The mask debate in the US echoes a lot of history in the nuclear safety world. But you don't see mass groups of people pointing at the (real and still ongoing) controversy of whether getting irradiated at low levels is harmful (ex: radiation hormesis "it's actually healthy guise!1!!"), saying "but muh liberty", and carrying radioactive materials everywhere and irradiating the general public. That is something the nuclear industry has tried to be really careful about: avoiding harmful messaging.
