The Face Mask: A Powerful Symbol of COVID Oppression

(Vigilant Citizen) After two months of COVID-19 panic and terror, the world is now being ushered into a “new normal”. However, there is nothing “new” nor “normal” about an oppressive police state that haphazardly revokes rights and freedoms while citizens snitch on each other. Nope, such regimes have existed in the past. And, in societies that dare call themselves “free” and “democratic”, the “new normal” is an aberration – a slippery slope towards a global totalitarian regime.

Despite the fact that all viruses inevitably peak and phase-out from human circulation, profound and permanent changes are being made to society. And, to the elite, COVID-19 is the perfect opportunity to create a society that is rooted in fear, dehumanization, and widespread distrust of the “other”.

Since symbols rule the world, one symbol perfectly embodies this “new normal”: The face mask.

A headline from Canada about masks and the “new normal”. Equivalent headlines can be found across the world.

Although face masks were deemed useless and even dangerous only weeks ago, they are now being enforced in several cities around the world. What happened?

Did science make a last-minute, game-changing discovery about masks? No. However, those who are profiting from this crisis saw an opportunity: It can be instrumentalized to create a specific social climate. It is about keeping fear, anxiety, and paranoia going. It is about being constantly reminded that things are NOT going back to normal. In short, it is about social engineering.

Here’s how the usage of the face mask made an inorganic, unnatural about-face in cities worldwide.

Not Necessary
In the early onset of the pandemic, nearly all organizations and specialists advised against wearing a mask. Here’s an infographic made by the World Health Organization (WHO) in late 2019.

“For healthy people wear a mask only if you are taking care of a person with suspected 2019-nCoV infection”.

In March 2020, the WHO was still advising against wearing masks.

Dr. Mike Ryan, executive director of the WHO health emergencies program said at a media briefing:
“There is no specific evidence to suggest that the wearing of masks by the mass population has any potential benefit. In fact, there’s some evidence to suggest the opposite in the misuse of wearing a mask properly or fitting it properly.”
Meanwhile, the US Surgeon General was also urging people to not wear masks.
