Masks don’t work
The supposed efficacy of masks has evolved from something completely unnecessary to something now forced on the population as a way to “slow the spread” and “save lives”.
I am old enough to remember when the surgeon general and every US health authority agreed, masks are not needed for the healthy, and in fact should be saved for those in the hospitals who need them.
Even America’s “beloved” Dr. Fauci was talking about how ineffective a mask really is at stopping any type of spread or transmission in March:
We can even recall the multiple times we have seen Fauci remove his virtuous mask when the cameras are “off”:
Or when we are at our own private Baseball game:
Even the CDC (cdc.gov) in May of 2020, found that multiple studies show that there no significant reduction in influenza transmission:
In our systematic review, we identified 10 RCTs that reported estimates of the effectiveness of face masks in reducing laboratory-confirmed influenza virus infections in the community from literature published during 1946?July 27, 2018. In pooled analysis, we found no significant reduction in influenza transmission with the use of face masks?Xiao, J., Shiu, E., Gao, H., Wong, J. Y., Fong, M. W., Ryu, S….Cowling, B. J. (2020).

However, despite past evidence and study showing that the masks have little to no effectiveness, we find much of the country having individual rights and liberties stepped on to “slow the spread”.
Remember “15 days to slow the spread”? That was March 16, 2020 and included no mask mandates.
How quickly the country has changed.
We now find ourselves in a place where we are told to “follow the science” and “trust the data”. When science and data goes against the narrative of the times, it is quickly a “conspiracy theory” or “politicizing the virus”. Regardless of personal feelings on the issue, the facts and data show that masks have no effectiveness on protecting yourself or others against the spread of any virus.
The mask mandates are not to protect others, they are to control and show virtue(washingtonexaminer.com)
Not only does a mask not help to protect anybody, there is surprising evidence living in a masked society is dehumanizing the population and removing empathy and increasing fear for our neighbors(lovebreedsaccountability.com).
If you prefer a more practical example:
Regardless of any sensible facts or reason, masks will continue to be used as a tool of control, and used as an effort to dehumanize ourselves to our neighbors.
