Problem is Americans don't like being told what to do.

Maybe if this was one of them Sci-Fi viruses where the victim falls over in the street and screams and melts.  But these victims disappear in to a hospital/mass grave.  There's no real reason to worry about it.   Where's Fred?  Oh, he got the C?  Meh.  Bad luck for him.  At least I gots mah freedums!

It is a complete lack of understanding of the rights granted in our constitution. We don't have nearly the freedom some people seem to think we do, even in comparison to many other countries. Basically - We bought into our own propaganda about "Land of the Free" wholly and completely.

On a side note something that really, REALLY irks me about this whole situation. The conservative side of the divide is always so extremely pro-military, but thanks to their inability to follow a simple instruction (wear the damn mask) they've shown the entire world exactly how to attack the US. We are absolutely incapable of handling a manufactured pandemic if some nation was going to leverage that. We also can be very, very easily divided by absurd levels of propaganda. So as long as you have the talking point's ready to divide us and seeded in our media weeks or months in advance, we'll never be able to respond to a global catastrophe again. Countries now know exactly how susceptible our populace is to propaganda if framed correctly. This basically undermines the mission of the military. Way to go guys.

It isn't so much that it's human beings.  That it's human beings given license to be completely selfish and arrogant because Donald John Trump acts that way.

Jokes on you Health officials, telling me to work from home and never set foot in the office again is an introverts dream.  I only wear a shirt and pants if I go to get groceries.  My wardrobe since the 16th of March has been monogramed bathrobes.

wantingout: as in 'Shut up and take your decrees, Americans!'


If the decrees are coming from scientists--you know, the people who actually know things and have evidence--maybe they should.

Scientists: "You should wear masks and not hang out in bars."
Dumb-dumbs: "YER NOT SO SMART, AH DOESN'T HEV TO DO WHUT YOU SAYZ."

Some 2000-year-old book written by cattle-sacrificing primitives: "God sacrificed himself to himself in order to change a rule he made up, now here are a bunch of random rules for you to follow."
Dumb-dumbs: "OMG, PLZ TELL ME MORE, MASTER."

You're absolutely right.  No American ever acted like that before Trump got elected.

It's not that an American ever acted that way beforehand, it's that Trump gave them the license to unapologetically act like that without consequences.

9/11/01: We all watched in horror the videos on loop of the planes crashing into the WTC and we all lost our shiat seeing 3,000+ people die in a very short time.

America now has the death equivalent of a 9/11 every, what...40 hours? The difference is we aren't seeing the ICU wards filled with drowning people and a result we don't experience visceral reactions like we did in 2001. It's not that I want to witness any of this myself, but if we as a nation *did* see what this virus is capable of then maybe we'd have more people wearing masks, social distancing and knocking off the moronic 'fear-mongering' takes.

This.

Everyone felt attacked on 9/11.  There was a certain unity in that.

With Covid-19 way more people are dying, but it's much easier and more convenient to stick your head in the sand.  Particularly if you don't know anyone who was affected.

To be honest, I think a show like Live PD, but that follows nurses on Covid wards instead of police would be helpful.  Yeah, it's not pretty.  But maybe shocking people into action is what is needed.

Citing 'aggressive, rapid' community spread, the White House coronavirus task force is urging more mask use and social distancing

Serious question... how do Trump supporters reconcile his behaviors with this message from his task force? How can you respect a leader who doesn't even sync up with the people who report directly to him?

I've changed my behavior, and have since March. I haven't been out in public or left my house except to have groceries dropped in my trunk. I haven't gone to a parade or a bar or a restaurant, fark, I haven't had takeout. But I'm tired. I'm really tired. And so when officials come out and scold me along with the rest of the public that doesn't give a shiat about how we all need to make sacrifices and pitch in for the greater good, it's hard for me not to say "fark you. Talk to the other people first."

Every year swimming pools kill more people than 9/11, mostly children at that, nobody makes the comparison.

Heart disease has been like a 9/11 every 40 hours for seventy f*cking years. Nobody says "heart disease is like a George Floyd every 36 seconds in America."

Most deaths are tragic, but there are certainly qualitative differences based on circumstances. If the cops hadn't been called and George Floyd would have quietly succumbed to the high level of fentanyl in his system, there would be exactly zero murals of his face right now.  Nobody would care at all. The fact is (and this is a hard thing to swallow, but it's a scientific reality) the great majority of COVID deaths are elderly people in fragile health that were not likely long for this world in the best case scenario who succumb to a disease.  Still tragic, but not in the same way as healthy people being brutally murdered by a hateful ideology.
