punkfolkrocker BS: New news on the pandemic COVID-19 (1899* d) RE: BS: New news on the pandemic COVID-19 13 Aug 21


Masks may or may not be effective protection...???

But short of personal hermetically sealed full face bio-hazard helmets,
they are the only meagre defense most of us have readily available...

But even if they are a useless placebo,
they do serve a valuable purpose
as a visible social symbol that wearers respect their own life,
and the lives of neighbours and total strangers...!!!!!

I see maskless strangers on trains and in shops,
and am automatically wary of them.

On face value, they are in my estimation
demonstrating callous selfish contempt for me and all others
in their vicinity...

My opinion of them is probably true for the greater majority.
I reserve my apologies for the tiny minority who are unable to mask up for genuine health reasons.....

btw.. I absolutely detest the discomfort of mask wearing.
But it is my decision to endure it out of respect for other people..

.. and a tiny petty futile protest that a bloke who looks like me,
easily mistaken for an old right wing street thug,
will defiantly mask up in a small west country town of tory voting anti-mask right wing street thugs...
