Odd, I find "not living in fear" to be a phrase mostly used by people who equate ignorance with courage.

Probably not you, but the people I encounter every day.

Which is easily recognized, as they spout both this bravado, and false statements about the virus, and science in general. The connection is obvious. And the phrase is thrown out as a dismissal of those who are trying to reduce the real-world damage caused by the virus.

Of course, some may be fully aware of the consequences, and willing to accept them. I'm not about to characterize everyone.

I find this is usually an unanswered question. :popcorn:

Interesting. Let’s say I was walking from my car into a gas station to buy a soda and realized I forgot my mask. Instead of walking back to get it, I said screw it, I won’t be in there long. Would this behavior be best classified as:

A. Dismissing the facts of Covid.
B. Not living in fear of the virus.
C. Being too lazy & ignorant to bother worrying about how my actions might affect others.
D. All of the above.

All of the above, but particularly C
Go back to your damn car

At least to me, when people "dismiss the facts", they are denying they are true, exist, etc.

To not live in fear of it, to me, means that even though I recognize the threat is real, I will from time to time take measured risks. Will I go into the gas station for a soda without my mask? Yes. Will I go to a very crowded mall or store without one? No. Will I get unreasonably angry when I see someone without a mask? No.

I think its kind of like cigarette smoking. Everyone knows it can cause cancer, but some people do it anyway. Not living in fear of it.

Me going back to the car isn't because I feel fear. It's because I care.

Just different types I guess.

I guess I am not the type that has to prove how "woke" I am.

You are so blindly self centered, I tend to believe you have little understanding of the entire concept of fear.

Fear is not a choice. How you deal with it is. The least courageous action I can imagine, is the dismissal of how your actions impact your fellow man.

This self proclaimed interwebz badassery routine is stale. Your posting screams narcissism and fear.
