Hi everyone Charles Bosworth here, friends know me as Boz. Some of you that have been following me for a while know me as Boz Profit or Charlie Profit. Regardless, I'm back and hopefully this is not the only episode that you will hear from this podcast. I hope I can line up more episodes for you, but I had to start somewhere. So this is what I've got for you. Take a listen.
Maybe you can help me understand something and now is as good a time as any to ask this question because it's been on my mind for a while. Why is it that people will choose to follow certain laws and condemn you for not following the laws that they are following.
Speeding is against the law. It's against the law because it's dangerous. It's all about safety, safety for the driver, safety for other drivers. If you're speeding, you put yourself in danger because you cannot react as quickly and you put other drivers in danger because they don't have as much time to react to something that you are doing, especially in inclement weather. If you're speeding and it's raining and you're driving faster than the conditions will allow for your vehicle and you try to stop, you're gonna skid, you're gonna slide. And you're gonna cause an accident. You could cause an accident. So it's against the law to speed. And people don't care.
People do not follow the speed limit. They just don't care if they're going to go as fast as they want to go, to get where they need to go. Now. I on the other hand, I try to follow the speed limit. Sometimes I look down and I see that I'm going faster than I should. I let off the gas and I slow down and come back down to the speed limit.
Using turn signals. It is against the law to not use your turn signal. You are required by law to use your turn signal when you are turning, when you're changing lanes. This is to alert other drivers what you're doing to give them time to react to what you are doing. People do not use their turn signals. They choose not to. They break the law. They don't care. People change lanes all the time without using turn signals. People merge into traffic without using turn signals. People turn onto different roads turning left, turning right without using turn signals. They just don't care. And using your turn signal is also for people's safety. It alerts the other drivers to what you are doing. So they can react accordingly. If you are planning on turning at the next street coming ahead, you put your turn signal on. That alerts the driver behind you that you are about to turn and doesn't catch them off guard when you step on your brakes to slow down.
So these laws are for people's safety. It's for the public's safety, it's for the good of everybody, but people just don't care. They are not following the law.
Now enter mandated mask wearing. Suddenly everybody wants to follow the law of wearing a mask, because it's for the public safety. Regardless of the fact, that has been scientifically proven, that masks really do not help at all. As a matter of fact, it's been scientifically proven that if you wear a mask, you could actually put yourself in more danger. You could make yourself sick from wearing a mask.
But yet people are being selective about the laws that they want to follow. They're not going to follow the laws of the road and it's more likely that you're going to get into an accident and die in an auto accident than it is that you would catch coronavirus from not wearing a mask. And yet people want you to wear a mask and infringe on your rights to not wear a mask. So maybe you can answer that for me. I look forward to hearing your answers.
Okay, so answer my question. Comment, reply, like, share, do all of those things that you do with the cat memes. Do it with this podcast episode. I want to hear what you think about how this works. Where it's okay for people to not obey some laws, but you have to follow other laws. Why is it okay to be selective with the laws that we follow? Because from my perspective, wearing a mask infringes on my rights, on my individual rights, because I'm not really affecting anybody else. These masks do not work. If they worked, it would be a different story, but they do not work. So this is a control issue for me.
Following the speed limit is not a control issue for me because I understand that I am actually able to protect other people on the road. I'm able to protect the passengers in my car because by following the speed limit, it allows me to be able to respond to situations that I would not be able to respond to if I were going too fast in that zone. So if you're going 55 in a 35 and a little kid runs out in the street, you're not going to have time to react. You're going 95 in a 75 zone. And a car up ahead needs to slow down for some reason, you're gonna come up on it really fast. You might not have time to react and move out of the way, especially if there's a lot of traffic flowing.
I hope you understand where I'm going with this. I do not like my personal rights being infringed upon, but I do understand the necessity to have certain laws in place so that we do protect each other. Wearing masks is not one of those things because the masks do not work. Do your research. There is a multitude of websites that will back up what I am saying: that masks will not protect you and they do not protect other people from the coronavirus. It's just, it just doesn't work. And if we can understand this concept, this very, very basic simple concept, we will understand that what is happening is more about control and less about safety.
