How Mandated Mask Wearing was Introduced
The wearing of masks by the common person was NOT recommended by the CDC back in March 2020, when the Coronavirus Covid-19 first started to spread in the USA and across the world.
In fact, the chief advisor Dr. Fauci specifically stated in March that people that do not have the sickness and do not display any symptoms need not wear a mask. He advised in an interview that only medical professionals in a hospital setting need wear a mask, or someone with symptoms.
That advice changed in med year when the CDC began recommending that everyone wear a mask to “slow the spread”. And since medical grade N95 masks were in short supply, the CDC announced that the masks can be cloth, do-it-yourself masks. So, suddenly mask wearing became a political tool – since the effect would not be the same of only some wore a mask. Indeed, everyone should wear a mask.
Lets cover this issue by examining these key points:
- Do masks really prevent the spread of a Covid-19? What does the science say?
- If DIY cloth masks don’t work, then why are we being mandated to wear them everywhere we go?
- Should SHOULD be the policy regarding the wearing of masks?
- Are there harmful psychological effects of wearing masks on a society?
Do masks work? What does the science say?
Despite the popular insistence that has since emerged that masking is essential outside one’s home, there remain reasons to doubt their effectiveness, such as the CDC’s September acknowledgement that masks cannot be counted on to keep out the coronavirus when spending 15 minutes or longer within six feet of someone, or a May 2020 study published by CDC’s peer-reviewed journal Emerging Infectious Diseases
“Disposable medical masks (also known as surgical masks) are loose-fitting devices that were designed to be worn by medical personnel to protect accidental contamination of patient wounds, and to protect the wearer against splashes or sprays of bodily fluids (36). There is limited evidence for their effectiveness in preventing influenza virus transmission either when worn by the infected person for source control or when worn by uninfected persons to reduce exposure. Our systematic review found no significant effect of face masks on transmission of laboratory-confirmed influenza.”

Why Are We Being Mandated to Wear Masks (face coverings)?
Dec 22, 2020 – Requiring Americans to wear masks in public spaces is “all about submission,” not science, Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) said over the weekend in his latest remarks against overreach in COVID-19 response measures.
“It’d be one thing if we were told you have to give up your liberty, you have to give up your freedom, we’re going to save your life. But what if you have to give up all your freedoms and they’re wrong on the science?” Paul told Breitbart’s Alex Marlow during Turning Point USA’s Student Action Summit. “Every one of the mandates — and you look in country after country, state after state — you look at when the mask mandates went in — the incidents went up exponentially after the mandates.”
Does Mask Wearing cause Harmful Effects to Society?
According to an article by Steven Kokx, dated Dec 16th, 2020, COVID masks are programming us to hate other people and to treat them as sub-human. Masks disallow us from seeing other people smile, one of the most pleasurable things the human eye can observe.
Kokx feels there’s clearly some sort of shift happening to human beings at a subconscious level with all this mask-wearing. It’s complex, but here’s what I think is going on.
- Firstly, wearing a mask is how you show that you’re “in the club.” Masks indicate that you’re “following the science” and that you’re a part of the majority and superior to those who don’t wear one. There’s a sort of collective brainwashing going on that’s teaching people to hate those who aren’t “in the club.”
- Second, wearing a mask is a form of virtue-signaling. It shows I’m “doing my part” to help protect others – and if you are NOT wearing a mask, well shame on you! This has come to be known as “mask shaming“. It’s a sort of secular work of mercy, a pinch of incense, if you will, demanded by the state religion of liberalism.
- Third, masks hide our faces. Now, why does that matter? Because by not seeing other people’s faces, you can’t see anyone’s emotions. You can’t see, in other words, them smiling and laughing, two thing that make us uniquely human and are some of the most pleasurable things the human eye can observe. Masks also discourage small talk and seem to disincline us from giving compliments to someone about their appearance. Moreover, they disallow us from flashing a smile to an overjoyed infant sitting in their mom’s shopping cart in the check-out lane. What a sad thing that we can’t smile back at happy children anymore.
This mandate to force everyone to wear masks at all times are turning us into trans-humanist robots. They’re making us view and treat other people as sub-humans, which is contrary to what God created us to be, and how our Creator would like us to treat one another – with love, kindness, and compassion.
