At LewRockwell.com, Gary D. Barnett makes the case that forced mask-wearing and social distancing are simply “compliance tests used by the controlling ‘elite’ to see how weak and pathetic this population has become.” He writes (abridged):
In order for freedom to exist, it is up to the people at large to ensure that no government has enough power to infringe on the liberty of any individual citizen.
The most telling aspect of this phenomenon is the near total compliance by the general population of mandated mask wearing and social distancing. By acquiescing to these orders handed down by the political class, it is apparent that the masses are nothing more than slaves, and are either totally indifferent or ignorant of any reality concerning their own well-being or any natural desire for freedom. When people en masse are willing to take orders from a controlling force called government, then they become the greatest threat to the whole.
Mask wearing and social distancing are nothing more than compliance tests used by the controlling ‘elite’ to see how weak and pathetic this population has become. This was necessary in order to find out if this country was ready to be taken over by the few oligarchs in power.
“Forced mask wearing due to political control over people is a major aspect of the tyrannical response to this fraudulent virus ‘pandemic.’ Social distancing, forced testing, quarantines, mandated business closings, temperature checks, mass surveillance, and any number of other atrocious invasions of privacy are all demeaning and oppressive, but the state and local orders supported by the national political and ‘health’ organizations to wear masks.
Masks and distancing will lead to vaccination, and once a majority receives any fraudulent Covid vaccination, physical and mental problems will escalate, and sickness will become prevalent. Every aspect of the state’s plan for population control, takeover, and global reset is dependent on compliance by the herd at every stage of tyranny.
