What if masks make it worse? What if the mandates are making the cases go up? Steep curves up and to the right are what we’re looking for in stocks, business growth and other metrics. Not what we’re looking for with cases or deaths. Some of the places without mask mandates have lower cases than those with mandates. I have seen very few (if any) states with mask mandates where cases are dropping. Hmm. Yeah. Yeah. It’s anecdotal I know. But where’s your scientific data to the contrary. I’ll wait. Maybe there isn’t a correlation either way. The humps and curves looks similar in different geographies, regardless of interventions. The only difference is when. This was the theory my wife, who’s been a science teacher all her life, put out back in March. She’s been pretty damn accurate.
What if the experts are just making decisions to appease your anxiety? I mean if you do a thing you tend to feel less anxious. Wear a mask. Stay at home. Keep your distance. It all can make you feel like you’re doing something to change the status quo. I call it the illusion of control. I think it’s become an idol. I think it discounts God and the natural order of things. It’s my choice to think so and act accordingly. But these experts, first in unison, said masks don’t work and aren’t needed. Then they changed the narrative. However, little evidence has supported this. Just 30 days and we’ll have this under control. They said in July. Your mask is as good as a vaccine said the CDC director in October. That quote seems to be hanging around like a 40 year mortgage. People wil be quick to point the compliance issue. I’m not buying that one. Improper usage is a thing. But I said in April there is no way to create medical grade standards with face coverings.
What if coddling our God-given immune system in an unnatural way is a bad idea? What if we’re doing more long-term harm than good? What if we’ve weakened that innate ability to defend ourselves from viruses and bacterias? Not to mention the side effects of masks. Surely you would reason they are not as healthy as the normal functioning mechanism of our lungs expelling our exhaust from our mouth and nose. It is one of our 5 detox pathways.
What if this really isn’t about Covid but is about control? I mean what part of this year doesn’t feel staged to you? Seriously? Just a bunch of random events colliding. I can’t ignore the evidence that says Covid didn’t just happen. Riots and looting didn’t just happen. Or better yet, start and stop at exacting times. Election shenanigans didn’t just happen. I worry that Covid has ushered in an acceptance of Communist and Marxist ideologies. There seems to be an agenda if you’re at all awake.
You too Can be a Critical Thinker
Hopefully you ask yourself questions like this daily. I know I do. Why accept something because the media says it? Why not question the status quo?
I believe we’ve turned a corner and reached a point where believing masks are good requires a large dose of blind faith. No significant studies show it. The disclaimers on the mask box say they don’t work against viruses. The huge spike it cases with high compliance says they don’t work. The high percentage of positive cases for states reporting mask compliance is a kick in the shorts for believers. Add to that the experts flip flopping across the board and I need far less faith to believe they don’t work.
Regardless of the debate, I’m for the freedom to make this decision for me and mine. On that we’ll probably disagree. Peace
