    Dehumanizing others wins the ratings, I agree.
    The polarization of America by FOX and its competitors is obvious here at the BB and across the nation.

    Well, you didn’t agree with me because I never stated dehumanizing others wins the ratings.

    Let’s not derail this thread, ok

    peace to you

    I think the Japanese have been wearing masks for decades when they are sick, and they are much healthier as a nation than the US is. I think not wearing a mask because of fierce independence is more important to you than your neighbors well being goes directly against God's command to treat your neighbor as yourself.

    What is the source for your statement that the Japanese are “much healthier as a nation than the US?

    What is the source for your statement that “the Japanese have being wearing masks for decades”?

    What % of the Japanese population has been “wearing masks for decades”?

    What is the source of your statement linking a healthier Japanese nation to widespread “wearing of masks for decades”?

    peace to you

    I have no source. Consider me to be like The Daily Wire.

    Try to answer without the virtue-signaling, if you can.

    Why would the New England Journal of Medicine say that masks in public do little if anything to impede viral spread, if they did indeed promote health?

    these worthless masks are more of a Chinese thing, you'd think the article written on that vaxorama site would have pointed that out, gee, wonder why it didn't?

    Masks are a symbol of submission to authority to me - also, now they're a good indicator of who to avoid, particulary ones wearing them on an isolated road or while alone in a car. Yes, they are dehumanizing but it makes everybody ugly, so there's the conformity/collectivism angle communists so love.

    The thing I rejoice in is that the radical left and radical right both tell me how I am a conservative or a liberal. When that happens I know that I am walking a road of grace.
    So Aaron, thank you.

    A perfect example of extreme individualism that is entirely non-biblical.
