Re: The Masks the public wear don't work - so Get a Grip
I agree there are always nefarious agendas at play, and that the elite are exploiting this crisis as they exploit every crisis and everything else in their relentless class war against humanity and the natural world. But when trying to separate what elements of the pandemic response are rooted in science and what in nefarious ends - not always easy! - it's useful to consider how universal the policy is. Mask mandates seem to be fairly universal, though not for situations like the elderly couple walking outside. That's not encouraged where I live (here one can get medical exemptions from wearing them at all). Though the example does illustrate how harsh even scientifically-based policies can be when imposed on poor and vulnerable people, already groaning under the weight of the hideous system they are forced to live under. And when the authorities that are mandating the policies are the same ones with their boots already on the neck of the people that are forced to comply with them, I can see why the policies are so often resented and rejected. Especially when these same authorities have long-established records of lying about everything on behalf of their oligarch masters. It's an incredibly fraught situation.
