The bottom line is that the vast majority of people aren't going to die from this. And those at risk, assuming they care, should be isolating themselves.

Framing this as a choice is a cop out, likely because your position requires it.
Anyways, for the gagillionth time, it's not just about death. You clearly, against for the gagillionth time, don't understand what flatten the curve means. Become informed before opening your mouth.
Also, if we let everybody run around and just spread it uninhibited, there likely won't be a level of isolation good enough to save those who "choose" to isolate themselves. High prevalence in the population will make their chances of catching it astronomically higher when they have to go out. And they will have to go out at some point. There is no complete isolation.
Finally, you're basically advocating for a stricter quarantine of a smaller proportion of the population. That is what would be necessary for your plan to work and not kill thousands of more people.
Which is why in the end your position amounts to "let me do what I want, let everybody else deal with the consequences". A typically short sighted, self-centered "c-c-conservative" viewpoint.
