Your Right to Not Mask

Your right to mask or not mask extends to the point that it interferes with another’s right. In this case other people’s right to not get Covid-19.

Society has always guaranteed the rights of both parties.

It is the law that you must wear a seat belt both to protect you, your passengers and other drivers on the road.

You must get a license to drive to protect others on the road from inexperienced or bad drivers.

It is against the law to smoke in restaurants and public buildings because cigarette smoke harms both the smoker and the non-smoker.

Stop signs, speed limits and traffic lights are to protect the rights of you and others on the highway from injury from an accident.

Society has laws to protect society from people who are concerned only with their personal wants.

If people were considerate of the rights of others, laws would not be necessary to govern others behavior.

Even the pilgrims recognized that some people are so centered on themselve that there must be laws to protect and guarantee the safety of society. Hence they had to sign the Mayflower Compact before they exited the boat.

Your right to not mask extends to the point where it exposes others to Covid-19. If you don’t go out into society you most certainly have the right and freedom to not wear a mask.

I would ask that if you do not wear a mask, you refrain from seeking medical attention. You see, I shouldn’t need to pay for an illness that you brought upon yourself. You have the right to drive into a brick wall, but I should not have to pay for your decision. If you destroy your liver from drinking, I should not have to pay for your treatment. If you choose to overeat, I should not have to pay for your medical bills. Your bad decisions ultimately end up costing the rest of us increases in insurance and hospital costs.

THINK OF OTHERS, NOT JUST YOURSELF, AND THE LIFE YOU SAVE JUST MIGHT BE YOUR OWN.
