    More than the compassion they're showing for all the people they may unintentionally infect that may die.

    When I "dismiss" you it only means that I have determined that further discussion is useless or counter-productive. Don't take it personally. Go ahead and have your last word...and move on.

    It's a good question.
    Ironically, Ayn Rand's romantic fantasy books, Atlas Shrugged in particular, was a fantasy of just that. The big capitalists who were so tired of the "parasites" (aka working class people), trying to use guberment to "steal" from them, that they took their amazing ideas that apparently the CEOS themselves created and engineered (lol), and hid away in a super secret utopia.

    The fantasy here is that if we did like Rand did, we'd take away all socially-created good, and let them "fend for themselves" in their selfish, "survival of the fittest" nonsensical claims. They'd dangle their worthless money, and would be rejected because they refused to keep others safe...their money would be worthless because they have agreed they don't; give a **** about anyone but their own family and friends (at least two posters have recently confirmed this). So doctors would say, yeah, I don't know you..you put me at risk, you put others at risk...good luck...get one of your selfish buddies to help you.

    But of course, that's not right.

    We have to love life, including all others, in the philosophical context. I don't; know Rush Limbaugh, but I love him and his family and hope they stay safe and live a full life. I don't like him, I probably hate how he spends his time, but as a human, I still love him. That's not a contradiction, and it's not that complicated either. Even laday gaga gets it, she's espousing this right now on ABC.

    But some don't get it, and we still gotta love those turds. /preach

    Do you intentionally check my comments with a magnifying glass to find one word that you will be able to take issue with? You must be really desperate for some attention. Not meaning to be insulting but you might consider taking your dog out for a walk more often, maybe a drive for you and the wife out in the country? Those things really help to center your mind onto what's important in life and what isn't.

    Getting back to your comment, not everyone that is carrying the virus while asymptomatic will pass the virus to someone else. They may and they may not.

    may1
    /mā/
    verb
    modal verb: may

    1.
    expressing possibility.
    "that may be true"
