Re: Is the point of a personal interest that you persue it?
Should people go and view this bird? No
Would I encourage them to do so? No
Do I believe it is appropriate or suitable to view the bird? No
Do I respect that they can do whatever they want? Yes
If a member of my family died due to an infected twitcher climbing into my garden, would I approve? No
Can I stop them? No
Can I trust people to do the right thing? No
Can I trust myself to do the right thing? Depends on whose perspective of 'right'
Would I break lockdown rules for a dying friend/relative? Yes
Would I accept the consequence? Yes
Do I believe that staying at home as per govt. guidelines is the correct thing to do? Yes
Yes, there are some things I will do because I believe I must, the twicher felt seeing the bird was in this category so how can I comment? I wouldn't break lockdown to see a bird but some clearly did.
What drives any of us?
The freedom to make bad decisions and take the consequence is entirely my own and I grant that freedom to the twichers too. You would have to physically restrain me otherwise.
