From a reader:
As the Nazi Party grew more powerful, they required Jewish people to sew
large yellow Star of David emblems on their outer garments. This mask
nonsense is in the same vein. An N95 mask has a pore size of 300
nanometers – it will NOT reliably stop a virus particle that is smaller
than that (the COVID-19 particle is 125 nanometers – barely 1/3 the
size.) It doesn’t get any simpler than that.
Now, if you are actively ill and sneezing, coughing, etc. what the mask
(or even a simple cloth bandanna for that matter) WILL do is stem the
spray – but if you are actively ill you should stay home anyway, except
to visit your health care provider perhaps.
Slowing the spread of the virus among the asymptomatic hampers the
building of herd immunity, what virologists and epidemiologists of any
integrity will readily admit is the ONLY way a respiratory virus is
rendered inert. And maybe that, concomitant with the psychological
manipulation of constant fear mongering (frightened people are easiest
to control), is the real intent.
As for claims to the contrary, where are the data that support that? How
has that data been analyzed and has it been subjected to peer-review? In
general, people shouldn’t take medical advice from a politician or
career bureaucrat, nor accept offhand remarks as credible.
If someone wants to carry around a rabbit’s foot for good luck, be my
guest. But don’t prosecute those who don’t buy into superstition.
My personal plan of escalating action is this:
1. To the extent feasible, boycott any establishment that mandates mask
2. When it becomes unavoidable, claim exemption due to breathing
3. If they persist and compliance is unavoidable, sue them blind under
the Americans with Disabilities Act as well as a civil suit citing
A group in Ohio is holding an organized protest on Saturday – Tennessee
had something similar earlier. But here’s the thing: that may be
counterproductive. It encourages these tyrannical bastards because they
then reasonably conclude that you still believe in the political process
and the rule of law. If you do, I can’t help you.
Good luck Mr. Phelps.
