It used to be called mass hysteria, now it's called social consciousness.

It's the, "new paradigm," (pronounced, para-di-jum), fresh out of academia.

Wouldn't surprise me if, right now, some academic were writin' up a paper mirrorin' the view of your fictional doc.
You seem to be saying, here and elsewhere, that wearing a mask is not immoral and no one should have to wear a mask or there’s not a person who should be moral

How do you resolve this apparent conflict?
what conflict?

if you wanna mask up, mask up.

if you don't wanna mask up, don't.

neither has diddly to do with morality.

morality, as I understand it, comes into play when an outside agency demands you mask up, threatenin' penalty if you don't.

this threat is immoral: it attempts to negate the individual, to put a leash on him.

bluntly: volitionally maskin' (or not maskin' up) is amoral or morally neutral; compulsory maskin' up is attempted slavery.

No, No, Not at all. I don't lisp!

I meant the same as succinct, which has nothing to do with sucking.
