The following article was written by Robert Freudenthal and was published by the Brownstone Institute last October 30, 2021.
In it, Freudenthal answers the question: why do governments insist on masking despite the lack of evidence showing that works?
Here are some of the most important points raised in the article:
- Masking is a relational tool. Wearing a mask represents an entry into a coercive relationship.
- Compulsory masking is an attack on our communal life
- Compulsory masking does not consider individual experiences which could lead to distress and reactivation of trauma.
- Masking exacerbates difficulties along existing inequalities.
- Masking is a representation of medical power which legitimizes biosurveillance, passports, testing and various mandates that impinges on our personal lives.
Editor’s Note: While this article was published in October 2021, it is even more relevant today as many countries are finally removing COVID restrictions, but there are others, like the Philippines, refusing to remove mask mandates.https://www.cnnphilippines.com/news/2022/2/11/COVID-19-pandemic-endemic-mask-testing-Philippines.html, https://tribune.net.ph/index.php/2022/03/22/duterte-mask-mandate-stays/ [Also read Is it time for the Philippines to lift its mask mandate?].
With the knowledge that The Great Reset is being rolled out worldwide, masking takes on an entirely new meaning. Maybe our health authorities only see it as a way to protect societies from a (harmless) virus, but if you know the science, then you know that “mask-wearing is simply virtue signaling and a placebo to allow those scared to live the opportunity to believe they can magically survive anything”.https://www.ndlegis.gov/assembly/67-2021/testimony/HPOLSUB-1323-20210204-4225-F-BRENAN_CATHY_S.pdf
And contrary to what health authorities believe, mask-wearing is harmful [see Meta-study shows that masks are dangerous, German Neurologist: Oxygen deprivation due to face masks cause permanent neurological damage, Should children be wearing masks?.

As the article below shows, masking was just one step to creating a compliant society. Our inability to question its purpose, despite the evidence showing that masking does not work, has emboldened authoritarian governments to implement any policy without fear of pushback [Also read Danish mask study now published: Masks do not reduce SARS-CoV-2 infection, Debunking the CDC study on mask mandates, Study shows 90% of particles can pass through cloth masks making them useless for preventing COVID transmission].
After all, if they could get away with impinging on our rights with false policies that could easily be debunked with science, such as masking, they can get away with anything.
