The Gesundheitsfuhrer of Virginia has “mandated” new lockdowns and wearing of the Holy Rag, aka the “mask”- which any old rag qualifies as. Which, you’d think, would make it pretty plain that “masking” isn’t about medicine and maybe people would finally begin to stop “masking” for exactly that reason.
The good news is some are – even after the Gesundheitsfuhrer’s latest “mandates.”
Almost no one at my gym was hiding their face – the real reason for the wearing of a mask – and I saw two other faces at my local supermarket, which isn’t forcing people to hide their faces.
Even the Stalinist sign that used to stand near the front door proclaiming “Masks Must Be Worn” in ominous black block lettering is gone. I shopped without incident and so did several others.
The gym owner, whom I know, isn’t demanding that members perform Sickness Kabuki, either.
After all, you can only tell people they’re going to die for so long before they figure out they’re probably not going to.
Besides which, who wants to stay alive if that’s all we’re allowed to do? Does looking at your family through a Zoom call for the next forever seem like much of a life to you? Get-togethers cause for Hut! Hut! Hutting!?
Your kids looking like Michael Jackson’s kids?
People have bent to the emotional blackmail of performing Sickness Kabuki because they have been pressured into believing they’re doing the right thing. But how can it be a good thing to pretend you’re sick? To expect a country to live like a giant sick ward? To hurt people who haven’t harmed anyone on the mere evil say-so of a Gesundheitsfuhrer?
It’s all pretty sick – and far from being good.
Coronamonomania has been out of control for months but maybe – just maybe – people are beginning to realize that there are other things to worry about besides whether 0.03 percent of the population might die.
Among them the death of life for the other 99.7 percent of the population.
