Masks work! -but only as tools for institutionalized tyranny


There are some really enormous elephants in the middle of our living rooms.  We are living in an alternate universe where people are making believe there is a deadly virus for which all healthy people in the entire western world must upend their lives, give up their arrogant, power-mad, Leftist bureaucrats.

Those who comply, do so either under duress or out of ignorance. They mutter under their breaths about how stupid it is but they have to do as they’re told or they’ll lose their job, lose their licenses or lose their friends. Duress comes in all shapes and sizes but it’s still bullying and intimidation.

How did America get such a quick glimpse into what life is like in communist China in less than a year? -but out of duress, I digress.

Take a look at the following piece— so potentially ”dangerous,” that Jack Dorsey,

Mark Zuckerberg and others don’t think we should be allowed to read it:

New Danish study reveals that wearing masks don’t stop the transmission of the coronavirus

Who hasn’t already thought about this, read about it or decided this is true but they don’t think there’s anything they can do about it?

So why is every Democrat so in love with forcing people to wear masks, everywhere, indefinitely, and under threat of fines and punishment?  Who’s paying for the endless television commercials infantilizing us and demanding that we wear masks and wash our hands?  Why does every Democrat march in lockstep with every other Democrat in the same smug mission to force everyone to wear a piece of worthless cloth on their face?  Finally, how come we’re beginning to hear that masks are here to stay regardless of the supposed reason for them in the first place?

I heard a story recently that illustrates the real effect of masks better than any mere explanation. A young man came from a county of strict mask mandates, to a county where people have not lost their minds. He saw people acting like free citizens, enjoying each other’s company without masks on their faces!  He wanted to take his mask off, but was actually terrified to do this. He said it made him feel “naked.”

Remember what Red said in The Shawshank Redemption?

“These walls are funny. First you hate ’em, then you get used to ’em. Enough time passes, you get so you depend on them. That’s institutionalized.”

Masks are tools of institutionalized tyranny. Compliance with tyranny leads to more and greater tyranny.  Why is anyone still playing along?

  1. The question is: why aren’t Trumpers better organized NOW?

    First, they foolishly thought all Republican were on their side…blind to Benedict Arnolds like John Cain, Mitt Romney, Paul Ryan, etc.

    Second, men continue to think organizing is for sissies. Yet they’re they same men who would never fight solo to protect the Second Amendment. They know they need an NRA-size group advocating for them.

  2. The purpose of the masks are to groom the population into following their orders, which will be increasingly tyrannical throughout the next year. Eventually there will be in travel allowed, no bank accounts, no legal visits to friends/family, no freedom whatsoever unless you conform to their vaccination and tracking demands, and the few of us who resist will eventually be taken to the covid camps to be detained indefinitely, or property taken in spite of our refusal to get on board. The long game is global authoritarianism. These people are psychopaths and they want total control over humanity. And it will not stop with the end to private property. Eventually anyone not useful to them will be taken out of the cities and interned indefinitely in the detention centers, to be quietly disposed of after a certain amount of time. Why is this happening? The internet. The rise of the internet is analogous to the rise of the printing press, which caused a similar authoritarian reaction in the old power structures that depended on mass ignorance and the inability for new ideas to spread. The internet is the printing press x 1000. When we successfully wrested power from their scaly claws in 2016, they went into panic mode. We are now in an accelerated plan to convert the entire world into CCP style tyranny, and so far it’s working very well. Most people are not resisting, not questioning, and even helping them identify and punish those who question the masks, social distancing, travel restrictions, etc. This is a very bad situation and unless we can get very organized and fight back in extraordinary numbers we’re in big trouble.
