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

Makes me think of the famous Solzhenitsyn quote: "the most accessible key to our liberation: a personal nonparticipation in lies! Even if all is covered by lies, even if all is under their rule, let us resist in the smallest way: Let their rule hold not through me!"....."Never knowingly support lies."

This was part of my reply to those who insisted masking was the Christian and loving thing to do for your fearful neighbors. No, supporting them in their life of delusion is not loving.

That's a good way to put it. I was sadly disappointed that so many churches jumped on the bandwagon.. Encouraged the jabs, sit or stand 6 ft apart, always keep the masks on, no hugging--only fist bumps, etc..

They also repeat the mantra; "We need to do this to protect ourselves and each other-and our neighbors."

I agree Renee!! I’m a FL girl, but spend summers in Western NY. I never wore a mask in the NY grocery store, but did get verbally abused for walking the wrong way down the aisle. I got thrown out of REI for mask around my neck, trick didn’t work, so the manager physically moved me out the door and offered to let me shop from “a distance” - outside in the cold. (FU). I wore a mask in the doc’s waiting room, I was forced. But my dermatologist, OBGYN, GP, dentist and ortho docs NEVER said a word when I was maskless in the exam rooms. I was lucky.

I had the same experience in WNY. I dodged the masks as long as I could, but I finally submitted once a policeman at the supermarket entrance demanded mask up or leave. Since I didn't care to make his job harder, I put on a mask. Not saying I'm proud of it.

And the officer was wrong. There is no law stating you have to wear a mask. If anything, a mask is a medical device…he was violating your rights under the law. But, I understand.

He would have relied on trespassing laws. Once the store owner or his agent (in this case the police officer) asks me to leave, for any reason, I have to leave or I'm guilty of trespassing.

I don’t think you can be charged with trespassing when a business is OPEN TO THE PUBLIC.

Germans are still very lucky ,Lauterbach has not so far mandated the wearing of condoms 24/7 .for every man or boy.For females the mask could be worn top and bottom if he so mandates .That he did not do so ,so far, proves he does not love the Germans enough .

Unless.. you factor in the emerging phenomenon of vax "shedding" hurting the un-vaxxed. I've met several purebloods wearing masks in US supermarkets I had friendly chats with who told me they were until recently anti-maskers but couldn't be around the recently vaccinated without horrible side effects. I don't know the mechanism, but it's real.

I said the same to them.

if it’s exosomes shedding, then just like virus, the masks won’t help. they’re too tiny.

Expand full comment

that is what I think too. If they don't help against the virus how are they going to help against particles of the virus ? And second, I hate masks. If we get it, we get it. It is that simple.

Expand full comment

Shedding of virions is dealt with by your immune system the same way all pathogens get treated. The spike exosomes are likely everywhere by now, given the number of transfections by injection. It can’t really be avoided. Having a healthy immune system is the key. Some people experiencing ill effects may have some sort of dysfunction or sensitivity, that can’t be denied. But I don’t think it makes sense to live in fear of something so ubiquitous.

Expand full comment

There hasn’t been a lot of rigorous scientific study on shedding. Theoretically, exosomes can be shed by any tissue. The Pfizer study seemed to highlight physical contact, but shedding could occur through respiration, feces, body fluids, etc.

The masks don’t work for respiratory viruses--there’s no reason to believe they would work for shedding.

The shedding is still tiny aerosol bits though, right? So masks won’t keep them out???

I work in a (except me and a guy in the shop) fully vaxxed place. When I started working there, I got terrible leg pains and some headaches. I treated this with horse paste, NAC, nattokinase and star anise. About 2 weeks ago now I hugged a coworker to comfort her. I had a resurgence of all those symptoms plus the recurrance of a viral illness that hasn't bothered me in a decade.

Lesson learned. I can only hug the unvaxxed these days. That will make 'dating' interesting.

Expand full comment

Yes I agree, there is definitely something going on. My daughter has experienced this.

The times it affected her was when she was indoors around a large group of vaccinated people--and someone had recently gotten a shot. It is very strange, but apparently Pfizer and Moderna knew about it from the beginning...

Expand full comment

I'm not buying into the shedding thing. An injection bypasses so many of the natural defenses of the human body, but any 'shed' viral particles would have to run a deadly gantlet of bacteria, fungi, and parasites on and inside the skin and tissues which is the product of a billion years of animal evolution.

Expand full comment

The likely major shedding pathway isn’t through skin or GI tract—it’s more likely through the 130 sq meters of mucosa in our lungs and respiratory pathways. Pfizer’s study flagged skin contact with jabbed subjects for pregnant women, so there was already a recognized concern from them, even if it wasn’t reported (revealed through FOIA dump, if I recall).

Regardless of the vector, a healthy immune system knows what to do.

As a German, I'd answer to that question in following non-PC-manner: there's a reason certain awful things happened about 80-100 years ago. Germans love to follow rules. They need rules, they're lost without a system which tells them what to do. It's pathetic really, but it's reality.

And even if you're not like that, you just can't evade it either, because the powers that be go after the livelihood of businesses: they are the ones that get fined for customers not wearing masks.

As an anti-masker all this time, I kept wearing a mask in small businesses and super markets and such. Not because I wanted to, but because I do not want others to get punished for my behaviour, however right it might be. This is the true insidious nature of the technocrat fascists, tbh.

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.

Yep. I find myself outright laughing at these idiot maskers now. They wear the paper mask while in line and then remove it once they’ve gotten on the train. With all the same people. Then they remove it to eat food. For an hour. Then put the dirty mask back on to walk to the toilet. Then touch it with bathroom hands. Then pull it down to sneeze. Then up for awhile. Then they pull it down to talk to someone. Do they think the mask is a DETERRENT? Like Dirty Harry’s .357? Like the virus SEES the masks and thinks, “Oh, I’d better stay back, that guy could put that mask on any minute.” What the hell do they think the mask does? I just want to start screaming “IF THERE WAS REALLY A DEADLY VIRUS YOU WOULD BE DEAD ALREADY!”

Joe: Have you heard the latest term for the (likely) vax caused traffic collisions? "Vaxidents." I've had a few people suddenly try to make a left hand turn at a controlled intesection--Right in front of me. WTHeck?? What happened to good judgement? It was out of the ordinary for me--beyond the usual stupid--in all my decades of driving. I pondered this--And then read that traffic "acccidents" were up about ten percent over the statistical rate. The article mentiond "vaxidents." Perhaps the fools who tried to T-bone me were all triple injected. Be aware; drive even more defensively. Never mind the few drivers who are alcohol impaired. The vaxed are orders of magnitude more prevalent on the road. I read one anecdote about a triple injected man eho left home for work--Without his pants. Supposedly a true acccount. I believe it. This mRNA toxin has a "shipload" of dangerous side effects.

I've also seen scenes where drivers obviously pulled over and called emergency services, or when drivers, looking very ill, were switching seats with passengers. I hope all these people are all right, but in 40 years of driving, I've never seen this happen, and so much of it at once. People usually do that kind of pull over in parking lots. That so many are just pulling off the side of the road means this comes on fast and is of such severity one cannot make it to the Mc Donald's a quarter of a mile down the road.

I just remembered a quote I heard in recent years. This quote was attributed to Joseph Goebbels, Hitler's propaganda minister. "If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it. The lie can be maintained only for such time as the state can shield the people from the political, economic and/or military consequences of the lie." Hearing and seeing lots of things in the US and other countries that seem to mirror Nazi Germany. No disrespect to the good people living in Germany now or during WW2. It just seems to me that the evils and the atrocities of the past are merging with newer versions in the 21st century.

I am irrevocably changed, and I am not sure it is for the better—surely this animosity I feel is bad for me. I am reminded of a quote from a book that Eugyppius is forbidden by law from reading: "gradually I came to hate them."

It is sobering to reflect on this murderous hatred in my own heart, that I did not ask to feel.

Expand full comment

The passage preceding the quoted sentence is quite crucial:

"The more I argued with them, the better I came to know their dialectic. First they counted on the stupidity of their adversary, and then, when there was no other way out, they themselves simply played stupid. If all this didn't help, they pretended not to understand, or, if challenged, they changed the subject in a hurry, quoted platitudes which, if you accepted them, they immediately related to entirely different matters, and then, if again attacked, gave ground and pretended not to know exactly what you were talking about. Whenever you tried to attack one of these apostles, your hand closed on a jelly-like slime which divided up and poured through your fingers, but in the next moment collected again. But if you really struck one of these fellows so telling a blow that, observed by the audience, he couldn't help but agree, and if you believed that this had taken you at least one step forward, your amazement was great the next day."

If this doesn't describe US and EU liberals 100%, I don't know what does.

Here in New Zealand the government yesterday lifted all mask mandates (for now?) except for health care and aged care settings. I find it impossible to believe that they actually think they actually work, so the retention of mask mandates for those settings is just so that they don't have to ADMIT that they don't work. The brainwashed public think they do, so politically it is acceptable for them to be retained for "vulnerable" situations. Sigh. Anyway, I have written endlessly to government ministers responsible for making these decisions, plus other relevant parties who subscribe to the notion that mask mandates (or indeed masks) work with respect to mitigating the spread of an aerosolised nanoparticle. The response is always the same; either no response or one full of misinformation and platitudes. The latest was from our Minister for Covid-19 Response (yes, it's an actual title) which included the following studies https://www.medrxiv.org/content/10.1101/2022.07.28.22278153v1.full.pdf and https://www.healthaffairs.org/doi/10.1377/hlthaff.2020.00818. I find neither of them convincing evidence to support the wholesale masking of an entire population including children from age 10 and up at school. I don't expect that these were the only studies looked at, but one would have thought that it would be the strongest that would be included as references to support the policies I was questioning. If these are the best she can do then that is concerning. I will continue to battle on this matter until they admit they were wrong. This means I will be battling until the Ice Age comes to Hell.

Yesterday, the first day NZ was "allowed" to drop masking (I had been flouting this rule anyway), I was utterly revolted to see parents at our kindy still masking when picking their kids up, and children masked at our little local library after school - so revolted, in fact, that I wanted to grab my children and run away from them. A physical revulsion. A sneer I fought to keep off my face. Disgust I felt was emanating from me, it was so strong. Great pity for the children. It wasn't a day of liberation because I'd "liberated" myself from the mandates some time ago, but I now realize that many here weren't just compliant but terrified. They haven't done any research.

I can totally empathise with how you felt re the kindy pick up masking etc etc. It beggars belief. I am getting to the point where I will actually say something in these sorts of situations. They need to be jolted out of this insanity. I went on a "field trip" into town yesterday to see how different things would be now that Dear Leader had given her subjects "permission" to go maskless. At the local mall approximately 95% were maskless. The vast majority still covered were YOUNG! In their 20s. Most of the "oldies" were obviously done with it all. I wasn't sure which was worse - seeing the majority still "doing as they were told" by ditching their masks, or seeing some were so brainwashed they were still masking. Also, because I didn't want to be lumped into the "maskless-because-we-are-now-allowed-to-be" camp I felt like I needed to wear a badge which says "I never wore a mask anyway" :)

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

"pagan/polytheism practitioners" = Evil?

So "rational scientists" excludes fear of God in addition to the sordid history and complete failure of masks in viral prevention? Got it. Thanks

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 not the masks that bring out the terrible side of people it’s the self righteous smugness that’s become accepted and indeed protected in our hyper feminized society. Bill Burr has a great comedy routine on how women grow up in a culture in which they can say any horrible thing to anyone with little fear of reprisal (unlike men, who risk getting an ass kicking for similar behavior). This protection has now been extended to feminized men and the victim classes with horrific results. If you have zero fear of retribution; manners aren’t reinforced, and society degrades to its lowest common denominator.

Indeed. Just not diversity of thought or, even more on point, the immunological diversity whereby individual immune systems select different bouquets of epitopes as targets for future immune memory against repeat infections from a viral swarm.

Nope not that one. Everyone has to have THE manufactured antibodies.

“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.

right there with you, Rotschwan.

i fled american academia with all their woke shit, gave up salary and prestige*, for a place at a research institute where we do highly technical stuff that requires a lot of rare linguistic knowledge, and other expertise. no theory, no politics, just a lot of hard-headed very rational people, some of whom are the only guys alive who can do what they do. I had admired many of these people for years. and now this mask nonsense, with no sign of ending, and many of them are the cheerleaders for it.

right after I returned to Munich and left the whole American side of my life behind forever, i got dragged into attending a Schäfflertanz, basically a coopers' dance guild, who perform carnival-tier tricks in return for small donations. they do this every seven years, inspired by the 1517 plague. that was right on the eve of the pandemic. i feel like i stepped through the looking glass then, within months everything changed. i think about this all the time.

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

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.

Interesting how the CO2-is-evil crowd has no problem making schoolkids breathe mask air with hugely elevated concentrations, leading to poorly understood cognitive/health effects.

Expand full comment

I was convinced early on that the whole idea of masks was to reduce human CO2 emissions. We know they do absolutely nothing to prevent virus transmission and are very harmful for the wearer. The only thing that made sense was the ridiculous climate change narrative about reducing carbon dioxide. They have actually invented a mask for cows too. I saw a photo of (the then) Prince Charles applauding that effort. Now the King can really dig into the matter. It would be a great comedy sketch if it wasn't such a clear and present danger.

Expand full comment

That’s an interesting theory, but it assumes a) they actually care about the environment and b) they believe their own bullshit, neither of which is supported by the evidence.

Mask-wearing serves several purposes:

1) Establish a visual reminder that there is a pandemic, creating the illusion of a threat along with fostering a continual sense of fear, anxiety, and stress.

2) Enforce conformity of behavior and subsequently thought.

3) Identify the political dissenters by the absence of the in-group symbol; see #2 (Symbolization) under the Ten Stages of Genocide in this piece:

• “Letter to a Holocaust Denier” (https://margaretannaalice.substack.com/p/letter-to-a-holocaust-denier)

4) Dehumanize, isolate, and disconnect, which makes us more vulnerable to propaganda and easier to control.

5) Dumb down the masses via oxygen deprivation.

Those are off the top of my head, but you get the idea.

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.

Among various emails of increasing hysteria that we received from our (former) medical practice in the spring and summer of 2020 was this gem from April 10th: "When taking off the mask, only touch the straps on your head, not the front that is potentially contaminated and if you can, throw it directly into the wash."

The high comedy of the "directly into the wash" bit is that the practice serves mainly New York City residents, most of whom do not have washers and dryers in their own apartments. "Directly into a mesh bag for washing at a public laundromat or in the basement of your building surrounded by strangers sometime next week" would be more accurate.

Yeah, it's all fake. I wish eugyppius could fake up a shot card and come to the free state of FL, but that's easier said than done.

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.

Greetings from the deep blue. As a matter of fact, just yesterday while at Costco I observed that the percentage of people masking has INCREASED significantly. The sun is out it’s not cold, flu season hasn’t started but the band plays on. Not too long ago it was 20% muzzled. That has flipped to 70-80%. I was so taken aback that I took a picture and shared it with a red state buddy.

I’ve finally accepted that my life is in my hands and I’m now slowly figuring out how to connect with air breathers to replace my muzzled crew. I can’t unsee them as anything but puppets now and as Euggip says the respect is just not there anymore. Smart people who do not think has been the biggest eye opening loss.

I completely understand -- can't even imagine having to wear a mask at work all day.

I fear what will happen after all of the people who hate masks have left healthcare. Only the most militant maskers will remain, and visiting the doctor/dentist will be even more unpleasant than it already is.

At my ophthalmologist office everyone is masked of course, but every time someone would get up from their chair in the waiting room, a little covidminion would run out and spray Lysol all over the chair! Unbelievable! You could barely breathe the stench. I'm sure that's good for your health. Or it might just kill any virus in your lungs 🤔. F-ing crazy 😜

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.)
