    I mean come on bro. It doesn't restrict your breathing, it doesn't do anything. Stop thinking you are smarter than guys who have actually researched for years, for looking at google and facebook. 

    No it doesn't violate your rights. You are the literal people spreading the pandemic. Why does the US have so many more cases than other countries? Because people dont wear masks.

    Well, I'd say more people are on board with it 'now, but I think there were a number of mixed messages early on.
    People who claimed wearing a mask would 'prevent you from becoming infected, when the truth is it 'helps prevents the infected from infecting others.
    And even 'after that misunderstanding was cleared up, some people figured that if they weren't sick, why bother wearing a mask to protect others from nothing,
    'Then information came out arguing that some people can be carriers but not sick.

    Leadership in America was also on the backfoot in leading by example, and even when the Democrats got on board with it, the 'way they did it, seemed more like political grandstanding and sneaking politics in a time of crisis, than an actual attempt to work with and convince their political counterparts.

    Nor have the people who go about the argument to wear masks in a confrontational manner helped, throwing their weight around, jamming their fingers into people's chests and saying OBEY.

    I wear a mask in public.
    I think other people 'should wear masks,
    I think that the law supports it,
    Not sure I think people not on board yet are Absolute Morons, maybe just need to be convinced in the right manner, and need our government leading correctly.

    I wouldn't say it's the 'only reason Americas done worse,  us being slow on the uptake hasn't helped.
    Not like it hasn't happened before,

    And I can't say I'm 'fully convinced that masks help much, but I'm convinced most of society acts like they think that.
    And I don't have any breathing condition, so, eh.

    Well actually no. I am typing this from one enclosed shelter ran by a capitalist community, and there ain't no clothe above my lips. The fact it is not very big of an' chance for virus to catch several hundreds of meters off the ground, and the fact I have my windows and doors shut, it would make no sense to put on a mask indoors.

    But yes, wearing not a mask outside, where environment of contact will be prone to make you sick is real, would make you ignorant of the outdoor problems.

    It truly depends. There were next to no cases in my county for a long time. No one wore masks. Only recently have cases been mounting. Now, out of courtesy I am more willing to wear a mask when I'm out.  (Also, I agree that it's not unconstitutional to enforce masks in a crisis situation. It's like arguing that the government cannot crack down on public nudity)

    I completely agree.  People wear seat belts, that only save themselves, and don't scream about their rights being violated.   Wearing masks, saves others as well.  No it is not 100%, but even a little is better than nothing.  Stores also say, "No shirt. No shoes. No Service."  People don't complain about their right to go shirtless either.  I realize a store is not the government.  But we seem to have lost the ability to pull together in this pandemic.  It took forever for some people to even stop calling it a "hoax". 

    Have we really become so stupid as a country, that we will take the word of a petty, childish, faux-politician over the doctors, scientists and experts that have spent their lives specializing in their fields?  Do we really just believe the loudest voice in the room, no matter how petulant, self-serving or misleading?

    I'm new here.  So if I'm just venting, I apologize.  But damn it feels good to get it out sometimes.

    Sadly, I think the answer is yes to both questions.

    I personally agree. We should all wear masks no matter what, and that is on protecting people.

    The Conservative argument is that it should be businesses who decide if you should wear a mask inside their store, and the not the federal govt. requiring you to make a mask. That's their argument.

    I disagree with the "typical conservative" because I am not, I am a free thinking, non partisan person. Wearing mask is beneficial, unless you are swimming or something.

    Also, I think studies are coming in showing that being outside is more beneficial because the air dissolves around it. Pretty interesting. Still wear a mask.

    Not really. As a whole. There are just a group of faux-liberals who support chaos and anarchy over any form of government that would rather this country dead than this way. Well, my answer is no and it should always be no. If they really do so then there is really zero chance to convince them because they might think I am a brainwashed slave. Y'know, truisms aren't truisms when the other side is out of their brains.

    There is the normal libertarian who does whatever he thinks is right for him and <maybe> for the nation if it is really beneficial, and there are the extreme libertarian leftists that would shout at you for being a misogynist racist sexist homophobic *slur* *slur* *slur* just because you trusted anything rational and proven written by anyone who is remotely related to the government.

    Oh yeah, like Martin Luther King.  Boy did he get a lot of flack ---flak used to shoot down WW2 bombers etc---   for his actions. 

    Would Martin wear the mask? What would he say about masks today? 

    Lets see who else took a lot of flack for their actions of does whatever they think is correct for self, family and nation?

    Ghandi?  And the list goes on and on and on.......

    I’m concern trolling. 

    I’ll be more direct. When you say you live in an inclosed capitalist community, it just sounds like you’re insecure. 
    What do you mean exactly by Inclosed capitalist community?

    I don’t mind people making hypothetical arguments, it’s just that you don’t have to lie about yourself to do so.

    Wearing a mask to go into a restaurant to be seated and then taking it off to eat  is the same as a pissing section in a swimming pool

    One could argue, that such action encourages social consciousness about the issue, and ideally their follow through of obeying mask laws.
    And really if someone's going to piss in the pool, I'd rather they do it a far distance from me, rather than right next to me in the water, as I start wondering why is the water warming up.

    The study of societies and the relationships, is a science.

    Less tongue in cheek though, if a mask helps prevent someone from breathing so many droplets into the air, surroundings, and people on their way to the table,
    Seems to me it could be argued scientifically to 'help prevent the spread of disease.

    Yes I would like to see that scientific evidence that shows wearing a mask and walking 20  feet in the same room and taking it off reduces or prevents the spread of a virus.

    Eh, the existence of some people talking like Looney Tunes, Sylvester, moments face to face with the staff, or nearby other customers in a hallway, where social distancing might be broken. Seems relevant to me.
