Masking ourselves to death: Part 1 of 3


I’ve completed the first half of an essay—more like a book—on the mask phenomenon (or cult). I’m sending it to News from Underground subscribers in three installments, as it’s pretty long. It’s not just about the mask mandates, and their scientific groundlessness, but about the power of war propaganda, and how best to see through it, and help others do so as well.

Let me orient you with a summary of the contents. After an introductory bit on the uncanniness of this moment (the August day when I started writing), Masking Ourselves to Death moves on to these subjects:

> The repressive measures used, since May, to enforce the mask mandates in Third World countries, China, and throughout Europe;
> The sudden turnaround by Dr. Fauci, and the CDC and WHO, each of them first discouraging healthy people from mask-wearing, then strongly urging everyone to mask;
> The brutality with which masking has been enforced by cops in the US, and the viciousness with which unmasked people have been treated by their masked fellow-citizens;
> The national blackout on such incidents by the media, which has highlighted only instances of violence by unmasked people;
> How the propaganda drive for masking—including the media’s one-sided coverage of such violence worldwide—recalls the formula for war-propaganda drives described by Hermann Goering during the first Nuremberg trials;
> How to “break the spell” of propaganda
1) “Keep your head” (i.e., use common sense, augmented by some knowledge of the past, and of developments beyond our borders);
2) “Pay close attention to those men behind the curtain (a summary of the many instances of COVID-19 “stars” like Dr. Fauci, the Cuomo brothers, the German president Frank-Walter Steineier and others not masking, usually off-camera, or otherwise flouting the very rules that they themselves have either imposed or vocally supported);
3) What the science says about the effectiveness of masks, and the media’s censorship/distortion of such evidence, and ad hominem attacks on those presenting it;
4) On “the science” finding that masks do prevent transmission of respiratory viruses (“science” that’s actually propaganda); 
5) What the science says about the ineffectiveness of masking by doctors performing surgery;
6) What the science says about the health hazards of masking among healthcare professionals—and what OSHA consultants say about it; 
7) What’s really happening, worldwide, to healthy people wearing masks, which badly sicken them, and even kill them, more often than we know;
8) How pro-mask advocates “argue” (“Put on a fucking mask!”), and how they themselves betray the very callousness and selfishness that they so lividly denounce (a section ending with a paragraph on the grotesque environmental toll of masking the world over). 

That’s a rough paraphrase, as there’s much more here than what I’ve just described. I’ll send the second and third parts of this first half over the next week or so.

I’m still at work on Part 2 (“Why is this happening?”), which gets into the real reasons for this propaganda push: an overview that sheds a lot of light on Bill Gates, and his “philanthropic” predecessors, among others. This second half will help us better understand what’s really going on, and the urgency of our uniting to resist it.

I’m sending you this section in the hope that you will share your editorial comments, corrections and/or whatever other examples you might think I ought to cite, so that I can incorporate them into the final version, which I’m hoping to publish (somehow) next month.

Many thanks for your time and attention, and for your interest in this matter; I hope you find it helpful, as I’ve put a great deal into it, as (I hope) you’ll see.

Men, it has been well said, think in herds; it will be seen that they go mad in herds, while they only recover their senses slowly, and one by one. Charles Mackay, L.L.D. This quotation comes from a book first published in 1841. Good luck on going sane.

Thank you for this interesting introduction. What is the status of parts 2 & 3? I know you have some other things on your plate right now.

Dear Mark

I think common sense would lead us to assume that any mask will protect others from droplets caused by your sneezing and coughing.
An N95 mask will also protect the wearer to a greater extent.
As for evidence as someone who is not medically trained I would recommend Laura Spinney’s book on the pandemic of 1918 to 1920.
There was clear lower mortality rate in City administrations that mandated and enforced mask wearing along with closing cinemas compared with those that did not- clearly one single measure is not sufficient but may be necessary.
Are you an epidemiologist, a virologist, or an ICU consultant?
If not I suggest you consult with them.
As someone with stage for cancer who has been shielding now for a year in the meantime perhaps you could keep your door and your mouth shut.

Disrespectfully Yours

PS If you have any credible evidence with citations rather than dangerous assertions please show us

John McNulty – You say N95 masks offer greater protection to the wearer, but failed to mention they offer no protection to others from the wearer – I guess that’s not relevant to you? Also, you speak as though we are actually in the state of a health emergency dealing with a virus that is deadly to everyone, yet surely you have read all of the reports and analyzed the figures surrounding Covid deaths, and you’re aware that the only individuals who’s lives are at risk from this virus are the extremely old or extremely ill – and that is nothing new. Individuals in this category have always been at high risk of succumbing to respiratory illnesses like Influenza, Pneumonia or Respiratory Disease. The only difference is that now people who used to be diagnosed with these illnesses are being diagnosed with Covid-19 instead, and those who die and tested positive for the virus with a PCR test are marked down as a “Covid death” even though Covid was not the cause of death. Are you not aware of these things? you certainly should be by now. Here is Canada, our mortality rate in 2020 dropped from 2019, so how do you explain that? You are seriously delusional if you continue to ignore to rapidly mounting evidence that Covid poses no threat to the general public.
