There is good news to report. Even in “hot spots” of weaponized hypochondria – such as Los Angeles – renewed attempts to re-impose the “mandatory” wearing of “masks” are failing. Localities there such as Beverly Hills – one of the previously hottest spots – have said they will not enforce any such “mandates.”
This is spreading.
It is not because these localities do not want to enforce these “mandates.” It is solely because the mass consent necessary to such enforcement no longer exists – and they know that in the face of any attempt to once again “mandate” the wearing of “masks,” too many people would show their faces, instead.
Resistance is not futile.
Even the most authoritarian regimes require mass compliance, which is used to foster the impression that everyone – or at least, almost everyone – not only accepts what is going on but consents to it. This is why there were “mandates” to “mask” in the first place. So as to make it appear that everyone – well, practically everyone – agreed with the narrative that a “pandemic” was afoot – as opposed to a bad cold that could be bad news for the very elderly and the already very sick, as bad colds have always been for the very elderly and the already very sick.
The sight of everyone – well, almost everyone – wearing a “mask” wherever one went made it look like there was a “pandemic.” Just the same as everyone in Germany wearing an armband made it look like everyone agreed with the bug-eyed gesticulator styled the “fuhrer.”
The outward appearance of agreement – of uniformity – is essential to such mass manipulations. It is a key component of the mass psychosis upon which the latter depends. It is very hard for the individual to believe he is not alone when all he sees is what appears to be mass agreement.
There is an old photograph – taken during the days when everyone, just about, was wearing an armband – and raising their arms.
In the crowd of armband-wearers and arm-raisers, there can be seen one man who wasn’t wearing – or raising. It took immense courage for this man to display his lack of agreement among all those who looked like they did agree.
By doing so, he showed that not everyone agreed.
He may and probably did give courage to others who did not agree but were perhaps afraid to show it.
Just so last time, when the “mandates” were first imposed. The things manipulating the masses knew it was vital to confect the appearance of mass agreement. But the “mandates” did not succeed in getting everyone to “mask.” There were people like the man in the old photograph.
Enough to show that “masking” wasn’t “working” – in the sense that the wearing of these things either prevented people from catching a cold or spreading the cold to others. The people who didn’t “mask” – in spite of the “mandates” – didn’t catch cold or if they did, it was just a cold and they got better. The “masked” who knew these people saw that. It had to have made an impression on some of them – just as it probably made an impression on some of the hens who looked up and saw the sky was not falling.
It is why so much effort was devoted to making states like Florida – where most people outside of Miami weren’t “masking – and weren’t catching cold any more than those in places where almost everyone was “masked up,” as the sickos pushing this business like to style their obedience training.
Speaking of “masks” not “working” . . . except as a tool of mass manipulation – is it not telling that, months after the “mandate” to wear the things on commercial flights and in government-controlled airports was set aside by a federal judge, the un-“masked” aren’t catching colds any more than the “masked” were when the wearing of “masks” was “mandated”?
How about this business of both of the things pushing hard for “masks” – and wearing them – catching colds, in spite of the things? The Biden Thing and the Fauci Thing also took (so they claim) the “95 percent effective” drugs styled “vaccines” they also claimed would all-but-assure the taker would not get. And yet they caught cold. Twice.
Do you suppose people have begun to notice?
Of course, the other people – those things – also wonder . . . how they will get people to “mask up” again when they know many won’t, this time. Too many people like that man in the old photograph will not pretend to agree with what they now know to be not only false but malicious. And that is why, even in some of the very hottest spots in the country – such as LA County – the things-in-charge aren’t pressing their “case” . . . for the moment. They know there would be too much – and too obvious – mass disagreement and that it could lead to something far worse than people refusing to wear a “mask.”
The game is almost over.
It doesn’t necessarily mean we’ve won. But it also does not mean we’ve lost. The distinction is an important one.
Never forget the man in the old photograph.
One man can make all the difference.
