Masks or no masks, he's right about one thing. The general populous is.. motivated by fear and self-absorption. However that was true LONG LONG before Covid and said masks came around and will be true long after it ceases being the news of the month. I very much question the honesty of the media and people "handling" the numbers and treatments of the virus.. but I do wear the mask at work because, for now, it does still seem to be the right thing to do.
It is one of those ironic things to see, historically our species produces the fiercest warriors, the bravest first-responders and medical care givers, strongest home makers, and physical laborers, but at the same time the most disgusting.. sniveling cowards, hypocrites, meaningless "celebrities," and general sycophants that can ever turn your stomach.
