More Good News
We should count our blessings. The COVID rules are a line in the sand, roughly separating the sheep from the goats. I am not speaking of fragile old people, cancer patients, diabetics, and other such -at-risk people, but aggressive healthy people who wear their masks, when they are not required, and preach plague-worship on FB and elsewhere. These people are dangerously stupid and to be avoided at all costs. Every revolution needs a band of useful idiot--though in this case, it is more like useless idiots.
Masks were designed to conceal identity, whether at a Mardi Gras party or a hold-up, but there are occasions when masks reveal more than they conceal. The bankrobber's mask establishes his bona fides as a committed felon, while the mask one chooses for a masked ball or masquerade party may tell more about ourselves than we realize. Little girls who dress up as a fairy princess are no more transparent than a real estate salesman in a pirate costume or a father of four who pretends to be Casanova.
COVID masks are even more revealing, since those who wear them without necessity are solemnly declaring their allegiance and dependence on the regime or the world-order, "their refuge and their strength, whose service is perfect freedom..." It is as much a confession of weakness, joined with the vain desire for power, as a Nazi armband or a BLM sign in a neighbor's yard. They are powerful warnings to keep more than a social distance.
