Pro business choice to enforce masks; anti government mask mandate
A lot of people think libertarians are “anti-maskers”. I think they conflate this with the opposition to mask mandates. Libertarians can still support personal mask usage, but be against government forcing private businesses forcing these mandates.
With that being said, you can’t be a Libertarian and support forced mask mandates, but you can be a libertarian and still support the personal choices of people to wear masks.
I don’t think it’s stupid to wear masks nor have I ever judge someone for wearing it. I don’t think people shouldn’t wear masks; I support personal choice. I think people have a right to asses their own risks and determine for themselves what they want to do. I wear them out of respect for others and businesses, but if it were up to me I wouldn’t wear them.
There’s a difference between being an “anti-masker” and being anti-government mandate.
