people aren't used to being told what to do. my uncle was born in a quarantine camp. you can bet if you had yellow fever you'd be sent there till it was gone.
tb you were sent to a sanatorium even when I was young. I knew people who had been. they were sent away and their families were quarantined for a period of time. their clothes etc were burned.
we know more about tb now and how it is transmitted
people are doing the same thing with corona they did with aids
before we knew aids was only blood borne, there was this politically correct bull sht. dentists who didn't want to treat aids infected were ostracized, I remember. yet we should have quarantined every one of those muther ruckers till more was known.

this is not about politics, it's about safety.
safety of yourself and others.
We know quarantine of "the sick" works.
Quarantine of the healthy has never been tried or tested.
(much less legally vetted)
Mask wearing by everyone is AT BEST questionable and at worse counter productive.

the Mandates are a political moves to calm FEARS not well established MEDICAL moves to deal with the disease spread.
It's the TSA of medical procedures.
TSA known BS, security THEATER to give the appearance of "action".
Mandatory Lockdowns and Mask is Medical THEATER as well.

wearing a mask is not a quarantine. yes I don't advocate quarantining the healthy. your propensity for going down rabbit holes is working overtime.
whoa.
yes wearing masks and or distancing keeps us from getting a bunch of things including covid-19.

If you don't have it, you can't share it. So mandating that everyone must wear a mask, is a form of quarantining the healthy.

As to your signature, Any government that does not exist to promote justice is just a bunch of thieves." is missing a very important word.

Equal.

Perhaps you've been hearing that word lately. It's important.

You have not one shred of evidence to back that claim.

general public "Lockdowns" are, in fact, quarantining the healthy.
there's no rabbit hole here. Officials still have that on the table or have them in place.

And concerning mask
The World Health Organization published a document on June 8, 2020 which states:
"the widespread use of masks by healthy people in the community setting is not yet supported by high quality or direct scientific evidence and there are potential benefits and harms to consider (see below)...the use of a mask alone is insufficient to provide an adequate level of protection".
https://apps.who.int/iris/bitstream/...2020.4-eng.pdf
https://www.who.int/emergencies/dise...w-to-use-masks

Report from the CEBM
"The Centre for Evidence-Based Medicine"
which "develops, promotes and disseminates better evidence for healthcare."
Connected with the University of Oxford
Masking lack of evidence with politics
https://www.cebm.net/covid-19/maskin...with-politics/

add to that that many Drs say the reduction of oxygen by prolonged mask wearing along with the extra CO2 intake and the collection of viral and bacterial material can make health worse overall.

At best mask wearing is questionable... at worse, counter productive.
