“Don’t you see, we SS men were not supposed to think about these things; it never even occurred to us…We were all so trained to obey orders without even thinking that the thought of disobeying an order would simply never have occurred to anybody, and somebody else would have done just as well if I hadn’t…I really never gave much thought to whether it was wrong.”
Rudolf Hoss, Nazi Commandant, Auschwitz Concentration Camp
In the last week I have seen videos online, interviews on television, and personally experienced on numerous occasions people explaining to me that I must wear a mask “because it’s the rule/mandate/law.”
As we wrote about HERE, in America we are supposed to govern as a REPUBLIC, which means the majority rules while minority rights are respected. In order to do this, there must be a moral standard.
Only just laws can be legislated. No law can be legislated which violates the moral standard of “the Law of Nature and of Nature’s God” legally defined at the time of the founding as “the will of God” and “Holy Scripture.”
Therefore, telling someone they must do something immoral/unjust – something that harms them or infringes on their unalienable rights – per the moral standard “because it’s the law” or because “I’m just following orders” makes one no better than a Nazi gate guard.
I spent ten (10) years as an Advanced Capability Medic in the FBI, and a few years as an EMT prior to that in and out of the Marine Corps. I spent a lot of time in hospitals, on flight/trauma teams, and treated many patients in the U.S. and overseas, worked in surgery, and taught combat medical skills courses in the FBI.
Masks and other protective gear (e.g. glasses) are meant to protect the wearer from blood, vomitus, and other bodily fluids of the patients. Store bought surgical masks are not meant for preventing influenza virus from passing through them. Just read the box.
The cloth masks people are buying with funny pictures and sayings on them or the bandanas are even more useless. Like throwing sand through a chain-link fence, these masks do not stop the covid virus from passing through.
To say masks stop the spread of Covid-19 is a lie, and everyone with the capacity to process information knows it. See Dr. Fauci say it HERE.
The lockdowns and mask mandates are tools of oppression used by totalitarian statists to subdue the population. It appears to be working.
In the past week, I have taken the time to speak with several people who insist I wear a mask. From the grocery store manager, to the manager of a high-end Dallas restaurant, to the usher at church, to the TSA officer, they all say the same thing.
“It’s a rule.”
“It’s a mandate.”
“It’s church policy.”
These people are infringing on our unalienable right to be free in our person because of a lie. Not to mention long-term mask-wearing has negative physical, mental and social effects as well.
When traveling home last Sunday, my exchange with the TSA officer checking my ticket and ID went like this:
TSA: “Do you have a mask?”
TSA: “You must put it on right now.”
Me: “You do know these masks do not work in stopping the spread of covid right.”
TSA: “It doesn’t matter. President Joe Biden ordered masks be worn on all federal property.”
I didn’t take the time to tell her the airport we were at is NOT federal property.
“Follow the rules. Don’t think.”
“Do as you are told. I am just doing my job.”
It is just a matter of time. What is happening in America is following a pattern. The same pattern history witnessed in the Soviet Union, Nazi Germany, Mao’s China, Venezuela…
“Wear your mask.”
“Don’t think. Don’t question the experts.”
“Stop being a troublemaker.”
“Just get on the train.”
