    Thank goodness! I was getting all tired of wearing a mask to buy groceries. Glad someone finally pointed out this world-wide pandemic is really an American Democratic plot to discredit Donald Trump. I'm a little surprised they got China to go along with it, but whatever, I won't question it.

    The hoax is the lock down they substaitate by inflated numbers, fear porn news media sensationalism, and corrupt politicians under criminal investigation desperate to get unsecurable voting methods into place. The virus is a convenient reality, an excuse or opportunity. After all: "Never allow a crisis to go to waste."

    I feel like some people are really black & white thinkers in regards to the pandemic, forcing closures of businesses, when accommodations could be made to ensure a level of safety... And I think that mindframe is based on political expectations within a group-think state of mind.

    ...But the virus itself is a real thing.

    Is the lockdown in Italy or Spain a democrat hoax? Is the Canadian one a liberal hoax?

    When does the hoax stop and reality start back up?

    Brexit, Yellow Vests, Hong Kong protests, M5s, etc.... there are populist movements against the establishment ongoing around the globe. How do the globalists regain control?

    The biggest problem is the contrarian attitude of many toward the dictates of the authorities. I was in a convenience store the other day. Of the 8 or so clerks and the dozen or so customers I was the only one wearing a mask.

    That's because you were the only one acting intelligently.

    I would assume you believe only you were in the right? By that logic, you were the sole victor. You are the only winner in that scenario. Be happy you are smarter than other people, and keep keeping safe.

    I was appalled by the other's lack of concern for themselves and others. There was no victory there.

    Does it give people a sense of purpose to wear a mask? Maybe they feel morally superior or empowered concerning those who do not? Do they feel they are a better person than them? Because if so, that is right in line with behavioral modification thru social conditioning. "Herd mindset".

    Maybe they should shame individuals that do not do what is 'correct' like they do, or even turn them in to the authorities to teach them a lesson.

    Social... conditioning... 'If I do not do as others do, I am bad. If others do not do as I do, they are bad and need to be punished.'


    Meanwhile I will follow what professionals say:



    Dr. Anthony Fauci says no one should be walking around in masks

    First of all, this quote is from the beginning of March. Dr Fauci has changed his mind and spoken about the necessity of everyone wearing a mask and "social distancing". If you think that one sentence from the pandemic is enough to have you follow your own conclusion, have at it and good luck. But stop spreading misleading, dangerous propaganda.

    One thing that people that resist COVID-19 safety measures have in common: they are putting their lives and the lives of others at risk. I for one want to live out my full life span. I don't need to go to a bar or a (dumb) protest or get a haircut, and most of all I want to keep myself and others safe and well.

    Love your neighbor as yourself.

    Did the efficacy of masks change since march? Because I swear he is not the only one that has said they do not keep healthy people safe. "it just makes people feel safe" (paraphrase)

    Come on now... how is a person like myself going to harm someone locked up in their home or wearing PPE? They will do just fine following what they believe will keep them safe. To them, all I am is the idiot they are smarter than. They will be just fine in their gloves, masks, face shields, and locked down from society in their homes.

    Herd mindset is potentially very dangerous. It's a part of the lower end of cognitive skills.

    ...To increase the disastrous effects of herd mindset is to add uniform clothing, as odd as that may seem -but it has been proven:

    I do feel morally superior to most others, but I wouldn't go so far as to turn them in to the authorities. I just avoid them if possible. :D

    That is your onuis before God. I honestly forgive your judgement.

    I do not think I am better than anyone. I just hope with reason and logic, I may be able to get some to see past the delusions. My goal is to warn people. Not judge them.

    Except that the COVID-19 numbers appear understated and the fear-mongering is now coming from people claiming the shutdowns will be worse than the pandemic.

    I just think, "I don't want to get sick." It's not any more complicated than that.

    You said, "how is a person like myself going to harm someone locked up in their home or wearing PPE?"; a ridiculous statement to put it mildly. I don't wear a mask inside my own home but I always wear one when I go out, for the safety of others as well as myself.

    If you get COVID-19 through your own lack of safe protection and/or give it to others, possibly killing them, what will you say then?

    Better safe than sorry ... or dead.

    Then protect yourself. Do what you feel is needed to keep yourself safe. And all is good in the world.
