. but in that case just dont rely on sensationalized sources...
And the idea that somehow they made up the mask thing to enforce tyranny is fucking batshit nuts. That's some psycho paranoid delusional shit that falls apart real quickly with any scrutiny - and further if your'e concerned about authoritrian tyranny and focused on whats happening with MASKS right now and not our paramilitary response to protests for equal justice I'm pretty sure your motivation comes from poilitcal propagandists and not a very well vetted logical standpoint...
