Do Masks Matter?

Do Masks Matter?

From Social Science Space…  COVID Science and Politics – the Case of Face Masks

A troubling turn in the public policy management of the COVID-19 pandemic has been the increasing tendency to justify interventions by assertions of scientific truth that bely the uncertainty of the evidence on which they are based. Nowhere, perhaps, is this more obvious than in the case of mandatory face masks in community settings, particularly, but not exclusively, in the USA. Otherwise well-respected scientists and scholars seem to have decided that, if they announce that black is white often enough, then this will indeed be the case. Such pronouncements have more in common with the Ministry of Truth in George Orwell’s 1984 that with anything we might have recognized as appropriate professional behaviour in 2019.  Read more here

In Scotland, the requirement to wear masks in public places remains in force, even though other restrictions have been lift.  There are politicians on record, saying they would like to see masks as part of the “new normal”.  I bet.  They are a visible sign of our obedience to the State in this sinister “new normal”.  How come so many people fail to see the insistence by Government on face-coverings as a means of totalitarian control?  It is shocking to see the once highly respected medical profession turning into a  tool to impose tyranny upon peoples across the world.

How long (if ever) before we have our God-given freedoms fully restored?

    Dear Editor,
    Of course these pieces of (usually well handled and used) cloth are useless in preventing anything except virtue signaling or demonic control.
    When we know that we exhale 40,000ppm of Carbon Dioxide with every exhalation – you know that planet destroying (sarcasm ) gas of life which our Pontiff wishes to ban – then if you cover up our mouth and nose we are inhaling life threatening levels of this “evil” gas.
    An interesting point is that if we are to rescue many threatened people from Afganistan – which is humanitarian – how many of their persecuted ladies will be wearing burkas and even more copious coverings to comply with their religious beliefs? Even our great Leader Nickola should approve.
    Mind you WEEMONS rights seemingly do not apply to the “Religion of Peace”

      Of course now that the Religion of Peace is back in the Main News it also seems,forby Wummins Rights ,Hate Speech doesn’t apply to them either. We now Have that Evil Moslem Choudary Shouting for us all to be killed yet again. Why I and probably others would like to know this Evil Mans Ban on Public Speaking was lifted on the 18thJuly this Year . Just in time for the Taliban takeover. Of course were He to speak on The Ten Commandments He would be arrested. But as you say the Religion of Peace must get their way or we all have Phobias again. Also why do the Religion of Peace Men Never wear Masks . Are Moslem Men exempt ?

      Watersider,

      I don’t think Nicola Sturgeon cares about anyone’s rights. She’s tyrannical. She is responsible for so much evil in Scotland, it’s hard to find the words to express my thoughts about her. She is, literally, a danger to children, that is for sure as the recent discussion on trans/4 year olds, shows.

        Nicky,

        The Sturginator is most certainly tyrannical, but I’d bet that she’s just another NWO script-reader following orders from someone, or some group, behind the throne. Her actions betray her, standing there behind her podium like a plump hen who’s just laid a golden egg and gotten her pat on the head from her master(s).

        In the big picture, blaming her for the medical tyranny appears to be much like blaming Joke Biden for the current state of affairs in Afghanistan (or anywhere else on the globe, for that matter). Biden is just a puppet following orders, signing what’s put in front of him. I’d have to say the same for Sturgeon, Trudeau, Johnson, Macron, Merkel, et. al.

        Question is, who’s giving the orders?

    Absolutely agree with you! Here’s the scientific truth that blows away the mask lie:

    Incidentally, I note that a British court has issued a warrant for the arrest of Professor Delores Cahill for the crime of breaking COVID rules earlier this year by holding an anti-lockdown rally in London. This is the “new normal”, of Soviet totalitarianism in our country.

      I heard that about Professor Delores Cahill earlier today – that is real totalitarianism, being arrested for thinking differently from the government! God help us all.

      That Lifesitenews article on masks is terrific. Everyone should read that. The fact that we are being lied to, so blatantly, and true science suppressed is shocking beyond words. I’m grateful that you posted that. I’ll spread it around.

        Yes, I was very impressed with that article with all the various proof links to other websites. I have it bookmarked so that I can get to it whenever I want. Might be worth you doing that as well.

        Good idea – I’ve just added that link to my Favourites. TBH, I don’t often think of that, so thanks for the suggestion.

        I’ve bookmarked that Lifesitenews article as well – it’s packed with important information. Many thanks for posting it.

    I remembered reading a very good article on this subject in Catholic Truth, so it took a while to find it as I couldn’t remember the title but this is it, it’s very good, written by a surgeon.

      MM,

      I often cite that article by Dr Jim Meehan, so thank you for searching it to post again. It’s excellent.

    I get so very angry when I see people still wearing masks now. It’s obvious what Sturgeon is up to, removing some restrictions but hanging on to the mask wearing, the one visible sign she has that the population of Scotland is acting obediently to her draconian rules.

    I still cannot believe that so many people are continuing to wear them. They look stupid, frankly, and they must know that they are useless. Watching the clowns touching them, moving them up over their noses over and over again – do they not know that if they touch them even once, they are supposed to throw them away into a bin, and put on a new one?

    I enjoyed this little allegory about the scam-demic (including the mask part, Ed….staying over the target…..looking for more zeroes in my paycheck……):

      RCA Victor,

      That allegory did make me smile, not least because, today, history was made. I became a “lady who lunches” in a fairly local restaurant; three of us presented to eat, and I was taken aback to find the whole track and trace, or whatever it’s called, system in place. I had been under the impression that that was now over. After being mad for a bit, I realised that the staff member (Manager, I think) attending to us, despite being masked, really did not feel inclined to report us for giving massively long phone numbers or strange sounding names… 😀 Well, for all any of you know, I might have to ring Japan sometimes…

      Others have told me the same thing. When I told a friend I’d never set foot in a restaurant again unless all of this nonsense was stopped, she said the hearts of the staff are not in it. Anywhere she’s been, she said, they are doing what they have to do to keep their jobs. I suspected that was what was going on today and so I settled to enjoy what turned out to be a lovely lunch.

      When on earth, though, will the hospitality profession return to the old normal – does anyone know? Are we going to be faced (literally) with masked staff for the foreseeable future?

      I enjoyed that allegory – it highlights the utter stupidity of the world’s COVID narrative that so many in the world have swallowed hook, line and sinker.

    The people in this clip give really stupid reasons for wearing a mask outside. Ben Shapiro’s question at the end is really important to think about – if governments can get people to do something this stupid, what else can they get us to do.

    I could not resist popping in to post this latest madness from Australia… And there’s a LOT of Covid madness going on in Australia…

    I wasn’t sure whether to post this on the Biden thread, since it has Biden in the title but I think the video (which is quite funny in bits) is best here
