A thought experiment: Person L is a left wing random citizen who thinks of himself as a science oriented progressive/humanist and believes we should wear masks. Person R is a right wing public figure who thinks covid is something close to a hoax and no reason to change behavior.
L would be quite pleased if R or a close family member thereof with similar beliefs contracts the disease with severe symptoms, possibly dying. At the same time, L would never in a million years, even in secret, turn the switch that causes R to contract the disease and, situation allowing, would go out of his way to help R or keep R out of harms way.
Where does L fall on the moral spectrum? Is L a hypocrite?
