There are a LOT more good people than bad ones in the world. The bad ones get the publicity because they’re unusual.
Think how boring the news would be if it only told us about people going about their everyday lives and being pleasant to everyone.
Back before Covid-19 it was the bad guys who wore masks. Now all the law-abiding citizens wear them and it’s the ones who refuse to follow the rules who refuse to wear them.
And, strangely, unless they’re also wearing a hat and dark glasses, I can easily recognize anyone I know who is wearing a mask.
I wonder how the bandits in the wild west kept from being recognized when they robbed people. Dark glasses hadn’t been invented back then.
