We now have overwhelming data that proves masks are not effective in preventing the spread of illness, and are actually very harmful to our physical and mental health, so why do people still wear masks?
Information has been coming out for years questioning Fauci and his flip flops on mask wearing, but another doctor has a different take. Dr. Brian Joondeph wrote an interesting piece for American Thinker stating that we now have a new ‘Stockholm Syndrome’ for mask wearing.
“Stockholm Syndrome is when captors hold people hostage, and the hostages eventually identify with their captors” Joondeph told KTRH. “We’re seeing that the captors of mask use, Dr. Fauci, government bureaucrats, Governors, all requiring masks endlessly, are really captors of the nation.”
The story behind the Stockholm Syndrome is a 1973 six-day hostage event in a Swedish bank. By the second day, “the hostages were on a first-name basis with their captors, and they started to fear the police more than their abductors.” By the end of the hostage crisis, “the convicts and hostages embraced, kissed and shook hands.”
A modern-day version of the Stockholm Syndrome is playing out a few years after the plandemic of COVID captivity. Americans have been held hostage by medical czars like Dr Fauci, totalitarian governors named Cuomo, Newsom, Whitmer, Murphy, and Wolf, and big media, including cable news giants CNN, MSNBC, and Fox News.
Americans have been previously held hostage in their homes for months, told not to wear masks, then told to wear masks, then told not to wear masks, then again told to wear masks. We were assured that that a BLM protest of thousands is perfectly safe while a family wedding, funeral, or a Trump rally is a super spreader event.
Trying to find the truth about mask wearing pros and cons, and real scientific data, is a challenge. Truthful information has been scrubbed from the internet being replaced by general opinions of the ruling class prompting citizens to comply. Even ChatGPT has been compromised with the same misleading propaganda. However, I managed to gather a few of the cons of mask wearing from ChatGPT below:
6 Ways Mask Wearing May Harm Physical Health (from ChatGPT)
1. Breathing Difficulties: Prolonged use of certain types of masks, particularly those with high filtration capabilities like N95 respirators, may cause breathing difficulties for some individuals. This is more likely to be an issue for people with pre-existing respiratory conditions.
2. Discomfort and Skin Issues: Wearing masks for extended periods can lead to discomfort, skin irritation, or acne. This is more common with certain types of masks, and proper hygiene practices can help mitigate these issues.
3. False Sense of Security: Wearing a mask does not replace other preventive measures, such as hand hygiene and social distancing. Relying solely on masks may give individuals a false sense of security, leading to neglect of other important health measures.
4. Contamination Risk: If not handled properly, masks can become contaminated with infectious agents. It’s crucial to follow proper hygiene practices, such as washing hands before and after handling masks, to minimize the risk of contamination.
5. Improper Fit: Masks need to fit snugly to be effective. Improperly fitted masks may not provide adequate protection and can lead to air leakage, reducing their effectiveness.
6. Carbon Dioxide Buildup: Some individuals have expressed concerns about increased levels of carbon dioxide (CO2) buildup while wearing masks. However, for the general public, especially when using common types of masks, the risk of significant CO2 buildup is minimal. Masks are designed to allow for proper airflow.
5 Ways Mask Wearing May Harm Mental Health (from ChatGPT)
1. Discomfort and Anxiety: Wearing a mask for extended periods may cause discomfort, and some individuals may experience anxiety related to the feeling of constriction or difficulty breathing. This can be more pronounced for those with pre-existing anxiety disorders or claustrophobia.
2. Communication Challenges: Masks can make communication more challenging, especially for individuals who rely on facial expressions, lip-reading, or other visual cues. This can lead to feelings of frustration or isolation, particularly in social or work settings.
3. Feeling of Isolation: Masks may contribute to a sense of social distance, as facial expressions are partially obscured. For some, this might result in a feeling of disconnection from others.
4. Stigma or Judgment: Stigmatization or judgment related to mask-wearing, either for wearing a mask or not wearing one, can affect mental well-being. Individuals may feel judged or stigmatized based on their mask-wearing choices.
5. Children and Developmental Concerns: Some parents and caregivers express concerns about the impact of prolonged mask-wearing on children’s social and emotional development, as they may miss out on crucial non-verbal cues during interactions.
Speaking out against your ‘Mask Insistent’ captors leads to punishment and abuse, from social media de-platforming and public harassment, to loss of job.
Americans have been beaten with a stick for years, based more on the whims of the ruling class than any sound science that would explain the above contradictory ruling dictates.
Many ‘Masked’ hostages are fighting back but others may have succumbed to Stockholm Syndrome after the public has submitted to the gods of lockdowns, distancing, and masks sporadically for a few years. Those gods now are showing kindness by releasing their hostages, but some unconsciously view them as benevolent gods and now worship them and their ideals.
Unfortunately, the damage has already been done. People either wear masks out of 1) irrational fear, or 2) as a virtue signal badge of honor, feeling that wearing their mask is a poke at Trump and his supporters, or 3) to people please under influence of the Stockholm Syndrome.
What motivates you to wear your mask?
