The only thing that will save our jobs and our lives will be a vaccine, because there are far too many people who demand a likewise total solution by literally doing nothing: They see no benefit to wearing a mask or staying home, so they don’t want to do those things. They want a Personal Guarantee that their inconveniences and temporary loss of income nets them a Guarantee to some benefit they can’t fathom.

Lashing out at anyone that “tells them what to do” remains the aimless cry for help.

Maybe we should teach basic epidemiology in high school.

If only there was a way to let people know that the reasons people get sick are because they were exposed to something they could not see ...

It’s these people who, if they get sick, will be equally convinced it could not have been prevented because the risk could not be conclusively identified to their satisfaction.

How about we actually just teach critical thinking? Remember this: [en.wikipedia.org]
