In the iconic 1999 Bruce Willis movie, Sixth Sense, a psychiatrist (played by Willis) counsels a child who says he can see dead people. In fact, Willis is the dead person the boy sees.
I see zombies. Living (sort of) people who are still walking around with a “mask” on their faces. Without being made to. In the absence of any “mandates” to. In the presence of nine-to-one not wearing one and sometimes, more than that. Wearing them outside. Alone, in their cars.
I want to ask them why they see the need to continue wearing them.
One assumes these people have been “vaccinated.” Probably several times by now. Anyone wants the shots has had plenty of time and opportunity to get them. Given that, why do they continue to wear the “mask”? Isn’t it like wearing a life preserver after you get off the boat, onto dry land?
Does it not say something about their faith in the “vaccines”?
What will it take to get these zombies to un-zombie? It is among the great questions of our time – almost as important to divine an answer to as the why it is in the interests of Americans to support a war with nuclear-armed Russia over Keeeeeeeeev. A less important question being, has Chicken Kiev been renamed on menus?
Like Beijing Duck?
In the past, it was not considered nice to make fun of people with an obvious disturbance of the mind. This included even men who wore dresses, because in those days (which wasn’t so many days ago, when you stop to think about it) most of the few men who did wear dresses did not affect the pose that they actually were women, much less demand they be acknowledged as such. And so, most were left in peace – as was right and proper.
Same went for the mumbling – sometimes, shouting – schizophrenics one sometimes encountered at traffic lights, armed with squeegees. Or over whom it was necessary to step in order to proceed down the sidewalk. These were regarded as afflicted people and there but for the grace of God go I.
But these afflicted are different. Chiefly because they do not consider themselves so and also because they are still many. There are millions of them still on the loose and many of them are also mumbling behind their “masks” – about the non-Zombies they see all around them.
They are able to get away with this because we allow it to pass without comment. Without the necessary derision it requires to render the wearing of a “mask” in public something shameful and embarrassing, of a piece with the wearing of a Nazi armband and the having of a wet brown stain on the backside of one’s pants.
The two things together conveying, on the one hand, the affirmation/support for a mass psychosis that summoned a degree of authoritarianism never before seen in Western, heretofore generally civilized, countries such as the United States and the loathsomeness of those who cheered it on as fervently as the assembled mob at a Reichspartietag in Nuremberg.
Such people are deserving of healthy ridicule – not for their sake, but for ours. To purge this country of tolerance for the attempted normalization of pathological behavior. To make it clear that pathological behavior will not pass without comment. That if you want to behave like a belligerent, in-our-faces freak, expect to be treated like a freak.
The failure to do so has resulted in more than just “masking.” It has furthered along other, just as dangerous pathologies – including this business of tolerating the presence of men with penises who insist they have ovaries because they feel they do in women’s locker rooms and on women’s sports teams. These freaks also need a healthy shouting down – once again, for our sakes.
For our sanity.
If it is done, then the freaks will go back to the sideshow where they belong; the zombies will retreat to the dark recesses of freeway overpasses and dank basements – and we’ll be able to see a normal world, again.
So, gather up the courage to say something. To snicker. To bleat, even. Let them know that you know.
And that you aren’t going to let them get away with it.
