“Masks” do “work” – extremely well – contrary to the findings of the latest peer-reviewed study out England, published by the Cochrane Database of Systematic Reviews. The evidence that they “work” can be seen almost anywhere.
Just go to a supermarket.
It is just a matter of defining how they “work.”
The science fiction writer Robert Heinlein can assist our understanding via his book, The Puppet Masters. In it, people are controlled by alien slugs that affix themselves to people’s backs – just below the shoulder blades, at the base of the neck. The slugs hijack the victim’s mind and “ride” his body. A man or woman who is being ridden by a slug can be identified by the hump on their backs, just below the neckline – in between the shoulder blades. The occupied person does what the slug wants done. But – otherwise – the people seem to be the same people, who go about their jobs and so on as if they were in fact still the same people.
Millions of people become the slaves of the slugs in this manner. A handful of people figure out what’s going on and fight tenaciously to defeat the slugs – which is chiefly accomplished by doing whatever it takes to make sure a slug never rides them.
This is how “masks” worked – and they have worked exceptionally well. The very real puppet masters – Fauci, Brix, Wolensky, et al – used them to “ride” hundreds of millions of people, getting them to do their bidding without the ridden even realizing it. They placed “slugs” – as it were – on their own “backs” (also as it were) and their own children’s, even.
Many of these people are still being “ridden” – and remain under the control of the puppet masters.
You can see it on their faces. Well, if you could see their faces.
Even in the face of admissions, such as the following excerpt from the study mentioned above:
“We included 12 trials (10 cluster‐RCTs) comparing medical/surgical masks versus no masks to prevent the spread of viral respiratory illness (two trials with healthcare workers and 10 in the community). Wearing masks in the community probably makes little or no difference to the outcome of laboratory-confirmed influenza/SARS-CiV-2 compared to not wearing masks. (RR 1.01, 95% CI 0.72 to 1.42; 6 trials, 13,919 participants; moderate‐certainty evidence). Harms were rarely measured and poorly reported (very low‐certainty evidence).”
The study says nothing about the “effectiveness” of wearing a “mask” outside – or alone in one’s car – as many of the ridden did and some continue to do.
It is not just the throw-away “masks” worn by millions that do not “work” – in the physical health sense – which it didn’t take a study to discover. All that was necessary to know it was to read the boxes these “masks” came in, where it clearly stated that they do not “work” – in terms of preventing the transmission of respiratory sickness.
And neither did the fancier “masks” worn by some that made the wearer look like a homosexual submissive being “pup” trained by his dom. The report just issued confirms this as well, stating: “The pooled results of RCTs did not show a clear reduction in respiratory viral infection with the use of medical/surgical masks. There were no clear differences between the use of medical/surgical masks compared with N95/P2 respirators in healthcare workers when used in routine care to reduce respiratory viral infection.
Many insisted upon it, with the fervency of religious fanatics, which of course is kind of what they had become.
The religious element of “masking” has been observed and commented on by many. The commonalities are obvious as well as related in that faith in “masks” served as a kind of secularized sacrament, a replacement for the religious meaning millions have lost. The “mask” gave them not only comfort but also community. Note the saying, popular at the height of this nation-wide tent-show revival – that “we’re all in this together.”
But there is another aspect of it that is perhaps more interesting. “Masks” were very effective at spreading mental illness – severe hypochondria – chiefly by normalizing it. Just as the wearing of a certain kind of armband was normalized in Germany once-upon-a-time. The more who wore one, the more normal it seemed to wear one. And the more abnormal it seemed to not wear one – to those who were wearing one.
Things will not return to any semblance of normalcy until the sight of a person wearing a “mask” evinces the same reaction in most people as the sight of someone still wearing that armband would have in 1946.
The fact that it is still considered acceptable to “mask” in public – that “mask” wearing is abided in public to any degree – is evidence of just how much work masks have done.
And how much work is still left to do.
