Self-Masking Humanity

“And their faces resembled human faces.”
 
– Revelation 9.7
 
Their faces do still resemble human faces even as they continue to unhumanize themselves. The mask is meant to deny one’s humanity.
 
Months after the initial terror campaign in the media, the Mask-Faces no longer can claim passion. They no longer can claim they’re being stampeded. By now those who continue to embrace the Covid Death Cult are doing so out of deliberate motivation. Their motivation has zero to do with health or science. The science on mask-wearing is longstanding and not controversial: Outside of a health care setting where health professionals are using professional-grade masks while treating patients with respiratory diseases, mask-wearing serves zero health-related purpose.
 
Most people know or suspect this. For years polls have consistently shown that most people don’t trust the media, so there’s no reason to believe they trust it here either. Those who still embrace the mask do so because they want to.
 
The most evident fact is that the Mask-Faces don’t want their faces to be seen. They consider themselves too ugly for sight. In their own eyes their humanity is ugly, and they’re ashamed of being human.
 
As I’ve been writing here for many years, many people are ashamed of their nature as physical beings needing to eat food. They struggle to alleviate their self-disgust by mediating food through such technologies as pesticides and genetic engineering. The idea that they’re not eating food but physically intermingling with what they consider high technology helps their diseased ego co-exist with their actual physical existence.
 
In the same way, they’ve tried to console themselves for having to breathe air like a common primate by polluting the air, preferring climate-controlled indoor air which is the most toxic of all. They would welcome a circumstance which forced or strongly urged them to remain indoors, which would tell them the polluted indoor air is “safest”.
 
Although particulate air pollution is highly poisonous and lethal for hundreds of thousands every year, the most deranged among civilized egos try to revel in the idea that they’re not breathing but rather physically intermingling with technologically altered air, i.e. with technology as such.
 
The government/media’s terroristic propaganda campaign centering on SARS-COV-2 was designed by the leadership of the technocratic cult and deployed according to this cult’s specifications, under its supervision. But it has placed the rank and file in a quandary.
 
As good authoritarian followers they do fear the bug. At a superstitious medieval level they believe the air itself is poisoned with a miasma which causes disease. But even worse, even though seemingly in contradiction, the controlled demolition of the global economy which was the first primary goal of the elites in deploying the whole terror-lockdown campaign had the side effect, because of reduced industrial activity, of temporarily rendering the air the cleanest it’s been in our lives. While Covid-19 isn’t harming anyone but the elderly who already are sick, the fear of this bogeyman coupled with actual clean air sickens the minds of the technocratic necropolitan mass. What to do? They seized upon the masks as hex objects. The masks are self-defense simultaneously against the clean air as well as against the miasma.
 
That’s why they’ve so joyously gone insane and why they so tenaciously stick with their masks even now, months after the initial scare, when all rational people are aware of the mild character of the epidemic, the fact long-established by scientific study that masks are of no use against flu-type viruses, and that reflecting this the “authorities” have constantly contradicted themselves and one another on the value of mask-wearing, because maskism never had the slightest public health value but always served only political, social control purposes.

  1. Russell, I still read your stuff (your facility with language and the depth of ypour background work remains impressive), but the last post and this one sent me scurrying to check sources. FYI and your readers,too, the citation you give for the insufficiency of general masking to support your cult argument contains the following editor’s note: Editor’s Note: This article was published on April 1, 2020, at NEJM.org. In a letter to the editor on June 3, 2020, the authors of this article state “We strongly support the calls of public health agencies for all people to wear masks when circumstances compel them to be within 6 ft of others for sustained periods.”

    • That’s no surprise if you’re familiar with how scientists operate. The very geneticists whose scientific work disproves genetic engineering ideology then all turn around and support genetic engineering. That kind of double-think is part of the job. Scientists constantly suck up to power in ways that contradict their own science.

      Actually, that letter to the editor is waffling. It pretends to support the anti-scientific, purely political-cultural maskist ideology, but the phrase “sustained periods” lets it remain technically compatible with what they wrote in their paper:

      “We know that wearing a mask outside health care facilities offers little, if any, protection from infection. Public health authorities define a significant exposure to Covid-19 as face-to-face contact within 6 feet with a patient with symptomatic Covid-19 that is sustained for at least a few minutes (and some say more than 10 minutes or even 30 minutes). The chance of catching Covid-19 from a passing interaction in a public space is therefore minimal. In many cases, the desire for widespread masking is a reflexive reaction to anxiety over the pandemic.”

      (Of course the whole “six feet” business has no scientific basis but is at best a guess.)

      At any rate, in this case as always I’ll stick with the science of the scientists and disdain their political whoring.
