In my last report, I mentioned looking into a new “memory care” facility for my mom. The term refers to places that care for those with advanced dementia/Alzheimer’s. My mom has one or the other (it’s hard to establish which, apparently, but the symptoms are similar).
The facility she’s in isn’t the greatest, except in one way. It has a look-the-other-way policy about “masks.” I have been able to enter and visit my mom without being told I must participate in Sick Kabuki in order to be allowed to see her. Even the doctor only “masks” perfunctorily.
Well, I was considering moving her to a different facility – one that’s a bit nicer and has things like an aquarium for the people living there to look at. At my mom’s current place, there is just one single TeeeeVeeee in a common room. There are also some other things I won’t go into in detail. Suffice to say I thought it would be good to find her a nicer place.
And I did. But here’s the dilemma:
The new place – like most of these places – maintains an Extreme Face Diapering Regime (see image embedded with this Report). A “Face Covering” is REQUIRED AT ALL TIMES. The ALL CAPS are theirs. “Visitors will be asked to leave if face coverings are removed.” And that’s not all. “SOCIAL DISTANCING REQUIRED AT ALL TIMES.” Once again, the ALL CAPS are all theirs. “Visitors must remain behind the marked spot.”
And so I will remain away. So will my mom.
It is also why many are staying away from doctors’ offices and hospitals, where the Sick Cult continues to enforce its bizarre rituals as a condition of entry. There is sick irony in this. How many people have actually died – as opposed to possibly catching a cold – because they didn’t go to the doctor’s or a hospital on account of not wanting to be made to perform these weird – these evil – rituals? They delayed – or were not allowed – and got really sick.
Remember how they “locked down” the hospitals at the height of the mania? Denied care to people who were actually sick – some of them seriously – in order to “stop the spread” of a sickness that for most people amounted to a nasty cold, if they got even that?
And this regime is still largely in place – and at just the places where you’d think it would have been dismantled first. The places where – as they say – The Science determines what is done. Well, we all know what the actual science says about “face coverings.” That is to say, about the medical efficacy of pulling up a neck scarf or using a bandana to “cover” your face. Or using a made-in-Chyna “mask” that doesn’t even claim to prevent the wearer from receiving or giving airborne respiratory cooties.
It says the opposite, right there on the box.
But they still insist people place these medically useless things over their faces as a condition of being allowed within. Because these “coverings” are extremely useful – in terms of establishing Who’s Boss. That you are not in charge. By making you do as they say.
Specifically, by making you do something you (as well as they) know to be absurd. That is the point of the thing, you see. If they can make you stand on one foot and hop around the room while whooping like an Indian war chief – and that’s essentially what they are doing by making you “mask” – they know they can make you do anything.
It is Theater of the Absurd for a reason.
What the “health care” apparat wants is unquestioning obedience. To everything – to anything – they say. It goes light-years beyond this business of wearing a stupid rag over your face and being made to look (and feel) like an idiot, which is bad enough. It is about establishing the precedent that “doctor’s orders” aren’t debatable.
These “health care” apparatchiks are already de facto agents of the state, enforcing its “mandates” lustily. Even before the “pandemic” they had begun collecting information about us the state is very interested in having, such as whether a patient owns firearms (and how many). This having as much to do with medicine as a medicine man.
They “share” – as it’s styled – private information about you and whatever ails you with the insurance mafia, another arm of the apparat.
All for your own good, of course.
They want to be very sure you “take your meds” – whatever they prescribe – and if you question this, “recalcitrant patient” will be noted in your file. It is all-but-certain that, as this business etiolates, failure to “take your meds” will result in a Hut! Hut! Hut!
That is ultimately what “masking” is all about. It is far from absurd, when it is understood.
The only way out is to have as little to do with these apparatchiks and their apparat as possible, even if it means not seeing the doctor or the inside of a hospital ever again. Whatever might happen to you is not as bad as what will happen to you, if you play their sick game.
For myself, it also means not moving my mom. And if the place where she is resumes the Sick Kabuki, I have accepted I may never see her again. For I will not “mask,” ever.
And never have, either.
If more hadn’t, it is probable none of this would have happened. The fact that it is still happening is the price we’re all of us paying for all of this “masking.” If you’re tired of it . . . if you want it to stop . . . if you want it to never happen again . . . resolve to never “mask” again, too.
Not for any reason, ever again.
