    'A Misbegotten, Warped Freedom Obsession Is Killing Us': Video of Trumpian Anti-Mask Jerks Goes Viral

    "Freedom is wasted on people who think coughing on people is freedom."

    Author Anand Giridharadas on Friday shared on social media what he called an "end-of-empire" video featuring a compilation of Americans refusing to wear face masks in public places, purposefully coughing on others, and claiming their "freedom" is being trampled by public health guidance urging social distancing during the Covid-19 pandemic.
    "A misbegotten, warped freedom obsession is killing us," Giridharadas tweeted.
    In the video, one woman curses at and tries to hit a store employee after being refused entry for not wearing a face mask; another screams at workers and reaches over a plastic barricade to assault them; a man tells a Costco employee he doesn't have to wear a mask because he "woke up in a free country," and one woman tells a grocery store manager that she can't wear a mask due to a medical condition and that she can't use a delivery service because she wants to buy "private" items.
    Several people also cough on and spit at essential employees.

    Saw some of these scenes on the news last night. Australia never had compulsory mask wearing, and I have only seen about 1/2 a dozen people wearing them in the last couple of months. Yet we seem to have done better than most countries, my state in particular. Restrictions have eased considerably and we are gradually returning to 'normal'. When you look at what various countries have done, it's difficult to work out why some overcame the virus faster than others.

    I'm always disheartened at displays of man's inhumanity to man--in the name of freedom no less. Store employees should never be the targets of customers' displeasure with COVID restrictions. These poor people don't make the rules; they're just doing what their employers have--or local lawmakers--have directed.
