5. It was a social contract...

It was a social contract based on an honor system.

We are seeing a litmus test about who has honor and is able to abide by that and who doesn't. We are even seeing people go deeper into dishonor by lying about their health and creating fraudulent, phony cards to get away with their anti-social behaviors.

In a way, that, to me, is the underlying problem. The rest is pomp and circumstance that may distract from the issue of honor in a society, but it comes down to that. Hair on fire is just a facade. Rights are not the real issue and freedom is reciprocal not a tyranny of one.
