Musings about masks

Musings about masks

Masks are symbolic of being gagged, bound, silenced and controlled.

They are obviously bondage and discipline accessories. But there is also sado-masochism involved, because they are restrictive, uncomfortable and unhealthy.

They say "I am submissive and compliant."

They mark people as members of an exclusive gang or tribe that is hostile toward non-members on the basis of fear, self-righteousness and otherness.

Masks strip people of their identity, agency and humanity by making them anonymous.

They serve to alienate people from each other. They dehumanize.

When a person wears a mask, you can't see their face. All you can see is fear, emptiness or resignation in their eyes.

Masks serve to further divorce people from nature by depriving them of the ability to tilt their face to the warm sun, close their eyes, and drink deeply of the cool, life-giving, fresh, scented air.

    Amen, and "Preaching to the Choir and Believers!!"
    I am looking forward to the myriad legal suits, coming, with so many legislators violating soooooo many Civil Rights, without due process!!
    This whole thing was handled HORRIBLY WRONG, and over-reacting on the part of so many, not caring that they are literally DESTROYING their small businesses!!
    RECORD unemployment, worst since the Great Depression!!
    So much is still unknown, yet everyone is being forced to stay at home, like criminals, and NO PROOF they have the virus, without charges, without due process! How is this different than "HOUSE ARREST" except that there was no trial, no judgment of guilt of anything!!
    Congress better get ready for the onslaught of legal suits, and payments for wrecking the lives and businesses of so many, on the 'best guess' of some scientists.

    Is this still revelant?

      Bingo, JackSme. Accepting the best guesses of "some" scientists while discounting studies by scientists with equal or greater expertise. Bottom line, special interests managed to control the narrative. Corruption to the core. It's surprising how few people get it.

      @Lliam I am reading a book by Ben Shapiro, called Bullies, and it seems that some think he is AMAZING, but many, leftist liberals are thinking he is the new "Anti-christ"!
      He is saying, that the Liberals no longer use the "Jack-Boot Thug" approach, but have embraced something like a 'loving, caring, compassionate friend" thing! They want to "protect people" and "keep them safe", uh, yeah, by taking away RIGHTS!! But to keep you safe!!

      Go celebrate your freedom and civil rights by licking some doorknobs.

    Then don’t wear a mask, and don’t apply for jobs at places where you need to wear a mask of any kind in some situations - like medicine, dentistry, factory work, carpentry or wood working, etc. It’s really that simple.

    People make masks out to be bad. But for your health and safety wearing masks is a necessity not an inconvenience.

    You forgot about one thing: they prevent the spread of deadly contagions.

    On the other hand, masks come in handy during a pandemic like COVID-19.
