• This has become a semantics conversation, so probably of limited value.

    But, FWIW, I wrote "justify" to mean "support the reasons that you have found with a basis that is arguable and defensible in the context of known evidence, in accordance with the classical liberal approach of allowing others to have their liberty, unless that liberty deprives others of an equivalent or greater liberty."

    CF wanting others to wear masks indoors: I justify asking others to forego the liberty of choice over mask wearing, since them not wearing a mask has a demonstrably high chance of depriving yet more people of their liberty of being healthy and alive.

    Outdoors, very much not so much.
