At the supermarket the other day, there were a few mentally ill people. You could tell them by sight. They were the ones still wearing “masks” – not the Halloween variety.
This is good news in that it becomes very apparent – as it was, just three years ago – that people who wear “masks” (when it isn’t Halloween) are . . mentally ill.
They stand out.
This is how most of us viewed “maskers” before the juggernaut to normalize “masking” by using social and corporate pressure to “mask” almost everyone.
This was meant to normalize mental illness generally. A society driven insane is a society that is easier to control. The mentally ill beg for it – and the sane, too. Chaos being unendurable for the sane.
The people desirous of controlling everything are well aware of these facts and that is why they pushed so hard to drive the country crazy – and continue to do so.
It is no coincidence that others forms of mental illness, such as the belief that sex is fungible based upon belief – and the insistence that others must believe it – etiolated on the heels of mass “masking.” It is even less coincidental that the people who believe sex is fungible based on belief are very often the same people who are still “masking.”
It being very difficult to remain partially sane.
One generally is – or is not.
What’s happened is not merely that the eccentric, the odd, the weird no longer accept that they are. They have been weaponized to hostility against those who know they are. More chaos. More insanity. The latter tending to spread in the fertile soil of the former.
None of this ought not to be surprising given what we have seen all around us over the course of the past three years. It was hard to remain sane during the height of the insanity. Orwell’s character Winston Smith monologued about this solipsism in the novel, 1984. Is sanity statistical, he mused? If everyone believes “x” to be the objective fact, does “x” not become the objective fact? And if it does not, how would one know it?
More to the point, how would one be able to prove it isn’t when no one else believes it?
When “masking” was near-ubiquitous two years ago, it was alarmingly easy for many to question their own sanity. The sight of so many apparently mentally ill people made it harder to regard oneself as not – if one didn’t look like them. Maybe, the harrowing thought creeped in, they are right. Maybe it is sensible to put this thing on, like almost everyone else seems to be doing. Analogy was made to the wearing of pants.
Of course, “masks” are not pants. If you don’t put on the latter, people will see what ought to be kept to oneself. Something real that ought to be kept to oneself. As opposed to the bogeyman virus that wasn’t kept to oneself by the intercession of a porous barrier of made-in-China gauze. The proper analogy would have been that wearing a “mask” is like wearing a pair of pants with the crotch cut out of them.
If you saw someone walking around that way, what would you say? What would you think? Probably the same as you ought to think when you see someone still walking around with a “mask” on.
This is salutary – assuming it spreads.
Mental illness cannot be treated before it is diagnosed. And it is impossible to diagnose mental illness when it is not recognized as such, as by comparing it with normalcy. By regarding it as normal.
The sooner derangement returns to being perceived – and treated – as precisely that, the less of it there will be.
