It’s not an appeal to authority to cite experts. Read up philosophical fallacies.
If you show no empirical evidence, show no logical reasons or rational explanations... but cite experts. Yes, that is an appeal to authority! If you provide those things and then also list some experts that have came to the same conclusion. Then sure, that will add some weight to what your saying. But just citing “experts” as reasons why people should make life altering choices isn’t good enough. For every expert that I find to claim “A”. You can find two to claim “B” and vice versa.
Please link experts that claim not wearing a mask is ok.
The thread was about “traveling” not “wearing a mask”. But the data on masks is clear. If you wear the appropriate mask, in the appropriate way... then masks can help stop the spread of infectious diseases. The massive problem with that is that Americans don’t have access to proper masks and they don’t wear them properly. Most people actually do more harm than good to themself because of bad mask wearing habits. I don’t Know what that has to do with anything though. I was trying to make the point that, people should do their own research and make their own decision. Not just blindly obey because an “expert” said so. these “experts” are bureaucrats and have agendas!!! And rarely is that agenda the overall well being of Americans!!! 9 times out of 10 there is money or power at stake!!!
So no experts huh?
Actually the govt does. It’s called the social contract.
Yeah, we have enough rights to choose who we interact with and who we don’t.
If interacting with people is bad for public health shouldn’t the govt be able to limit it?
Red meat is bad for my cholesterol. If I have cholesterol issues, and I have government funded insurance through the VA, then maybe the government ought to just ban my meat intake. No. The government has absolutely no say so in who I associate with in my personal life. If I want to see my grandmother who’s depressed during the last years of her life, then I’ll go ahead and do it. That’s my discretion. Not anyone else’s. Serious question here, do you like being told what to do in your day to day life? I don’t know what your personality is outside of this website.

Is it changing or advancing?
Changing. Like the wind. East one day, then west another. Then a tornado to destroy the economy for political reasons.
Pretty sure wasn’t 180 degrees change. Science changes it’s mind, unlike religions or politicians.
Could be. It’s a bad virus. Thank you for not traveling. Or you could have infected dozens.
Who downvoted me? Fuck you allll!’nb!!!
I didn't... take it easy.
How do you get it? Half the country can’t be suicidal.
With a survival rate of 99% it's not a risk to most people. That's why I get it.
(Slaps face) that’s not a survival rate that’s just the beginning. It was 1% infected, now it’s like 2-3%
You have completely missed the point. Never mind. Also 97% isn't scary for most people.
i got your point. you keep disregarding the rising infection rates.
