You are correct. I was making two points in the same post. Not good. I intended comparing your reasoning only to people willingly sitting in a burning theater.You're conflating freedom to associate and speak with liability for willfully misleading people that results in injury. Someone deciding that the low risk of having Thanksgiving with loved ones is worth it is not tantamount to telling everyone in a burning theater that there is no fire.
Well, you'll be super convinced by the imagery of how horrific the holocaust was, and because of how horrible that was that you must obey my commands, beginning with my command not to think about whether a non-related bad thing should convey authority to me.
