Always Walk Proudly Unmasked & Always Push Back When Asked for a Doctor’s Note – LewRockwell

Posted by M. C. on July 13, 2021

A lot of people don’t realize the ill of communism in their own life until it is too late to stop it. Most people don’t ever realize the ill of communism in their life. I say “most” intentionally, because it is entirely possible that the majority of people may not be able to ever see why communism is so bad. They just don’t have the capacity. That’s true in many times and places. That’s an important reason not to waste time on most people. Time is too short. Spend time on what matters as much as possible. There are people in the millions and likely in the billions who cannot string together a logical sentence on why communism is bad for them. Please avoid the urge to obsess over them. Your well-educated and generally rational doctor may be one of them.

Good morning Allan,

I have been reading your posts on LewRockwell.com and have been trying to navigate the mask policy at work with your advice. I believe that I am in a unique situation regarding workplace masking.

I work for a government contractor but receive my paychecks from a much smaller subcontractor. In short, my employer, who is based out of state, sets different guidelines than the company that controls the facility at which I am located. 

My employer has required that all employees receive the COVID-19 “vaccine” and prove that they have done so, but I have requested an exemption. The facility I work at has allowed those who have been vaccinated (with no proof) to unmask themselves. This has left me in a situation where I am one of only a handful of people who are still “required” to wear a face mask. I obliged for a couple of weeks, but just this past week I decided to start taking my mask off. At this point in time, no one has said a word to me about not wearing a mask.

To wrap this up, I guess my question is, do you think it is wise to continue flying under the radar? Or should I still request a face mask exemption from my employer? There does not seem to be an official facemask policy – at least from a legal document standpoint. I could be wrong, but I do not want to stir any pots that do not need stirring. 

My hesitation is that my vaccine exemption has been sent to leadership, has been acknowledged, but has neither been approved nor denied. I’m assuming at this point that it is just going to be ignored, which is a good thing in my book, but on the off chance it does not get approved, I am concerned I may be pushing the envelope by sending any additional accomodations.

I am sure you are likely inundated with these types of emails, so if you can find the time to reply to this one it would be greatly appreciated!

Very respectfully,

An Unmasked Man 

Dear Unmasked Man,

I would say that you are not only “trying” to navigate the mask policy at work, but you are succeeding at navigating the policy. Thank you for that. Trying matters little, ultimately succeeding matters a great deal. Short term, many battles can be lost, long term success can still be assured. The difference between the two is having the will to make sure success happens. Thank you for assuring that success. I am without a doubt certain that your success in such endeavors ripples out in ways neither of us can never imagine.
