ENCORE: Masks work! -but only as tools for institutionalized tyranny

I’ve written, I’ve ranted, I’ve advocated civil disobedience. More information continues to roll out about the uselessness of masks to contain the virus.  Yet, they continue to prove their high effectiveness in promoting collectivism and obedience. There are some really enormous elephants in the middle of our living rooms.

Masks have become an institution, just as their proponents had intended them to be. If you did any shopping in actual stores this holiday season, you certainly know that.

As we move into 2021, I wish this piece I wrote in mid-November were obsolete.  Sadly, it has not.

We are living in an alternate universe where people are making believe there is a deadly virus for which all healthy people in the entire western world must upend their lives and give up their precious Liberty to arrogant, power-mad, Leftist bureaucrats.

Those who comply, do so either under duress or out of ignorance. They mutter under their breaths about how stupid it is but they have to do as they’re told or they’ll lose their job, lose their licenses or lose their friends. Duress comes in all shapes and sizes but it’s still bullying and intimidation.

How did America get such a quick glimpse into what life is like in communist China in less than a year? -but out of duress, I digress.

Take a look at the following piece— so potentially ”dangerous,” that Jack Dorsey, Mark Zuckerberg and others don’t think we should be allowed to read it:

New Danish study reveals that wearing masks don’t stop the transmission of the coronavirus

Who hasn’t already thought about this, read about it or decided this is true but they don’t think there’s anything they can do about it?

Why is every Democrat so in love with forcing people to wear masks, everywhere, indefinitely, and under threat of fines and punishment?  Who’s paying for the endless television commercials infantilizing us and demanding that we wear masks and wash our hands?  Why does every Democrat march in lockstep with every other Democrat in the same smug mission to force everyone to wear a piece of worthless cloth on their face?

Finally, how come we’re beginning to hear that masks are here to stay regardless of the supposed reason for them in the first place?

I heard a story recently that illustrates the real effect of masks better than any mere explanation. A young man came from a county of strict mask mandates, to a county where people have not lost their minds. He saw people acting like free citizens, enjoying each other’s company without masks on their faces!  He wanted to take his mask off, but was actually terrified to do this. He said it made him feel “naked.”

Remember what Red said in The Shawshank Redemption?
“These walls are funny. First you hate ’em, then you get used to ’em. Enough time passes, you get so you depend on them. That’s institutionalized.”

Masks are tools of institutionalized tyranny. Compliance with tyranny leads to more and greater tyranny.  Why is anyone still playing along?
