Masks make the wearer an active and invested participant in the lies they're being told.

Lauterbach is the guy at the poker table who keeps doubling down with a pair of 2's. Eventually someone will call his bluff.

Welcome to my world. I can't make eye contact with someone in a mask. If I encounter someone in a mask-voluntary place with one on, I cannot help but look at them with utter disgust and revulsion, and lately outright hostility. When I see adult parents - unmasked - walking with their masked kids, it is no different than seeing them whipped with a belt in my eyes.

Day in and day out, I see people who I once mistook as rational human beings, put their mask on, then take it off when they sit down for a while, then put it back on, then pull it under their nose, then remove it again, and on and on. They could be sticking needles in their eyes, it would make more sense.

Countless casual acquaintances I no longer bother to say hello to. When I do the usual dad-at-kids-party stuff, I more or less stand on my own, or with other minorities like myself who feel so unbelievably alone in this sea of insanity

I have said it before, and i'll say it again - I will never be the same.

As I entered the stadium I refused the offered mask. My companion asked, “Why don’t you use the mask?” “Because”, I said,”I know the difference between a micron and a nanometer”.

I wrote a few articles on the harder-to-articulate but nevertheless profound harms of masking, it's hard for most people to articulate subtle psychological dynamics even if they are devastating to them.

Brownstone published a couple of them, hopefully will publish the third too:

Even more so, slaves have worn mask as well as pagan/polytheism pratctioners. The Evil symbolism is spot on.

A couple years ago when masks were required wear I lived, I got various scary skull masks as a silent protest. I’m a lawyer and when I went to my first in person deposition in many months, I unthinkingly picked up the first mask lying around the house. I didn’t notice it was a skull mask. I walked into the deposition in my suit and tie and skull mask, and the opposing counsel accused me of trying to intimidate him. Angry hilarity ensued. The entire deposition was very hostile because we were both wearing masks, and a contentious situation is made worse when the parties can’t see each other’s faces.

To top it off, during the lunch break I went outside and took off my mask. I didn’t know there was an outdoor mask mandate in that city until a jogger--shirtless, but wearing a mask--yelled at me: “put your fucking mask on!”

I am a peaceful mellow guy, but I challenged the jogger to fight me. I have never done that before in my life. The jogger flipped me off and ran away.

I will never forget that day.

In addition to all the practical reasons masks are terrible, on a metaphysical level I think they are demonic. They bring out a terrible side of people

“It’s been devastating for me to watch older colleagues, whose opinion and expertise I respect, succumb to this irrational superstition.”

YES. As a Renaissance/Baroque singer with a business day job, I believed I was part of a subset of a subset of rather counterculture, independent thinkers who’ve devoted much of their lives to insistence on a kind of beauty that is often inscrutable to the modern ear and mind, often expensive to produce, and daunting for the conventionally trained musician to learn. A few of the most experienced members of this cohort have been incredibly generous and supportive mentors and collaborators.

It’s been absolutely excruciating for me to watch this one true tribe of like minds (so I once thought, before they banished me for refusing masks & pokes) subscribe to and double down on the ‘Rona delusion. Most of them still won’t speak to me or play with me, and they’re still observing the liturgy with more or less devotion.

I will never get over this. Scarcely a week goes by when I don’t contemplate just ending my performing career (what parsimonious scraps of it remain). Fvck this garbage.

I can't describe or explain how much the mask enrages me.

I know, silly right??

Anytime I see someone wearing one, or on a commercial, or even the mere mention of "masks" makes my blood pressure spike through the ceiling.

I am not exaggerating.

I have not given up on my mission to dethrone Karl Lauterbach! I encourage everyone to share the following letter with the hashtag #FireKarlLauterbach:

• “Letter to the German Bundestag” (https://margaretannaalice.substack.com/p/letter-to-the-german-bundestag)

Also, anyone can feel free to use my letter to the Oregon Health Authority to oppose mask mandates. Many have done so, including an autistic student who wrote a letter to her school board and cited my research as supporting evidence to help overturn the mandate at her school:

It is so sad and also ridiculous. Think about this: if masks were to stop anything shouldn't they be disposed of on a regular basis? And also maybe in a biohazzard container?

Yet, we are told they stop stuff, and you can reuse them again and again and again. Somehow this virus knows not to bother people when eating. Only to and from certain areas.

Mass formation via social proof. Sorry you are going thru this

Thank you for articulating my thoughts exactly.

I live in a deep blue area of the US, and it's very clear that masks are NEVER going away in medical settings. They're not even talking about an end game.

I find myself nostalgically watching pre-2020 medical shows where people could visit the doctor/dentist/clinic/hospital unmasked. I know that this part of life is gone forever, and it's incredibly, soul-crushing, depressing.

In 2003 I was in an elevator once with someone wearing a mask. I thought it was just so...odd, but whatever. Little did I know in less than 20 years these people would be running the world. I was not interested in them, but they would most certainly become interested in me.

So I would be content to live in a society with the masker's mental illness, except that they FORCE me to participate. This forced participation in their mental illness is the most despairing because it's so hard to imagine how it will ever end in my lifetime.

I feel for you! I cannot bear seeing people in masks. It's so stupid and unhygienic and uninformed and stupid and stupid. That people are so stupid that they wear them without a second thought. I hate it and I am worried that they will return en masse in the UK this winter. Because people are stupid. I have tried to explain to myself that it's all this mass formation/hypnosis/government fear-mongering. But basically, people are stupid and I hate them for being so stupid. Covid is a nasty cold virus. Nothing makes any difference to a cold virus. But people are stupid enough to wear a dirty mask because some twat on the TV told them to.

I'll quote (and translate) my funny, sensitive and strong willed 8 year old son about masks, when the news came that he had to wear a mask at summer camp (later, at school):

1) it stinks

2) it is extremely irritating, I hate this feeling of the mask on my face. I just hate it.

3) I cannot see properly with a mask creeping up my nose

4) it is not healthy for me

5) I rebreath my own air which cannot be good for me

6) there must be small dust particles that I breathe in.

We found a nice and understanding doctor (which was not easy) who talked with him and gave him a medical exemption. He was the only child in his primary school who went without a mask when it was mandatory. There were some other parents unhappy about the masks, but their children didn't want to stand out from the crowd and so they gave in. Our son felt he could go without the mask because the doctor had such a good conversation with him, which made him feel strong.

To this day, I cannot thank this doctor enough, for listening to him and taking him seriously.

(This was at a time when some doctors where intimidated by the medical board of doctors, for writing medical exemptions for children. Oh wel, there are STILL doctors being chased by this board, to this day. It is a disgrace.)
