Letter: What is more important — life or liberty?

Deseret News

I see by the news feeds there are people protesting the mandatory use of face masks. I have questions for them: Do you use seat belts? Do use life jackets when you are on the water? Do you obey traffic laws? All these rules could be considered by some to take away your liberty. 

So more questions: Do you care for your friends and neighbors? How would you feel if one or more of those friends were infected with the coronavirus because you didn’t wear a mask, and one or more of them died? Which is more important to you? Your liberty, or the life of a friend? You are not doing this for yourself, you are doing it for others.
