SnowshoeThompsonExample 3 Continue to attack opposition with any unrelated topic at hand that you believe bothers the individual. Become more personal with attacks but emphasize how unbiased you are and how you are nothing but a victim in the scheme of things. Relate the individual as not doing the right thing but again emphasize how not at fault you are and point blame accordingly. Cite “officials” as justification to act the way you do.

Dude I think you're really reaching at this point.
You have been openly discussing your political allegiance and ideas around partisanship surrounding the virus literally on this page - I thought it was appropriate to bring in a topic that is quite obviously on your radar. Everyone in the world knows Trump talks down to people. You didn't bother to refute the irony - you just tried to cover it up with another attack of my character. See how we're going in circles? You've got nothing.
Truly I'm not the victim. There is a closed border between me and the victims in discussion. I am not particularly biased as I have nothing to gain from either "side." I simply do not hold a specific belief which you think is an inherent right, and which nobody can seem to logically defend in the context of a pandemic that requires cooperation and tests togetherness. And seeing needless suffering while an ultimatum self-over-others attitude is still kicking is just a bummer to watch.
Honestly I still would love to hear your logical process of reconciling the tangible loss of human life to avoid making some temporary compromises. Do you believe you will not get your freedom back? Do you distrust your government that deeply? Does giving up something to potentially benefit someone else really just not seem worth it? Losses are necessary, just not for me? My body, my choice? Your body, my choice? Is it only because someone with power is asking you to do it and you'd prefer to arrive at your own conclusion? Help us out here.
Pretty sure all kids are taught how to care for each other in preschool, but the fixation on "liberty" as you understand it is simply not a thing in most developed nations around the world. We elect our governments and the sense is that they generally take care of us. The rest of it we take care of each other. The deep-seeded distrust is a distinctly American thing and I truly don't understand it.
I trust my "officials" because they were instrumental in flattening the curve in BC and dropping cases and deaths to nearly zero in the densest city in Canada. They offered us trust and never forced closure of most businesses. In exchange we did our part. Less people have been stuck outside a care home or hospital while their grandparents (or parents) died, not able to pay them a final visit. That was a team effort. Dunno if any of you guys do this but at 7pm we all step outside and cheer for our health care professionals. Like thousands of people every day. There's an overwhelming sense of togetherness and yeah dude, I'm proud of it.
If we hadn't contained it we'd have experienced so much more tragedy by now and we'd still be right here. A marathon away from the end, wishing it were winter again so that we could stop stressing and just go ski as much as we want, as hard as we want, and wherever we want.
No idea why I decided that your condescending post was worth diving back into this over, but hey. Merry Christmas.
