How Much It’ll Cost Them

Mask wearing is going to get expensive – for the businesses that insist, if we refuse.

I wrote about my decision to cancel my gym membership of more than 15 years’ standing if my gym says I must wear a mask in order to be allowed in the gym. Over the past 15 years, I have paid more than $5,000 in membership fees, not including the additional fees in the same amount paid by my ex-wife over about the same time period. I obviously like this gym – Crunch Fitness in Roanoke – and planned to work out there for another 15 years, at least.

Which would be at least another $5,000 for the gym, just from me. But if the Mask Mandate comes, my cash will go. I won’t pay to play Sickness Kabuki for the sake of Sickness Psychotics who need therapy much more than a workout.

This will get into real money – maybe enough money to make a difference. Enough financial pressure to make the gym’s owners rethink their Mask Mandate.

This is power – the not-evil kind.

It is the power of voluntary free exchange. Of mutual consent.

The gym, like any business, has the right to establish its terms and conditions. But customers have a right to withhold their business when those terms and conditions are unacceptable to them.

Being told one must wear a surgical mask – while working out – is as preposterous as it is pathological. Probably someone is more likely to die from respiratory distress caused by a mask – which isn’t designed to facilitate the deep and heavy breathing that comes with working out – than might get sick because someone wasn’t wearing a mask.

In any event, the gym can require. But we don’t have to pay.

Many businesses in America are like that now. Their product or service is secondary to their insipid virtue-signaling. Which they seem to think matters more than the products or services they offer.

And may, to some.

Not to me, though. And perhaps not to you.

I pay a gym membership to get a workout; not to be schooled. I go there to relieve tension, not aggravate it.

I won’t pay to be aggravated.
