Politicians not mandating mask wearing really isn't stupid.

No, it’s not. It’s tragically ignorant.

They know if they mandate them they're gonna pizz a lot of people off, which could lead to undesirable consequences both politically and in terms of compliance on other things.

Here are some of the things people said they would never do, and do: wearing seatbelts. Taking off their shoes to pass through airport security. Stop smoking on airplanes and restaurants. Wear a shirt in business establishments. Wear safety equipment for certain jobs.

People don't take kindly to being ordered around like soldiers if they aren't soldiers, so politicians have to be limited in their use of dictating so people don't start ignoring and resisting it.

“I don’t know how to explain to you that your should care about people”. This IS a war. We have had more people die than in the Vietnam War. Iraq War I. Iraq War II. Afghanistan. And Korea - combined . Perhaps it’s time for just the tiniest sacrifice for the good of the country?

Wear a mask, dammit.
