It is hard to believe that Public HealthTM he’s trying to force America to mask again, but here we are. The question is, why?
(Article published from Brownstone Institute)
The dirty secret is this: masks don’t work by controlling the virus. Masks work by controlling people.

If we’re talking about stopping the spread of the virus, masks simply don’t work.
But if we’re talking about stoking fear, instilling blind obedience to state authorities, sowing discord among citizens, and publicly “expelling” skeptics and dissenters, that is, creating an authoritarian public health system, until and all totalitarian, then the masks work a lot. well indeed
MASKS DO NOT WORK TO CONTROL THE VIRUS
At this late date, it has been established beyond honest scientific doubt that masking is ineffective in stopping the contraction and spread of COVID-19. This is true both at the microscopic level and at the population level.
Early COVID-19 mask mandates were largely “justified” by the claim that the SARS-CoV-2 virus was not prone to airborne spread. However, the SARS-CoV-2 virus has it has since been shown to be an airborne virus (like the flu), meaning it can remain circulating in the ambient air for extended periods of time and spreads that way. SARS-CoV-2 viruses have also been shown to be much smaller in size than the holes in surgical and cloth masks.
So, on a microscopic level, Harvey Risch is right: trying to block the SARS-CoV-2 virus with a surgical mask is literally like trying to keep mosquitoes out of your garden by erecting a chain link fence.
At the population level, the last Cochrane meta analysis of the available randomized controlled trials on respiratory viruses and masking concluded that “Wearing masks in the community probably makes little or no difference in the outcome of influenza-like illness (ILI)/COVID-19 compared with not wearing masks. Wearing masks in the community probably makes little or no difference in the outcome of laboratory-confirmed influenza/SARS-CoV-2 compared to not wearing masks.”
(It should be noted that as the mask debate has revived, Cochrane has come under intense pressure from pro-mask groups to add to and amend his comments on this study, which the organization has capitulated).
In addition, this study is only one in addition to the hundreds of other studies which clearly describe the epidemiological ineffectiveness and real harms of masks, many of which have been known since at least 2021.
In summary: At the microscopic level, masks do not prevent the virus from leaving or entering human bodies, and at the population level, mask use has not been shown to provide any benefit and has been shown to have numerous damages
MASKS WORK TO CONTROL PEOPLE
All Public HealthTM The enterprise in the West has a strong political and authoritarian impulse incorporated from its very conception. Although a detailed review of this is beyond the scope of this article, it goes back at least to the figure of Rudolf Virchow, the pre-eminent 19th German physician of the century, opponent of Semmelweis and Darwin, and founder of the so-called “social medicine”, who famously wrote that “Medicine is a social science, and politics is nothing but medicine on a larger scale”.
The attitude that Public HealthTM should have the power to dictate national and local political policy for the “public good” (as they, the “experts,” unilaterally determine it to be) has increased over the past century, especially in the United States. Around him there are he got bigprofit industries, of which (at least since the Bayh-Dole Act), Public HealthTM civil servants often benefit greatly. The vaccine industry is only the most obvious of these.
During the era of COVID, the authoritarianism of Public HealthTM it morphed into totalitarian mode, with unprecedented lockdowns, school closures, travel restrictions, vaccine mandates, etc. that we all suffered. The most visible and easiest to apply symbol of this seizure of power were the masks.
Masks, even the comically useless ones made from old handkerchiefs, or the dirty, week-old surgical paper ones seen on countless chins, signaled compliance and submission. For very real Public HealthTM purpose of unquestioning obediencemasks work great.
Masks are effective in instilling fear in people. Fearful people submit more easily to authority, especially when that authority promises a solution to the cause of their fear.
Masks are effective as compliant virtue signals, bolstering the submissive’s ego. Masks also impose a very strong peer pressure effect, pushing uncertain people to follow the crowd.
Masks are effective at humiliating people. They are uncomfortable, ugly, dirty and unnatural. They really are “face diapers”. In a word, masks are degrading. If the ways of the former Eastern Bloc taught us anything, it is that the systematic degradation of individuals, especially for patently stupid reasons, is very effective in promoting totalitarian ends.
Masks are also extremely effective at exposing dissidents. Who dares to oppose the state? There’s one, right there. shame on them Avoid them. arrest them
That’s how masks really “work,” and that’s why Public HealthTM guys love them.
This is why are they trying to bring them back.
