Holy shit this is in the top 100 all time rants, thanks for this.
I would have just written "There's two types of people: Free thinkers and slaves. Slaves must be punished." but it wouldn't have been nearly as entertaining.
I noticed this first hand working as a contractor. If we were finishing a bathroom in an upper-middle class home, where the couple worked from home, they were adamant about always wearing masks. Super scared of the coof. If we were renovating a bathroom for a blue-collar, lower middle class family they did not give a shit at all. I just thought it had to do with the fact that yuppies never had to face any kind of hardship or threat, while working class people were used to dealing with these kinds of stresses. Covid was the first time some of these freaks couldn’t just pay their way out of something.
My higher earning family members were all Branch Covidians
