Re: Abused for wearing mask on Bus!

Since I came back from holiday people seem to have forgotten about masks, finally. I've visited clients in offices and absolutely nobody wears a mask anymore, which is very very refreshing.

You don't have to cross the ocean. I was in a sunny restaurant terrace yesterday in Sursee. Plenty of people, no masks, everyone drinking normally.

Re: Abused for wearing mask on Bus!

I had some dhl parcels coming in lately and gardeners and electrician.. and each time I see them how once they get out of the car/van they get their equipment and then stop and try to put a mask on ...

And me, I'm yelling from the window or the door , no no no dont worry ,no mask please !! and they're confused a bit but smiling and saying "oh good , thanks" ..

Then I start the anti mask talk and we agree on it and it's just wonderful. We're knocking off this world Republic of Gilead by small steps

And seriously.. it's a one thing for us people like marton and me who are sitting on their bum spinning keys around their finger all day ... but a totally different world for those who WORK all day with that plastic wrapper on their face and NOSE... I can be egoistic and say "yeaah masks please I dont WANT TO DIE"(jjust as our lovely corp media is instructing us to think) ahah but no, I'm worried for the health of those who are on their feet all day being muzzled.

Could that be because you don't have to wear a mask when you're eating or drinking?

Absolutely, because a requirement to wear masks on public transport and in shops and other enclosed areas is exactly equivalent to enforced sexual slavery of the majority of women.

As every, you're hysterical.

That's the point.

I know there are places with crazy policies and their enforcement like France or Australia. But, we're not there. Don't know why people look for the worst situation possible in the world and then complain as if they had to endure that.

I don't think anyone complained about CH mask laws. I'm quite happy with them, they are pretty much optional.

I showed example of what's happening in France.

While you're rolling eyes.. Let's see how this very intelligent man NotAllThere thinks and reasons and let's analyse his superficial logic & conclusion.

You wrote in a sweet cynical way, how "Absolutely, because a requirement to wear masks on public..." "equvalent to sexual slavery"..

If I complain about masks, muzzle or niqab.. it can be because I know how they're harmfull and useless and I certainly wont put anything on my mouth and nose to obstruct the most vital element for our organism like - breathing.

Then, I have the privilege because I dont have to work with a mask on.
The reason why I am fighting against the mask, is because it's not about fairdinkum going for some shopping and then whining how I had to wear the mask for 20min...But all these people who WORK all day with a plastic wrapper on their mouth and nose. These people are not surgeons so they are doing 0 steps and physical activity during the operation but people who work 5,6,8 hours filling shelfs with food, baking bread, delivering parcels, SERVING meals in restaurants going up and down all day at all different temperatures, heat etc...

If you dont see the problem on this picture then maybe we can hope they'll invent intelligence boosting vaccines??)

In fact what bothers me is how come this is not something we should be talking about, raging, cursing, yelling but no, .. Remember how everyone had something to say about women wearing burqa,niqab,chador, we were all appalled by it?? We'd be fuming with rage at our schools if they let 11 y olds wearing a burqa (which btw does not cover the mouth or nose) because it's oppressive ... and not normal for a child .

Now we see this and many other photos like this one and we're like, hmm Fine, Good.. whatever... (must be good for them?)

Re: Abused for wearing mask on Bus!

Now to Part 2:
(where we can see the level of superficiality demonstrated just before)

If you react to my comment about the Gilead Republic... with "women slavery" then where do I start explaining you how you've missed the whole point ?

In that book or series, the sexual slavery is only symbolic.
Those who have power and chose to install ridiculous rules, insane measures, but most of all - strip people of their liberties, common sense, dignity have decided and used the "sexual slavery" but that's only in the first picture if you look at the big picture... there is an equal slavery for the others.. for the young boy who is 19y and has to serve and hang people just because they kissed, or broke a sick rule ... cant you see slavery in that ?

It's more about the compliance, of how people would and will accept authority if they see an opportunity for themselves (let's say you see how you can earn 100timesmore and be considered 100times more intelligent thenof course! you will accept to be a part of that new model of how the state,culture will function, with vax passports or whatever) )

It's also about how one slavery is only one wagon of the locomotive that has many other wagons in line ...

Superficiality is shown as well when one thinks how if you complain against a totalitarian rule it's because it concerns only -you.
When one complains against the thatburqa/niqab for ex. most people think how it's fighting the oppression done against women. But in fact it isnt. Simply because (again the same principe) one oppression is just one of the many others that are standing in line.
The problem is, as much as women have to wear the niqab/burka and be just walking dead in a way.. there's at the same time the practice known as bacha bazi that's even more horrible than this. There was also a killer article from Joseph Goldstein NYT on this topic few years ago..

Bottom line, Power/Authority can put a Gilead Republic in no time in front of our eyes and we'd be still just reading headlines and having anger at other people who'd be noted as "the stupid ones, the ones who wont listen, obey..) and just like the situation is now, everyone is against anti-mask people anti vacc but no one is having a go at the elite, the people in charge and so on . . wonder why ?

PS. Everything must be really good With the trillions they made last year and we lost jobs, liberties, $$$, I guess they're just fighting for our health so we better be grateful

At 5:35 p.m. on Friday, a plane took off from Zurich to Belgrade. The passengers looked forward to their vacation or to return to their homeland. But the machine did not get into the air.
Four passengers refused to put on their masks. Coaxing was of no use.
The captain had no other option than to drive the plane back to the gate and call the canton police.

The police came on the plane with four men and arrested the people.

Just wait for your next surgery when you see the surgeon shows you all his teeth (okay, her's maybe) in a huge smile and tells you "finally we're not forced to wear those darn masks anymore".

Minions do what their minions bosses told them to do.

Unfortunately corporation have to surrender to brainless politicians who just want to keep their seats and do whatever necessary to satisfy local wokes. Look at Australia and new Zealand as perfect proof of that.

Study shows that surgical masks are not effective and yet airline companies require them, provided they have HEPA filters (there hasn't been a single study about their efficiency btw)
