People don’t believe the propaganda about the coronavirus. If they did, they wouldn’t leave the house, protected only by flimsy face masks that demonstrably don’t work. From Eric Peters at ericpetersautos.com:
Would you leave your home – even if you weren’t ordered to stay home – if you actually believed the Black Death (or something comparably serious) was in the air and that you stood a very real chance of being killed by it?
Would you trust your life to a dirty old bandana? A disposable “mask”? Feel comfortable because you were standing six feet apart from a possible plague carrier?
Shopping isn’t worth dying. A paycheck is of less value than your life. Yet people shop and work and send their kids to school – Diapered – because they want to pretend they are worried about sickness.
This is the real sickness afflicting America.
The Diaper is a prop.
Kind of like the blanket Peanuts character Linus carried around with him – except not cute.
No one in their right mind – in possession of the facts – would risk the Black Death or something even an eighth as serious for any reason shy of absolute necessity. The evidence – in the form of the bodies, in the form of every third person they know falling mortally ill – as opposed to the cases! the cases! – would keep them hunkered behind their doors until the plague had passed and never mind a dirty bandana over their mouths.
But people out of their minds are out and about, doing pretty much what they were doing before they lost their minds – with a Diaper on, which is the medically useful equivalent of flapping your arms when your parachute doesn’t open.
Cloth bandanas do not bar entry to viruses.
Neither do disposable “masks.”
