Thanks. I've considered all of those things.I know you and I have sparred here in the past, but I want to offer this--kindly--for your consideration. Your comment about empathy is interesting and I'd ask you to consider the possibility that you, too, lack empathy.
People wear these (god-awful) masks to protect those around us, not to protect ourselves. You've said before that you and your spouse only visit businesses that don't enforce your local mask mandate and that you frequently dine out. This puts you at a much higher risk of contracting the virus. By not wearing a mask, you are much more likely to spread it after you've caught it. Your extended family probably didn't invite you to their Christmas celebrations because your choices make them scared to be around you. If you would sacrifice by (1) wearing a mask, (2) social distancing, and (3) avoiding public spaces in accordance with CDC guidelines, then I suspect that your loved ones would be more comfortable being near you.
I'm not saying this to be combative, but please consider the possibility that you might be in the wrong, that your stance on this is frightening to the people you care about, and that your actions could harm others.
