This article is not to prove how unconstitutional mask mandates are or the scientific reasons against them, but rather to bring attention to the numerous rarely thought about ways mask mandates affect many people’s everyday lives.
Life in America is quickly appearing to be using George Orwell’s “1984” as a guidebook, rather than a warning, about the way society should behave under governmental tyranny. Social media has become a tool to fast-track the road to authoritarianism.
The draconian lockdown orders from the Leftist governors, like Gavin Newsom, are increasingly resembling the lockdowns on the Chinese people by the Chinese Communist Party. There is no end in sight. From statewide mask mandates to shutting down businesses to mandatory curfews, parts of our country are mirroring that of a police state. My line was drawn long before any of the tyrannical Orders in this article were drafted. I doubt they believed we’d relinquish so much, so easily. Where do you draw the line?
The censorship on social media platforms extends past the BigTech oligarchy. This breakdown shows how it flows into the branches of “independent fact checkers” who help decide what is ‘best for you to know’ because they think you’re too stupid to form proper opinions or want to hinder your basis of your views by excluding and discrediting important, relevant information.
The late Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg once said, “When a government controls that decision for her, she is being treated as less than a fully adult human responsible for her own choices.” I find this to be a solid argument (much like my own) to be against mask mandates. Wear your mask if you want, but don’t force me to wear one.
