Everywhere I look, people are turning a blind eye to science—and this is just as true for dental professionals as it is for the general public. People just cannot let go entrenched misconceptions. Look at how many individuals cling to mask wearing. They even wear the masks when alone in their car or outside—where it is impossible to contract COVID. Contrary to what our corrupt government officials want you to believe, REAL science has shown masks to be ineffective against viruses and even downright harmful! (Check out the 43 compilation studies of mask effectiveness and safety in the science section of ONWARD’s library). Virologists know this and they wear a special suit with a closed ventilation system when they work with viruses. Why would they go to all that expense and trouble if all that was needed was a simple mask? Viruses are small enough to go right through most masks—and certainly they can easily travel outside the edges since masks cannot be airtight.
Masks were never designed to be worn for hours on end. Masks restrict oxygen flow and allow carbon dioxide, moisture, and bacteria to build up inside the mask. Common sense concludes that prolonged mask wearing cannot possibly be healthy. Masks can protect the operator against splatter hitting his or her mucous membranes; so mask wearing for this reason makes sense. But prolonged mask wearing was never recommended, as the masks are to be discarded after such procedures.
Why do government and organization officials still push for mask wearing if it is not supported by science? The real purpose of mask wearing is not public health—it is public control. Mask wearing isolates people and dehumanizes them. It is hard to establish relationships when you cannot see facial expressions. It is also hard not to associate mask wearing with gangsters–and I cannot help but be suspicious of people who hide behind masks.
It is important to realize that mandatory mask wearing is but one tactic corrupt government officials have in store for their constituents. These monsters mean to take away all of our freedoms—not just the freedom to sit in a classroom without a mask, but also the freedom to decide on vaccination, and the freedom to live life without government interfering with pursuit of happiness. Of late we are hearing about restriction of travel and shopping through vaccine passports, forced vaccinations, and concentration camps for the unvaccinated. These horrors are happening in many countries—and they are being planned in some places inside the United States.
Mask wearing is just the tip of the iceberg. While it might seem trivial to complain, history has shown that even a small compromise with values will accelerate the next assault on freedom onto one’s doorstep. Recently, I was scheduled to attend a conference and the week before the conference I was notified that I would have to wear a mask for four 8-hour days. I refused to comply. I sent the scientific studies to the conference director and I pointed out to her that other dental organizations– including the Arizona Dental Association–have made mask wearing optional—not mandatory.
Logic would dictate that those in the health field would embrace science but these days merely pointing out science does not guarantee a reasonable response. People who have deep seated beliefs and paradigms do not care about evidence. Instead of articulated debate they respond with an outburst of emotion and a lambasting of personal character and integrity. This is a known technique to win an argument when it is too weak to hold water on its merit. Not only was I banished from this dental conference, but I had to discontinue joint projects of several years’ duration with the conference director. Challenge to authority is a guaranteed way to make enemies.
Last year I wore the mask to this conference when I did not have enough information about mask wearing and COVID. But this year I REFUSE. I am not a sheep. Don’t you think 2 years of this hysteria is enough—especially for a disease with a 99.997% cure rate and excellent therapeutics? We MUST stand up for science or we will surely lose everything. Only by collectively joining together in protest shall we prevail. We are watching unspeakable tyranny and evil unfold—and it is not unlike the Holocaust in 1930’s Germany. Following orders did not prove to be an acceptable excuse in World War II and it will ultimately be unacceptable in our current war against tyranny.
Forced mask wearing is NOT trivial—it is the gateway to something MUCH worse.
DON’T BE A SHEEP! STAND UP FOR SCIENCE!
