2. People in general MASSIVELY underestimate their vulnerability to viruses...

Ignorance is bliss, but Stupidity kills.

We all now KNOW that COVID-19 is transmissible from human to human and is air-borne.
This has been demonstrable for over a year now.

We also know that masks on ALL people cuts the transmission rate significantly for casual passing contacts...it does NOTHING for people who insist on touching their faces all day without washing their hands (something that is a vital secondary act that we do not emphasize nearly enough - hand washing prevents or slows self-infections!!!)

When you are unaware of facts, you are ignorant. Its not a label, its a description.
When you remain stubborn in the face of facts, you are stupid. THAT is a label AND a description.

For people wearing masks beneath their nose, you are stupid.
For people not wearing masks in public spaces, you are stupid AND evil.
For people spreading disinformation and denials about COVID-19, you are stupid, evil and lucky if you stay out of reach of anything heavy and blunt that I could swing at your head.

The best illustration I have seen for what the could around a person would look like if you could see their unmasked exhalations:

THIS is what everyone should be seeing on TV instead of commercials for drugs that they should "ask you doctor about...".
