Dan, I challenge you to go to the library maskless. DeSantis has forbidden any punishment for not wearing a mask. You can not trespass at the library as it is a public place. Also, don't forget, trespassing is not the only charge being used. You are civil disobedient if you don't wear a mask. While technically, the charge has nothing to do with the mask, must of us know it has everything to do with the mask. It is simply a game of words.
I must disagree that it is 'simply a game of words". There are people getting shot dead for refusing to wear masks here in Palm Beach County and in Miami.
I tried to go into the library (Needed to print something off their computers) here in Palm Beach County late last summer with a mask in my hand. Mind you I was the only patron in the building... I hadn't taken two steps (while *very* slowly pretending to make an effort to half-assed put on my mask...) before I had both librarians rush me, yelling to put my mask on. "Mask UP! MASK UP!!" And of course, it took about another 5 seconds for both security guards to also come (full speed) RUNNING, brandishing unholstered tasers... I turned to leave at that point. They very loudly informed me that I WOULD BE PUTTING THE MASK ON TO BE ESCORTED OUT OF THE BUILDING. (Two over six-foot NFL built MEN hysterically holding me captive unless I permit them to trigger my CPTSD which would have triggered a life-threatening asthma attack.) (um.... no.)
I pointed out they were holding me prisoner; step away from me and let me LEAVE.
"NO! YOU HAVE TO BE ESCORTED BY US! MASK UP NOW!"
No. I *don't* NEED to be escorted. You NEED to stop assaulting me, brandishing weapons and violating my civil rights.
I turned around, took 2 steps and left through the fire exit. Boy, that was a loud alarm.
In hindsight, I should have pursued charges against all four of those employees but did not recognize at that point the magnitude and commitment of those determined to destroy our Constitution and health.
Still, the experience proved the painful cognitive dissonance being acted on from the psychological torment that is being perpetrated against those who believe themselves to only be protected and safe if all members of the hive comply with EVERY illogical, random, rights-violating directive, whether it flip flops one day to the next, or not.
If those two armed, powerful men understood that from my perspective (as a psychologist) they were telling everyone they grew up poor, physically abused and under-educated as so did all their adult role models growing up, I'd put money on them reconsidering their behavior.
Ignorance can turn to grave, clear and present danger instantly in the propaganda-soaked environment we currently live in.
I travel all over the country (driving!) and can tell you beyond a shadow of a doubt that walking into a crowded gas station anywhere in the Lower 48 and quickly calculating the percentage of mask-wearers (regardless of signs on doors) is directly correlated to the red vs blue politics of that county.
