I'm a few thousand miles away from Europe and America and I just shake my head, it's so unbelievable. ..
She probably feels really bad about that one.
"We were flat out told by our designated government experts "masks do not work" This depended greatly on your choice of where you got your information from. Right leaning news sources were strictly against the masks, while left learning were reporting about the inconsistencies from the CDC, politicians, and health experts.
"We don't like being told what to do." Yeah, children are like that.
"US politicians got a taste of the power to regulate how people lived their lives and decided they liked it" There is absolutely no evidence for this at all and is merely a baseless assumption.
"Why do you think Global Warming/Climate change is so hyped?" Because if we don't change our ways we'll make huge parts of the earth uninhabitable?
The "Doomsday Deadlines" don't mean that the Earth immediately becomes a hot rock. That means it'll be too late to reverse permanent changes such as arctic ice melting and coral dying.

"It seems obvious to me that Democrat governments and their media allies treated those considered allies (rioters, Biden supporters) one way and political enemies (Trump supporters, rebellious small businesspeople) a different way." You could switch the two and say the same thing. The fact that you didn't really shows your bias.
"What happens when Japanese leaders are caught doing things they know they shouldn't?" They have to apologize in public It happens all the time. That you feel that their apology is insincere is basically an assumption of what is going on in their mind, which you really don't.
"Should Gavin Newsome "apologizing" for violating his own rules somehow make up for his actions?" It's not clear that Gavin Newsome can do anything to satisfy TBH, and you are hung up on your own outrage to hear what people are saying.
"As I said at the top, you may have the last word. I will not reply again." Be that as it may, this is my space on DeviantArt and I do feel compelled to reply to what is posted on it.
