The Greatest Fear of Those Who Rule Us

Posted by M. C. on February 28, 2021

Those who seek to rule us are afraid of us. They are afraid we see through them. Worse, they are afraid we might find them and their programs laughable. Were it otherwise, they would resort to reason rather than intimidation, thoughtful dialogue rather than fear mongering.

Rush Limbaugh once said, “I don’t think looking at things through the prism of fear is going to accomplish anything.”

By Jeff Minick

Rush Limbaugh passed away on Ash Wednesday at age 70.

I heard that news on the radio after leaving noon services at my church. At first, I felt a profound sadness and a touch of anger. The past year has thrown a barrage of punches at Americans. For those who loved Limbaugh’s program—I only listened sporadically, but enjoyed myself when I did—this was one more left hook delivered in a bleak season.

Yet as I thought about Rush Limbaugh, I also felt a sense of gratitude. Here was a man who brought a conservative voice to millions in our nation, who inspired other announcers to do likewise, and who worked fearlessly for truth almost until the day he died. Day after day his voice resonated on the air, striving to keep conservatism and common sense alive in our nation.

Limbaugh often encouraged his audience to stand up for their beliefs with courage and persistence. Were he on the radio today, I am certain “no fear” would be part of his message.

Before learning of Limbaugh’s death, I had looked around my church and saw visible signs of fear. Children as young as three were wearing masks as protection against COVID-19. Because of the virus, Pope Francis had asked priests worldwide to sprinkle ashes in the hair of their congregants this Ash Wednesday rather than marking their foreheads with the sign of the cross. The priest and deacon of our conservative parish decided to compromise, dipping a Q-tip into the ashes, using that to make the cross on the forehead, and throwing away each Q-tip after usage.

When I see such things, I no longer know what to think. Are we really to believe that making the sign of the cross with ash-bedecked fingers on the foreheads of parishioners will spread the virus?

For 12 months, we have lived under governments, state and federal, that encourage fear in their citizens. We now have vaccines, but we’re told that even those who have received these immunizations must go on wearing masks and practicing social distancing. We know few children under 18 are in danger of death or even sickness from this virus, yet many of our schools remain closed.

Meanwhile, the federal government would have us believe that an army of insurrectionists is waiting to invade Washington D.C., justifying the walls and wire around the Capitol Building and the thousands of National Guard troops standing by to repel an attack. These measures are ridiculous and undoubtedly make us a laughingstock in many foreign capitols, but as with COVID-19, the government wants us to be afraid.

Others outside the government try to rule by fear as well. It seems that every day college students, corporate employees, bloggers, and anyone else in the public eye must be ever more careful of what they say or write for fear they’ll be targeted by a vicious social media mob.

Evil exists in this world, and its practitioners use fear as one of their primary weapons. In C.S. Lewis’s novel That Hideous Strength, totalitarians seek to establish their “utopia” by use of blackmail, threats, and even murder. Only those who are immune to these tactics possess the courage, strength, and conviction to fight against them.

Here’s one thing we need to keep in mind. Those who utilize fear as a tactical weapon are often themselves afraid. They may make their insouciant pronouncements as if they were confident of their positions, but how else do we explain the troops and walls in our capitol? How else are we to regard the attacks on a president now out of office and banned from social media? How else should we interpret a government that operates by executive orders and fiats? If these aren’t examples of anxiety, fear of failure, unease over their positions, and terror over their illegitimacy, then I’m not sure what is.

Those who seek to rule us are afraid of us. They are afraid we see through them. Worse, they are afraid we might find them and their programs laughable. Were it otherwise, they would resort to reason rather than intimidation, thoughtful dialogue rather than fear mongering.

Rush Limbaugh once said, “I don’t think looking at things through the prism of fear is going to accomplish anything.”

We can honor the man and his achievements by standing fearlessly for our principles.

‘This could have been really bad!’ FIERY final lap at Daytona 500 sees 10,000-1 shot McDowell steal 1st ever win (VIDEO) — RT Sport News

Posted by M. C. on February 15, 2021

It is way past time to canned restrictor plate racing.

It is a joke. NASCAR mentality is a joke. Drivers wearing masks while alone in the open bed of a pickup truck. Grabbing your ankles for PC and government sponsorship. None of the drivers appear the least embarrassed.

Change the cars, change the tracks, do something.

I am already done for the year.

https://www.rt.com/sport/515587-dayton-500-horro-crash/

A chaotic final lap crash at Daytona 500 which wiped out race leaders saw 36-year-old veteran Michael McDowell steal through to seal his first ever win at ‘the big one’, after one of the most insane endings to a race ever.

Nascar’s 2021 season opener took place on Sunday with the 63rd running of the Daytona 500 at Daytona International Speedway in Daytona, Florida and ended with a fiery crash that annihilated race leaders and provided one of the biggest upsets in motor racing history.'This could have been really bad!' FIERY final lap at Daytona 500 sees 10,000-1 shot McDowell steal 1st ever win (VIDEO) Reuters / Mark J. Rebilas

With 30,000 fans present, the race was the biggest sporting even since the beginning of the Covid-19 pandemic began in March, and that crowd bore witness to one of the most chaotic final lap crashes ever seen.

The stunning crash occurred on Lap 200 and took out many of the race leaders including number one Joey Logano and McDowell teammate Brad Keselowski, who was prevented for winning the last of the ‘Crown Jewel’ races he’s yet to take home by finishing a disappointing 13th place.

Words just can’t describe this feeling.We won the #DAYTONA500 !! pic.twitter.com/7Q9wmy7oEV— Michael McDowell (@Mc_Driver) February 15, 2021

When the smoke cleared and when the caution flag came out, McDowell was in first place ahead of Chase Elliott, and stole through to seal his first ever NASCAR Cup Series win in 14 seasons and 358 starts, having led the race for the only time after the crash. Fortunately, no one involved in the crash was seriously hurt.

RT

Coincidentally, McDowell, who won the race for Front Row Motorsports, was driving a car sponsored by Love’s Travel Stops & Country Stores, featuring a love heart on the side of his vehicle, having won the race on Valentine’s Day.

McDowell later wrote of his emotions on Twitter: “Words can’t describe this feeling,” while clutching the Harley J. Earl Trophy.

BUSTED on Hot Mic: PA Gov. Wolf and Elected Crony Laughing About Masks as ‘Political Theater’

Posted by M. C. on December 22, 2020

In other words, it’s all a game and you’re the butt of the joke.

My fearless leader.

https://pjmedia.com/news-and-politics/megan-fox/2020/09/29/busted-on-hot-mic-pa-gov-wolf-and-elected-crony-laughing-about-masks-as-political-theater-n986251

By Megan Fox

If this video doesn’t get your blood pressure up after months of being forced to wear masks “for your safety,” then you’re probably dead already from the Chinese WuFlu (or at least that’s what the coroner scribbled on your death certificate).

Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Wolf and Representative Wendy Ullman (D-Bad People) were caught on a hot mic giggling about the “political theater” they were about to partake in at a press conference. Wolf is heard telling Ullman he’s going to take off his mask to speak while Ullman responds that she’s going to keep hers on for the cameras to make sure people see her in it. “I’m waiting so we can do a little political theater,” she says, laughing. “So it’s on camera!”

In other words, it’s all a game and you’re the butt of the joke. Enjoy this sh*tshow while I contemplate throwing a brick through a window somewhere.

Doug Casey on What Happens When the Suspension on Evictions Ends

Posted by M. C. on December 10, 2020

All of these things impinge upon your right to ownership of private property, including your own body, which is the primary form of property.

Wearing a mask—whether or not you want to or think it helps—isn’t just about virtue signaling. It also shows whether you’re willing to do as you’re told—whether you’re “politically reliable”, as the communists like to say. It’s like wearing the Party’s armband.

I have no problem if the owner of a bar or restaurant wants to keep me out if I’m not wearing a mask. It’s his property. He makes the rules. I can go elsewhere, where it suits me better. It’s an affront and an imposition on restaurateurs and storekeepers to be told what they and their guests can and cannot do.

https://internationalman.com/articles/what-happens-when-the-suspension-on-evictions-ends/

by Doug Casey

International Man: Earlier this year, CDC was able to extend its powers unprecedentedly by issuing a nationwide suspension on evictions.

What’s your take on how a public health agency grew to be in the position of telling property owners what they can do on their properties?

Doug Casey: Health paranoia is an excellent method of control. People put their health above almost everything. I’m only surprised it hasn’t been used as a lever up until now. It’s part of a trend toward mass control that has started in earnest early in the 20th century and has been increasing exponentially over time.

First was the income tax. If you didn’t comply, it was not only seen as a legal crime but also promoted as a moral sin. The prohibition of liquor from 1919 to 1933 got under way as a moral failing and then was turned into a crime. It’s the same with the prohibition of some drugs; Nixon started that hysteria in 1971, and it was put on steroids, so to speak, by Nancy Reagan. Next came the war on terror, especially since 2001. These were all promoted with both legal and moral taboos. Everybody is supposed to line up with them shoulder to shoulder, like in one of those old socialist realism propaganda posters the Soviets and the Nazis specialized in. The public is supposed to self-police under the supervision of the authorities, like they did in Salem in 1692.

Public health is the current impetus for mass hysteria and paranoia. All of these things impinge upon your right to ownership of private property, including your own body, which is the primary form of property. The public health angle is potentially the most dangerous and invasive one from the viewpoint of freedom. Busybodies—the type of people who work for and actively support the State—always need an excuse to control others en masse. This pandemic provides an excellent template for the future.

Wearing a mask—whether or not you want to or think it helps—isn’t just about virtue signaling. It also shows whether you’re willing to do as you’re told—whether you’re “politically reliable”, as the communists like to say. It’s like wearing the Party’s armband.

In fact, wearing a mask and social distancing in stores, bars, restaurants, and gymnasiums shouldn’t be up to the government. It should be strictly up to the property owner. Decisions that the individual makes regarding his own health are his own; it’s between the individual and his doctor.

I have no problem if the owner of a bar or restaurant wants to keep me out if I’m not wearing a mask. It’s his property. He makes the rules. I can go elsewhere, where it suits me better. It’s an affront and an imposition on restaurateurs and storekeepers to be told what they and their guests can and cannot do.

This isn’t, incidentally, about a technical or medical problem. The value of wearing masks, social distancing, and obeying quarantines and lockdowns is questionable at best, as Sweden has shown. The real problem is ethical and that there’s no moral pushback from either the public or the property owners. People are arguing on strictly technical grounds: “Yes, you have a right to tell me what to do, and even close my business. But you shouldn’t because it’s not ‘fair’, or your solutions aren’t optimal”. They accept the busybody’s premises. The argument is over before it even begins. Americans are truly acting like whipped dogs.

Whether the masks, distancing, and the rest of it work or not, isn’t the point. My own belief is they’re at best of marginal value and may well be counterproductive. But that’s beside the point. The point is that it’s immoral and destructive for the State to tell people how to relate to each other.

As for the CDC, it’s just another government bureaucracy concerned with putting itself in the limelight, gaining more power, enhancing its budget, and the number of its employees—and making Fauci, a lifelong but previously insignificant swamp creature, into an international celebrity.

International Man: Currently, over 18 million Americans are currently behind on their mortgage or rent payments.

That temporary suspension on evictions ends December 31st. What do you think will happen next?

Doug Casey: Just as with the financial markets, the government has no alternative but to “do something.” They will—they have to—print more money to keep the rotten house of cards from collapsing on itself.

The Democrats have already said that they want to increase the next stimulus to over $3 trillion. The fact that most of the last round of stimulus was either overtly wasted, went to cronies, or can’t be accounted for, is completely lost on them. They recognize that unless they give a lot of money directly or indirectly to the hoi polloi, there are going to be millions of them on the streets.

Approximately 11 million renters and 4 or 5 million mortgagees are now in forbearance. They’ll be kicked out of their houses and apartments come January 1, barring a huge bailout. Where are those people going to go?

If Obama had made good on his ridiculous promise about shovel-ready projects, there’d be a lot more bridges that they could camp out under. But he didn’t. They have a real problem on their hands. Millions of people have been living above their means and have no savings. At this point, if they let landlords and banks kick all those people out, a number of things will happen. Residential property prices will collapse. Millions of people will be scrambling for somewhere to live. Lots of banks and landlords would go bust.

The longer the government kicks the can down the road, the bigger the inevitable bust will be. The stimulus money will have to continue because Biden doesn’t want it all to come unglued on his watch. The State is not only going to have to pay individuals and business owners that their idiotic policies have busted. They’ll be subsidizing banks, landlords, and utility companies—because you can’t live in a house or an apartment without water and electricity.

It’s worse than that because even if you cover the bare essentials, there’s no money leftover for maintenance. There will be millions of buildings across the country suffering from deferred maintenance. The South Bronx, East St. Louis, and Baltimore will be replicated across the country.

And no one’s talking about how to cover the real estate taxes due on these properties. Many local governments are already bankrupt. Their expenses are going way up even while their tax income collapses. The whole country has painted itself into a corner at this point. That’s what happens when you adopt a collectivist economic policy, as the Soviets, the Chinese, and scores of other countries have discovered.

I’m not sure how they’re going to get out of it because the economy itself has just started to collapse. Of course, they’ll print up more money because they see that as a solution when it’s actually a cause. It’s going to worsen the collapse.

International Man: For the tens of millions behind on their mortgage and rent payments, will their back rent and overdue payments ever be repaid?

Doug Casey: The government will not only have to pay the rent for the future, but it’s going to have to cover landlords’ previously unpaid rent—if they don’t want lots of bankrupt landlords and banks.

It will lead to a guaranteed annual income, which they’ve been thinking about for some time. In some cases, the government will take over properties. It’s nothing new. Most major US cities already have significant public housing. None of it’s good, but most isn’t as bad as Cabrini-Greene or Pruitt-Igoe.

Who knows where this daisy chain will lead? With all the unemployed people who can’t pay their rent, perhaps the government will develop something like national service. Then there will be millions more people working for the government, doing god knows what. It will lead to the socialization of society. Remember, this COVID hysteria is just the pin that broke the bubble. The Greater Depression was already in the cards. Americans will beg the government to cure it, which is guaranteed to make it vastly worse and longer-lasting and invite some charismatic authoritarian to be their savior and take charge.

International Man: Assuming the COVID hysteria and lockdowns are behind us in 2021, what lasting effects could we see taking place?

Doug Casey: It’s going to destroy the restaurant, retail, and travel industries all at once.

Stores, restaurants, and small businesses are always failing—maybe 15% of them annually— and new ones are starting up in normal times. It’s the circle of life. The problem is that about half of these businesses are failing all at once. That makes it much harder to recover.

The economy is a lot like a body. If you burn your finger, it hurts, but you’ll recover. But if you suffer burns on over 50% of your body all at once, it might kill you. That’s what we’re looking at right now.

Commercial real estate is another area that is going to be devastated because a lot of people will continue working at home and prefer it over working in an office.

Who knows what’s going to happen to all that commercial real estate and how it’s going to be repurposed. It’s certainly going to consume a huge amount of capital.

Another area that will change is schools. I would have been happy to have a year off from school because classes bored me. I would have read many more things on my own. But today, most kids don’t read books. Public school kids are lucky to absorb a few things by osmosis.

Now they’re mostly playing video games or are on social media—mostly doing nonproductive things on their computers at home. I don’t know the effect of not being able to associate with other kids.

For most kids, it may be damaging. On the bright side, many parents have decided that school is a waste of time and have started homeschooling their kids. That’s generally a positive thing.

Here’s the important thing, we don’t know how long this hysteria is going to last. People are so scared that they’ll be easy to control for fear of the next real or imagined virus that comes down the road. When people are scared and don’t know what to do, they will want somebody to kiss it and make it better.

So, I expect we’re heading towards a genuine strong man for president in the US, whether that’s Kamala Harris or somebody else. If the 2020 election was bad, the 2024 election would be worse.

Editor’s Note: Unfortunately most people have no idea what really happens when a government goes out of control, let alone how to prepare…

The coming economic and political crisis is going to be much worse, much longer, and very different than what we’ve seen in the past.

That’s exactly why New York Times bestselling author Doug Casey and his team just released an urgent new report titled Doug Casey’s Top 7 Predictions for the Raging 2020s.

What Would Happen? – LewRockwell

Posted by M. C. on October 13, 2020

Had governments done nothing in response to the Coronavirus, individuals and businesses would have done much more, and done so without going out of business.

https://www.lewrockwell.com/2020/10/laurence-m-vance/what-would-happen/

By Laurence M. Vance

What would happen—

If kids in all K-12 schools, colleges, and universities went back to school.

If neither teachers nor students wore masks.

If sporting events had spectators.

If stadiums were allowed to fill to capacity.

If football coaches and their staff ceased wearing masks.

If stores removed directional arrows from their floors.

If waiters and waitresses stopped wearing masks.

If cities and counties reopened their parks, playgrounds, and basketball courts.

If restaurant patrons stopped wearing masks when they walked to their table and to the restroom. Propper Men’s BA… Buy New $82.57 (as of 05:56 EDT – Details)

If every place of business removed social distancing lines and circles from their floors.

If all the bars and nightclubs reopened.

If all the gyms reopened.

If family members could visit the elderly in nursing homes.

If all the movie theatres reopened.

If no one wore masks to theatres.

If no one practiced social distancing.

If no one wore masks to amusement parks.

If family members could visit sick relatives in the hospital.

If all concerts resumed.

If people didn’t wear masks on airplanes.

If airlines didn’t block their middle seats.

If people quit wearing masks while bike riding.

If all the churches reopened.

If everyone sang in church.

If churches stopped only seating people in every other pew.

If no one wore a mask to church.

If all lockdowns were lifted.

If grocery stores quit wiping down their carts.

If people stopped washing their hands twenty times a day.

If no government offices did temperature checks.

If all the beaches reopened.

If no one wore face shields.

If no one wore a mask while working out at the gym.

If all curfews were ended. Naicissism Slouchy Bea… Buy New $10.99 (as of 05:56 EDT – Details)

If all barber shops and nail salons reopened.

If Americans all stopped being germaphobes.

If stores removed their plexiglass shields.

If everyone stopped bathing their hands in hand sanitizer throughout the day.

If all the buffets opened back up.

If businesses opened to 100 percent capacity.

If people stopped wearing masks in their car.

If life returned to “normal.”

What would happen? Knowing what we know now about the coronavirus, I can say with confidence that absolutely nothing would happen that has not happened already or will happen in the future if things continue as they are.

John Tamny was exactly right when he wrote back on March 21:

What would have happened on the city, state and national levels if politicians had quite simply done nothing in response to the spreading virus? If so, does anyone seriously think that the death rate would be substantially higher, and that information about this potentially lethal virus wouldn’t have reached a population increasingly connected to the internet all day, and every day?

Had governments done nothing in response to the Coronavirus, individuals and businesses would have done much more, and done so without going out of business.

The cure for the coronavirus is truly much worse than the disease.

Is evidence masks don’t work being purged from the internet? – OffGuardian

Posted by M. C. on September 24, 2020

It’s hard to say exactly when the article was taken down, but the Wayback Machine shows it to be intact on 25th of June, simply missing from July 2nd-9th, and replaced with the current statement on July 10th.

Fortunately once something is on the internet it is there forever, and you can view an archived version of the article here.

The press is free. Just some are more free than others.

https://off-guardian.org/2020/09/23/is-evidence-masks-dont-work-being-purged-from-the-internet/

Kit Knightly

The dentistry journal Oral Health Group has removed a research paper from its website which found masks do not work to halt the spread of disease. They claim the paper is “no longer relevant in the current climate”.

The article – “Why Face Masks Don’t Work: A Revealing Review” – has been used as a source before by us before (see here), and was a great collation of all the research studies done on the effectiveness of masks as a disease prevention tool. In general it found the evidence suggested masks have little to no value as infection preventatives.

The author, John Hardie (BDS, MSc, PhD, FRCDC), is a 30-year veteran of dental practice, specialising in infection control. The paper had over 30 references and sources from academic journals and peer-reviewed studies.

It’s hard to say exactly when the article was taken down, but the Wayback Machine shows it to be intact on 25th of June, simply missing from July 2nd-9th, and replaced with the current statement on July 10th.

Fortunately once something is on the internet it is there forever, and you can view an archived version of the article here.

The statement itself is worth reading, not for what it says so much as what it doesn’t say:

If you are looking for “Why Face Masks Don’t Work: A Revealing Review” by John Hardie, BDS, MSc, PhD, FRCDC, it has been removed. The content was published in 2016 and is no longer relevant in our current climate.

Note it doesn’t say the work was “inaccurate” or “factually incorrect”, only that it is “no longer relevant in our current climate”. It also doesn’t say if it was taken down at the author’s request, or that he has formally repudiated his work.

This is not the first time evidence that masks don’t work has been removed from the internet.

Dr Denis Rancourt put together an evidentiary review titled “Masks Don’t Work: A review of science relevant to COVID-19 social policy” back in April. It received over 400,000 views on ResearchGate before being removed.

The justification for the removal was that it was “spreading information which may cause harm”.

Again, note the language. Not “false information” or “factually incorrect information” only “information which may cause harm”. Nobody (thus far) is disputing the method of the work, or the accuracy of the findings.

If thorough research “may cause you harm”, what does that really say about you? If truth doesn’t fit the “current climate”…what does that say about our climate?

This is an interesting situation, one that bears further investigation.

We have contacted the Oral Health Group editorial team for comment, and will update if/when they reply. We are also seeking contact information for Dr John Hardie.

The Case For Lockdowns, Masks, School Closures, ‘Distancing’ Has Just Collapsed

Posted by M. C. on August 21, 2020

The whole narrative is falling apart. New studies every day are proving beyond a doubt that the measures taken worldwide – with a few exceptions – to “fight” what they claimed was a “new” coronavirus have not only failed to slow or stop the disease, they have been counterproductive. It turns out that people develop lasting T-cell immunities, that patients have been successfully treated with T-cells from asymptomatic test-positive cases, and that the virus rarely spreads outside the family setting. What are the authoritarians going to do when it is no longer possible to keep this information hidden? How will they keep people shut down. Plus today: Utah shows a way out of corona-tyranny, big party in Wuhan, they are still cooking the books, and…enemy of the week!

Erie Times E-Edition Article-Patriots wear masks for others

Posted by M. C. on August 12, 2020

Patriots DO AS THEY ARE TOLD!

Invoking patriotism in the finest tradition of Joseph Goebbels. The ministry of fear reeks of desperation. Government is losing control and the minions come to the rescue.

Immunologist Bill Gates admits his vaccine may only be 50% effective and we may have to pay for…err…take the vaccine 3 times (if it didn’t work the first why would suddenly work the third time).

Even at 50% that means wearing a mask (and goggles as Fauci is intimating- fear, again) is a forever thing.

FOREVER.

Lets be generous and say Gates is fudging a 20-30% effectiveness rate, the same as influenza vaccines.

The number I see floating around is 80% of the infected people show no symptoms. They are now autoimmune. Add the mildly ill that require no medical help, possibly the same percentage that will react badly to the miracle vaccine.

It seems to me that a healthy immune system is 3 or more times MORE EFFECTIVE than virologist Gates’ miracle vaccine.

The main side effect of a working immunity system is good health. Will we say the same about a rushed to the public vaccine?

Next time you see someone wearing a mask as them how much Zinc, Vitamin C & D they are taking. Note the comatose-like blank stare.

There is a reason Gate$, Fauci and their media minion$ don’t talk about our immune systems.

By the way, flu season will soon be upon…oh but wait, influenza seems to have disappeared from the face of the earth.

I wonder where it went.

https://erietimes-pa-app.newsmemory.com/?publink=0a083582b

The issue: World observes Mask Week Our view: Unite to stop virus, save lives

Leading COVID-19 researchers from the University of Washington recently announced a startling forecast: If 95% of people in the U.S.

wore face masks in public, 66,000 fewer people would die of the disease by Dec. 1.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the Pandemic Action Network, the Federation of American Scientists, Facebook, Google and dozens of other organizations have come together this week to promote the power of this tool via Mask Week, a time to rally support for face masks worldwide.

We join in this call because we are tired of this pandemic, fearful of the death it deals and want everyone to unite to defeat it.

Think about the veterans, grandparents, doctors, nurses and first responders, the retail clerks, parents, children and college students who have died because of this nation’s chaotic, inconsistent response to this virus. More than 5 million cases nationwide have been identified. In just a few short months, more than 161,000 people have died in the U.S., including 27 people in Erie County.

If we don’t slow the spread, nearly 300,000 Americans are projected to die by December, according to the University of Washington’s Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation.

Yes, we need a vaccine. And no, life can’t come to a complete halt. But we can take simple steps — wear face masks, wash our hands and practice social distancing — to increase safety and stymie the spread of the virus, as other countries have managed. That is especially crucial to protect students and teachers alike as we try to restart schools.

The fact remains that too many people still don’t don masks in public and worse, gather in large groups. On Erie’s east side, where 20% of Erie County’s overall cases have been clustered in a single ZIP code, pastors and community activists say young people are partying unprotected and then bringing the illness home to vulnerable loved ones.

Some conservative lawmakers have hamstrung a coordinated response by recklessly casting mask mandates as an infringement of individual liberty. Perhaps they are, just like all kinds of other infringements, such as seat belts, that we routinely accept in the name of safety.

Some people are being played by misinformation sown on social media that seeks to leverage the nation’s divisions for political ends. And the sad fact is, this pandemic has exposed within us a deep, ugly seam of selfishness.

Masks are not dangerous or ineffective or oppressive. They prevent virus-laden droplets of moisture from the mouth and nose of a person, symptomatic or not, spreading through the air and finding new hosts.

They are one simple method each of us has within our power to fight to recover this nation’s health, prosperity and liberty. Wear one with pride.

Be seeing you
