“I’m curious what folks think about today’s announcement concerning masks on our campus”
In the last week, there have been a few instances where the word ‘freedom’ has been politicized. This is dangerous for the country.
The College Fix reports:
Purdue professor worries campus mask-optional policy will give people ‘more freedom’
In response to Purdue University moving to an optional face mask policy, an English professor complained the move would give people “more freedom.”
Purdue announced on February 16 that beginning last Friday, face masks in indoor settings would be optional “except for instructional, research and health care settings, as well as where contractually required.”
The campus currently has a five percent COVID positivity rate, according to the statement.
Professor Robert Marzec, whose specialization is contemporary British and postcolonial literature, didn’t think much of the announcement.
“I’m curious what folks think about today’s announcement concerning masks on our campus,” Marzec wrote in an email obtained by the Twitter account Libs of Tik Tok. “A lax mask policy can easily lead to a new evolution of the virus, and yes, a virus becomes less deadly as it evolves.
“Regardless of how students will interpret ‘except for instructional settings,’ I’m worried that this can only translate to more freedom for a culture of health laziness and give more fodder to the combative, politicized conception of individual freedom now rampant.”
Wow. After Purdue University announced they were going mask optional, a professor sent out an email to his class where he voiced concerns about the “politicized conception of individual freedom” pic.twitter.com/tikgJwMWxX
