Since it’s gotten to the point where our intelligence and/or morality is based on whether we wear a mask or whether we trust the official narrative, consider the following.
History has shown us that chaos allows authoritarians to take control of a society rather effectively. By throwing the public endless, contradicting guidance, eventually there’s bound to be a home-run fear fastball tailored for every man, woman and child.
It’s a brilliant, yet very ancient induction tactic designed to catch and control as many fish as possible, simply by using a very wide net. When a crisis is at the bottom of the ninth and the bases are loaded, authoritarians are absolutely wagering that you’ll choose whichever narrative that is most relative (and ultimately the most terrifying) to you as an individual.
Let’s dig into specific examples of this chaos, with verifiable sources.
We were originally told that the medical system was going to be overwhelmed by the virus, so we had to “flatten the curve” by keeping everybody home and socially distanced. We were told that participating in these drastic measures would help us “defeat the invisible enemy” so that we can negate the virus as a threat within our society.
We were then told that actually, no, these measures won’t really prevent the spread, because most of us will eventually be infected. In fact, we’re now told that in reality, the only thing a lock-down can really hope to accomplish (aside from destroying the economy) is help prevent all of us from catching the virus at the same time.
We were originally told that public spaces, playgrounds, parks and beaches must all be closed and restricted in order to prevent the spread of the virus via large outside gatherings. Now we’re told that it’s fine to go to beaches and parks, despite the fact that as a country, we’re seemingly witnessing some of the highest number of virus deaths since the beginning of the crisis.
We were originally told that masks do not help stop the spread of the virus in any significant way, and in fact, may be harmful. Two months later we were then told that masks actually do significantly limit the spread of the virus, and the excuse for the original position is that we simply didn’t want people to diminish the medical establishment’s mask supply, and/or that we somehow didn’t actually understand how this particular coronavirus spreads since it’s “novel”.
We are given this outlandish excuse, despite the fact that the fundamentals of disease transmission applies to all coronaviruses, novel or not.
We were originally told that homemade or cloth masks let through more particles, facilitate self-contamination, and thus can result in higher infection rates. However, as an increasing number of people disobeyed varying degrees of their local lock-down orders, we’re then ultimately told that cloth masks actually work great in preventing the spread of the virus and that we must social distance.
We were originally told that the virus can last for days on contact surfaces, and that we must be extremely cautious by disinfecting everything. We’re then told that the virus actually does not spread easily on surfaces, and that the vast majority of cases are transmitted via airborne particles. After all, hand washing is somewhat quantifiable, while airborne particles are invisible, uncontrollable, and therefore terrifying.
We were originally told that asymptomatic people can spread the virus and even contribute to community “super spreading”. We’re then later told by top experts that asymptomatic transmission is in fact, very rare. When this new information got out and a moment of relief was nearly felt, we were then quickly told yet again that asymptomatic (or pre-symptomatic) people may in fact be spreading the disease after all, based on very early studies, rather than any research from more recent studies.
We were originally told that based on extensive studies, children were highly unlikely to be significant carriers or transmitters of the disease. Now that school season is here, we’re being told that kids are becoming infected with the virus in high numbers and that we all need to consider the seriousness of this growing threat.
Contrary to the above, the one message that has remained consistent throughout all of this, is that “we are all in this together, even though we may be apart”. Unless you’re closer than 6 feet, in which case we need to be further apart in order to remain together.
