Many people are in a life and death struggle with Sickness Psychosis. Or at least, an economic struggle with it. They face the choice of effacing their face – by placing a Diaper over their faces at work – or losing their jobs.
Many employers have become dispensers of medical advice you cannot refuse. Soon, probably, they’ll be requiring flea collars for all and codpieces for men, too.
It’s just as sick as requiring healthy employees to play-pretend they are sick (and make them more likely to get sick) via the forced wearing of an item meant to cover the faces of sick people, generally in a hospital setting.
Well, so it was, once upon a time (six months ago) before Sickness Psychosis infected the country).
At any rate, some people are asserting their healthiness – mentally as well as physically – by refusing to pretend they are sick and refusing to be part of spreading mental sickness by refusing to wear a Face Diaper just because their employer has ordered it.
On more or less the same moral basis that they’d refuse to wear an armband, say.
But refusing to join the party is a firing offense in sickness-afflicted America.
So be it.
A woman I know refused to degrade herself – and others – by pretending she is sick and that sickness is everywhere, by playing her part in the visual maintenance of terror necessary to the perpetuation of Sickness Psychosis.
She refused the order to wear a (not her) Diaper.
This order is probably illegal – if the law mattered. The law is that an employer cannot force an employee to wear a Face Diaper anymore than it can force an employee to wear an armband. But Gesundheitsfuhrers have trumped the law by claiming an “emergency” in perpetuity and by claiming (without establishing) it is a threat to public health for healthy people to not wear a Face Diaper.
Another Diaper Dissenter received the following from the office of the attorney general of the state of Pennsylvania:
“The novel coronavirus poses a grave public health threat, requiring all of us to do our part to slow and ultimately stop its spread. Importantly, this includes persons who do not believe that they have the virus, given that the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) has concluded that “we now know from recent studies that a significant portion of individuals with coronavirus lack symptoms (“asymptomatic”) and that even those who eventually develop symptoms (“pre-symptomatic”) can transmit the virus to others before showing symptoms.”
Note the incoherence – as well as the sick assertions – italicized to emphasis the pathology. “Requiring all of us to do our part”? According to what law? Did the legislature of Pennsylvania pass a Requiring All Of Us To Do Our Part law? Where in this law is the subsection defining – as laws generally do – exactly what “our part” is?
Then there is the topsy-turvy business about “persons who do not believe they have the virus.” As opposed to Gesundheitsfuhrers who believe they do – absent any evidence for said belief. Laws generally require the adducing of evidence to establish guilt before consequence ensue.
The Gesundheitsfuhrer’s orders efface that standard and replace it with a new one – that of belief.
There being no evidence that “asymptomatic” people – that is to say, not sick people – can spread a sickness they haven’t got.
As evidenced by the absence of any sign of sickness.
The Gesundheitsfuher’s letter went on to deny the supplicant’s appeal for relief under the Americans With Disabilities Act (ADA) and other laws that he not be forced to Face Diaper:
The Gesundheithsfuhrers have acquired the same limitless power to decree in lieu of law in my state – Virginia – as well as other states. Put simply, submit to any degradation ritual we say you will submit to – or be shown the door.
My friend (and the supplicant above, another friend) was shown the door. Which opened up a new door.
She now works for herself doing work that doesn’t require degrading herself. Such work is almost always available, if a person is willing to work. It may not pay as well in dollars, but it is highly remunerative in terms of being healthy – both mentally and physically. The boost one gets from not submitting is much more powerful than any flu shot – and far less dangerous to your health.
Ditto the not Diapering. The people who do are very likely – there being evidence for this – to become sick and to be more sick because they wore a Diaper, which increases the prospects of sickness by decreasing the effectiveness of the victim’s immune system and by increasing the percentage of not-healthy gasses in their blood, by restricting the flow of the healthy one (oxygen).
This is not a matter of belief.
But it runs counter to the ritual of submission – which everyone, so the Gesundheitsfuhrers expect – will submit to.
In order to lay the groundwork for future and far more degrading – and unhealthy – submissions.
Understand that. Once you do, you will realize that a job isn’t worth it.
And your are not alone. Resistance is spreading.
