Why is it that the American public are so resistant to following the mask mandates? The left is so astonished that the American people simply will not comply with their edicts. With fists clenched and disdain spewing, they are insulted that the American people are disobeying them. How dare you disobey!!! Follow the Science !!!! Do as we say!!! We know best!!! You aren't intelligent enough to know the complexities of all this. You don't have the wherewithal to figure this stuff out. It is beyond your comprehension. We have been clear on this!!!!!!
The Great Oz Has Spoken!!!!!!!
Well, a major reason people don't take them seriously is because they themselves don't take their orders seriously. If they did, they would abide by them. The best way to convince someone is to show by example. Orders are given to stay home, mask up, stay 6 feet apart. Don't go to weddings, don't attend funerals, don't go for Thanksgiving or Christmas dinner with family or friends. Kids can't go to school and when they do, they must wear a mask the entire time, even outside in the fresh air. Should they want to go to band practice, they are forced to go inside some idiotic looking plastic box that looks like a port-a-potty and try to blow a horn through a mask with a hole in it. They, like the rest of America, must stay isolated. And if you do not follow this insanity and play along, you are chastised, ridiculed, ostracized and banished from polite society. The ridiculousness of all of this insanity is now not lost on the average American.
The more convincing message that the "leaders", the powerful elite, are sending is by their actions.
We have all seen the pictures of them in restaurants, hair salons, ball games, swanky birthday bashes,weddings, etc. without a mask. Torturing children to wear snot soaked masks for 6 hours and pose for a picture with you with a big grin on your face is not only distasteful and hypocritical, it just demonstrates what bad judgement you have, therefore convincing others you have no business making larger impactful decisions. Another insult, having a $20,000 a plate fundraiser dinner, not wearing a mask, and yet have all the plebeian servers mask up before they deliver your food and drink. It is either the height of hubris or the epitome of stupidity.
Why would anyone believe there is such a threat of illness or possible death, if you yourself don't appear to believe it or be afraid of it? If it were so scary, wouldn't you be taking every precaution to protect yourself? Because after all, no one is more important and worthy of protection than the powerful elite. And yet, the fear blabbing and demands for obedience continue. Louder and more forceful.
People believe what they see more than what they hear. You know the thing, Actions speak louder than words. They actually do. Could you imagine a physician telling you the dangers of eating bread as he takes a big bite out of a bologna sandwich? You'd think he was either deliberately lying to you, incorrect on the facts and data, or just a bad doctor giving bad advise. Which ever it is, you would ignore him.
After 2 years of businesses going under, loosing jobs, denying of personal socializing and just plain condescension and disdainful carnage, the American people have just about had it up to their collective eyeballs. They are now demanding an end to the insanity and want answers from their "leaders". Especially when it comes to their children. Parents are willing to sacrifice a lot, but don't sacrifice their children. 2 years later, have any real studies been done on the effects of these "for you own good" rules and regulations. What damage has been caused? What damage is recoverable and what is permanent ? Have they done any assessments on the harmful effects all this lunacy has visited on our children? Scholastically, they may be able to recover, but the social, psychological and physiological detriments, who knows. We know they have difficulty learning how to navigate through disagreements with their piers, they have problems understanding social nuances, recognizing the meaning of a smile or perhaps a frown of disappointment. What effect has an eight hour mask day done to the development of their teeth and oral hygiene? Has anyone even bothered to ask? Or consulted a dentist? How sad that in their quest for power and control the "leaders" have sacrificed the very people they profess to protect. It's about the "children".
All the people they were so intent on controlling, they have in fact had the opposite effect. People are less compliant and more defiant. If one were to write a lesson plan on how to demolish trust, this is what you would have done. It is a step by step guide on how to accomplish total mistrust and loose all credibility. They went too far. As always, they just don't know when to stop.
However, on the bright side, this inadvertently was the kick in the butt the American people needed to wake up, smell the coffee, and start thinking on their own and making decisions that suit them best in their personal lives. The American people have ceased to be sheep. The power push has shifted. The powerful elite during their masquerade parties, and intoxicating power joy ride, have just awakened the sleeping giant. Namely,
