UPDATE: I closed comments on this post as I got the information that I had hoped to gather. For those who cannot see that we are in a civil war and what is at stake, let your chains rest heavy on your shoulders.
I received the following comment which I did not approve.
Two from Denninger that explains why wearing masks don’t work using math and logic. I’m sure [name] will not be able to follow the logic since his female histrionics are in overdrive.
The name above was not mine but I did not post the comment for several reassons:
- Personal attacks. If you have to swear or attack someone to make your point, it is because your point is invalid.
- I read the two Denninger articles listed. The first did not address masks but the new theory that the virus is more prevalent in the population (by a factor of 10 in his post). The second article started with the following statement:
There is zero science that the use of masks by the ordinary, unskilled and inattentive public does anything to protect anyone, and there is plenty of evidence that their abusive misuse, which is what an unskilled or inattentive person will do, increases rather than decreases risk because they, whether a “formal mask” or a bandana, concentrates everything that passes through or around it and if you make contact with your hands, which you do any time you “adjust” it, don or doff it, then touch any other person or thing, you transfer dozens or even hundreds of times as much concentrated contamination, including whatever virus particles are included, to that other person or thing.
False. I posted a peer reviewed article detailing how masks are effective. His opinion is invalid.
3. The countries where people wore masks had a significant reduction of COVID-19 cases worldwide.
4. I could design an experiment based on the hypothesis that masks are ineffective and prove it. I would use cloth masks that were not fitted in an air conditioned environment in a hospital setting. I also would make the participants wear the same mask for an extended period of time.
5. Our medical experts told us that masks were ineffective at the beginning of this “exercise”. Dr. Fauci recently admitted that they lied because our national stockpiles were needed for the medical community. There is no logic that masks magically work for medical staff but not regular people.
If you wear a mask, you harm no one. The proper mask with minor training will at worst case, reduce the inoculum size to allow your body more time to build antibodies to the viral S proteins.
So why is this one of the issues that I titled why we are losing? It is simple: we have allowed the other side to manipulate us using a non-issue. This is one of their techniques which successfully divides us. Do I wear a mask? Of course. When I go out shopping which is less than 30 minutes a week on average. What do I do the rest of the time? I prepare for the civil war which has already started.
For the rest of you who allow yourselves to be marginalized, I sure wish you would do something to edify our side instead of collaborating with the enemy.
