To the more astute reader, this will be the ultimate No Sh*t article of all time:
EXCLUSIVE — Rand Paul: Masks ‘Are All About Submission’
Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) told Breitbart News on Saturday that mask mandates — ostensibly issued for public health purposes — “are all about submission,” offering his remarks in an interview with Breitbart News Editor-in-Chief Alex Marlow at Turning Point USA’s Student Action Summit in West Palm Beach, FL.
PAUL: It’d be one thing if we were told you have to give up your liberty, you have to give up your freedom, we’re going to save your life. But what if you have to give up all your freedoms and they’re wrong on the science?
Every one of the mandates — and you look in country after country, state after state — you look at when the mask mandates went in — the incidents went up exponentially after the mandates. Restaurants, nobody can eat in a restaurant, there’s no science behind any of that.
Middle seat missing on the airplane, you really think you’re like 12 inches from the other guy instead of six inches, it really makes a difference? None of it really makes any sense, and there’s no epidemiological evidence. You know, it’s like, ‘Wash your hands, stand six feet apart.’
There’s no evidence that that slowed down the [spread]. … The trajectory of the virus hasn’t been altered at all by any of these things. I think the vaccine will, and this is why I really despise people like the CNN Doctor [Sanjay] Gupta, who I think is committing television malpractice by saying, ‘Oh, your mask is a much better thing than the vaccine.’ Well, no, it isn’t. The masks aren’t working at all. The thing’s going through the roof and people are dying. Why would you want to discourage someone from taking a vaccine and say, ‘Oh wear the mask.’?
And the masks are different, too. The N95 mask actually does work to a certain extent, if worn properly and used [with] sterile technique. In the hospital, our doctors — I have a brother and sister who are doctors, they wear the N95 mask, and it’s kept them from getting infected — but there’s no value to the cloth mask, at all.
It’s like wearing your underwear. You might as well cut your underwear up and wear your underwear as protection. It doesn’t work.
PAUL: Well, that’s why I like this youth group here. What are they asked to give up? They’re being asked to give up their graduation from high school, their graduation from college, their wedding, and if we’re not careful, it’s gonna be their five-year wedding anniversary or their ten-year anniversary. We’re still gonna be wearing masks.
It’s been obvious that The Mask has simply been a tool by which the ruling class can test the compliance of the average citizen for quite a long time now.
It’s a general rule of human nature: If something is required for survival, you generally don’t have to mandate it by law. If you do have to mandate it by law, it’s probably not actually required for survival.
If this were a real crisis, people would naturally wear a mask, socially distance, and avoid activities that would increase their chance of acquiring the virus. It would not need to be manually enforced by laws. Since it’s not a real crisis, it has to be manually enforced to make it appear as such.
Additionally, if masks actually worked, it would not require everyone to wear one. If your mask works, it would be obvious that it does not matter whether or not I wear one. Because your mask works and is protecting you. But we all have to wear one or they somehow no longer work. Which means it’s compliance, not science.
Even if masks did work, it makes no sense to do such draconian measures for a virus with the fatality rate as COVID. The risk versus reward just does not add up.
The virus is political. Submission to it is submission to the political narrative and the lying “experts”, not to any actual science surrounding COVID.
This is why I have been an ardent supporter of an override method for societal stakeholders. Sometimes the representatives get the laws wrong; horribly wrong. Noncompliance doesn’t work because then you can’t buy groceries, an actual survival need. We need a legal method to override these laws. In a similar vein as to recalling a politician, we need a tool to be able to get enough signatures to call for a vote to override these stupid local mandates. We need actual tools at our disposal to override the representatives that continually fail us. That tool exists in Enclavism.
