The fuss over masks

What all the fuss is about wearing a mask is hard to figure out. Arguments against it are being blared all over social media, pretty much constantly. Apparently it’s a hill worth dying on for some libertarian types, who see the mask issue as another sign of ‘big government’ stealing their freedoms.

It sure doesn’t look like that from here. If it makes sense to wear a mask, we’ll do it. If somebody tells us we can’t enter a place without one, we’ll do it, and gladly, if we need to go in there. If we aren’t willing, and don’t have to, we won’t. Seems simple enough. The freedom to infect or be infected is not one we are willing to make a fuss about. That just seems like common sense.
