You may ask why is this topic being returned to again?
Because we need to understand and accept the audacity ( boldness) of this big lie, repeated over and over until it became accepted as truth. Except it was never true and was always the BIG LIE
Recently the fact of Ontario, Canada’s mass covid case drop despite masks being largely not worn was mentioned. In spite of the headless chickens in the media squawking endlessly, No masks aligned with a massive fall in cases.
Now we have this piece in the NYT’s
The evidence suggests that
broad mask mandates have not done much to reduce Covid caseloads over the past two years
In U.S. cities where mask use has been more common,
Covid has spread at a similar rate as in mask-resistant cities.Mask mandates in schools also seem to have done little to reduce the spread.
Hong Kong, despite almost universal mask-wearing, recently endured one of the world’s worst Covid outbreaks.
Advocates of mandates sometimes argue that they do have a big effect even if it is not evident in populationwide data, because of how many other factors are at play.
But this argument seems unpersuasive.
Unpersuasive because it is not born out by reality. Therefore advocates of mask mandates are coming from a place of unreality. Of delusion.
When you look at the data on mask-wearing — both before vaccines were available and after, as well as both in the U.S. and abroad — you struggle to see any patterns.
Mask mandates do not work. They were and are abusive, divisive and have served to increase societal divide. They were a mode of psychological warfare waged against the populace. Done to terrorize into submission. They did not impede viral spread.
Those are the facts. That is the reality. Anything else is manipulative lying
