there was a time when the determined virtue signaler sought to project or at least ape actual virtue.
alas, today we get mostly statistical and epidemiological ignorance baked into evangelical cultism.
the cult of the mask has taken on a life of its own as long term wear has intersected with cognitive dissonance to intensify belief into a jihadi religion.
when you act like a fool for an entire year, it takes a pretty outlandish internal narrative to avoid admitting it to yourself and you can and will twist reality into pretzels to sustain it.
this is like watching someone brag about mistaking a dunce cap for the valedictorian’s robes.
It might be interesting to have a psychiatrist evaluate the sorts of internal mental dynamics that support Cult behaviors. I have read a lot about the Great Leap Forward, which I suspect is the general model the neoliberal fascists are employing in the so-called "Great Reset" (the aping of the "great" in Great Leap is no accident). I would guess there is a dopamine-mediated reward system being co-opted by the Cult narrative. What made the Red Guards so enthusiastic about destroying their own personal well-being, as well as the well-being of their children and community, and even their civilization? My assumption here is that BLM/antifa is the contemporary analog of the Guards.
I actually can't quite believe it myself yet there is a fact that is undeniably true. The embrace of these mask fetishes are ideological. If you see a person driving around in their car with the windows rolled up and their mask on you can be certain that person is a Democrat. The person who tweeted this photo is a Democrat. Those who embrace this fear porn and relish the hideously ineffective non-medial interventions such as masks and lockdowns are all Democrats. It should not be true but it is.
My general belligerence coupled with informed risk assessment prevent my conformity to this smothering madness. The more we participate in their delusions, the more they demand it. Make no mistake, they will do it again and again. “Find out just what any people will quietly submit to and you have the exact measure of the injustice and wrong which will be imposed on them.”- Frederick Douglass
Maskless face is the US evolution of the ridiculous dunce cap imposed on the enemy by Mao'se Red Guard......
The mask is the symbol of our disdain for our children.
I am so happy to be in North Carolina small town atmosphere currently. Have gone in restaurants, grocery stores and independently owned shops with no mask....and most are maskless. So refreshing. These people who are "protecting the community" aren't Police Officers or Emergency/Fire personnel. So...Just. Stop. Please...!
