It should be clear that most of these protocols, ie, masks, lockdowns, etc., have been developed and recommended by those who want to minimize risks, ie, infections, hospitalizations, deaths to the exclusion of all other objectives including costs.
Our politicians and much of the public have gone along with these recommendations without questioning whether these ‘recommendations’ are justified.
Their science is just that, their science and it has nothing to do with science. Controlling the masses
The masks have nothing to do with health. This was known since the beginning, when they recommended AGAINST wearing them, and it is known and obvious now. The most locked-down and masked places seem to produce the highest numbers, in fact.
It’s just a symbol. But it’s a very harmful one, both in terms of physical health and social health. It essentially makes even ordinary day-to-day social interaction (chatting at the grocery store, for example) impossible and seriously burdens speech and communication, as well as preventing human facial expression.
It is meant to isolate us and make our social relationships totally dependent on the state rather than other human beings, and to prevent communication between us. I’d say it’s working quite well and the state is never going to willingly let it go.
