Masks Cause Harm: We Need to Protect Our Youngest from Our Government, by 2nd Smartest Guy in the World

New studies keep coming out concluding masks did more harm than good. From the 2nd Smartest Guy in the World at 2ndsmartestguyintheworld.substack.com:


“The CDC is once again promoting policies with no basis in scientific fact, but these policies are reflexively accepted by those whom we trust to care for our children. Covid may be “over” for many of us, but not so for many of our children,” wrote Dr. Robert Malone.

According to Wikipedia, by the beginning of April 2020, prominent national and intergovernmental health agencies and their leaders had recommended the use of masks to “reduce transmission, including the [World Health Organisation] WHO, American, European and Chinese Centres for Disease Control and Prevention, and American immunologist and NIAID Director Anthony Fauci.”

By August 2020 more than 50 countries had made face coverings compulsory when people were outside their own homes “in an attempt to slow down the spread of the novel coronavirus.”

In March 2021, an estimated 129 billion face masks were used per month.  In April 2021, Masks4all noted that more than 40 countries had mandated the use of face masks.  Masks4all were campaigning for masks to be made compulsory in all US states because, in their unscientific, misguided and harmful view: “We need every state to enforce mask-wearing in public …  If you go out without a mask, you might kill someone. You wouldn’t even know it. If you see someone out without a mask, they could kill you.”

And those who profit from selling face masks seem to be hopeful the use of face masks will continue for the foreseeable future. An article in May 2022 published by MarketWatch stated that over the next five years the disposable face masks market will register a magnificent spike in [compound annual growth rate] CAGR in terms of revenue,  The disposable face masks market revenue … will reach multi-million USD in 2026, with a magnificent CAGR during 2020-2026.”

It’s Long Past Time to Dump the Masks, by Scott Morefield

Future generations will look back on the mask obsession the same way we look back on the Salem witch trials. From Scott Morefield at brownstone.org:

The face mask debate is unfortunately again rearing its ugly head in many parts of the country, and it’s becoming ever more clear that it will never entirely go away. Even as OMICRON confers some form of natural immunity to large segments of the population before it begins its fade into the sunset, the next sniffle-causing variant will inevitably come along and again compel paranoid hypochondriac leftists to cover their faces and hysterically demand you do so as well. Sadly, manufactured fear over Covid has truly broken so many people who will never, ever be the same.

Our side, the side of truth, data, and reality, can point to pre-Covid studies that showed masks to be non-effective against virus spread ‘till the cows come home. Theirs can point to non-randomized controlled ‘studies’ (you know, because having a control group in a ‘pandemic’ would be ‘unethical’) that use mannequins, models, or super-cherry-picked snippets of data from areas and time periods that they think bolster their narrative. But it seems that neither can land the deciding blow, both because of the lack of correctly administered randomized controlled studies in the Covid era and also because of the purportedly ‘common sense’ perception that that piece of cloth over everyone’s face is a ‘zero-cost’ intervention (it isn’t) that is totally worth it even if it helps a little (it doesn’t).

Sadly, the difficult-to-counter ‘iT WoULd hAvE BeEn WoooOrSe’ response has become the reliable Branch Covidian go-to when attempting to defend their useless interventions. But would it have been, really?

Enter Ian Miller, an entertainment industry content manager who, like many of us, quickly began questioning the establishment Covid narrative when it didn’t seem to line up with the actual facts on the ground. But instead of surrendering to defeat, Miller promptly put his day job experience dabbling in data analysis to work creating and distributing eye-popping charts that soon made him a Team Reality celebrity and a Branch Covidien foil.

Top 8 ways Covid face masks are HARMFUL as analyzed by a physician and former medical journal editor, by S.D. Wells

Not only are masks worthless as a way to prevent either the transmission or contraction of Covid, but they cause actual harm to the wearer. From S.D. Wells at naturalnews.com:

Image: Top 8 ways Covid face masks are HARMFUL as analyzed by a physician and former medical journal editor

(Natural News) Billions of people worldwide are terrified of the China Flu and will do everything they are told to do to avoid catching it, but that’s where the biggest problems come into play. It is theorized that much of the advice about Covid prevention and minimization is fundamentally flawed, and some to the extent that it makes matters worse, endangering the lives of those who follow it and those around those “sheeple” followers. There are no better examples of this than all those mask wearers seen everywhere, every day. Some folks even wear their masks when they are outside away from other people, or even when alone in their automobile.

Thanks to mass media, vaccine-shilling talking heads, and fake “experts” promoting mask-wearing, billions of people are accomplishing the exact opposite of their goals in warding off Covid – they’re setting themselves up for infection of the worst kind.

Have you experienced the health detriment of wearing a Covid mask for hours on end? People are experiencing nausea, headaches, shortness of breath, blurred vision, compromised hearing, hindered communication abilities, and those are just the symptoms of health detriment that are being “bred” by the masks. A physician and former medical journal editor is blowing the whistle on the whole mask scam, proving how they add to the chaos of the pandemic, weakening humans, and setting people up for exactly what they’re trying so hard to avoid.

Another Diaper Departure, by Eric Peters

Nobody has protested longer, louder, and more lucidly against Covid-19 facemasking than Eric Peters. From Peters at ericpetersautos.com:


One of my best friends – I will not mention his name, for reasons which will become apparent – just got ejected (almost violently) from the Roanoke cop-op in the Grandin Road area of Roanoke, Va.

I mention their name for reasons that should already be apparent.

My friend has been a long-time customer of the co-op’s and has known people who work there for years, including a woman he thought he was on friendly terms with. He just discovered the true nature of their relationship.

As he walked in the store – his face showing – he was met with a barrage of importuning, directed his way by the woman he thought he knew.

“You have to wear a mask!” she exclaimed.


My friend – who is a medical man and knows the answers to this question – asked her why. “You are putting people at risk!” she yelled.

My friend attempted to explain otherwise, which he is in a position to do, as he possesses the curriculum vitae to speak with authority on the subject. This woman knows that my friend possesses the CVs; knows what he does for a living.

It didn’t matter.

Including the fact – right there on the box – that a disposable “mask” does not serve as a barrier to viruses, inhaled or exhaled. And of course more fundamentally, the fact that a person who isn’t afflicted with a virus is incapable of spreading it.

Fear trumps all.

Where is the Law Against Showing Your Face? by Eric Peters

Governors executive orders are not laws. Laws are passed by legislatures and signed by governors. From Eric Peters at ericpetersautos.com:

One way to fight the Corona monomaniacs – the very sick people who insist that “Corona” trumps everything, cost no object (whether in money or diminution of life) and who are “mandating” that everyone “wear a mask” everywhere they go – is to not wear the “mask.”

Showing your face is a visual repudiation of their emotional blackmail. Their despicable demand that you look as though you agree with their hysterical hypochondria – by hiding your face behind a “mask.” By looking like am imbecile – someone who believes that a rag worn over one’s face filters out a virus or prevents a virus from being spread.

Another is to oblige them to charge you with a statutory offense for showing your face.

In almost every state, there is a “mandate” or “guideline” ordering everyone to hide their face. But in no state has a law been passed obliging people to do so – nor to stand six feet apart or perform any other act of Sickness Kabuki.

If there is no law, the there can be no charge – or conviction.

Not without admitting – openly – that we live under tyranny. That they can arrest and cage us at their pleasure.

This is an important point, at least  insofar as exposing the fiction that the United States and the states which comprise it are governed by laws duly passed by legislators who are elected by the people to represent them.

Final Words on Masks, by Dr. Mark Sircus

Mask mandates have nothing to do with health (most masks are completely ineffective) and everything to do with control. From Dr. Mark Sircus at lewrockwell.com:

We have to stop that deadly virus that is so incredibly virulent that, according to the CDC, 99.8% of those exposed to it survive. Wear your masks is the order of the day, but along the way, many, including the Surgeon General of the United States, have said it is a waste of time.

That did not stop Germany from becoming the first country to impose a fine on all non-mask wearers. Chancellor Angela Merkel announced during a virtual meeting in September with state governors that almost the entire country will be under a 50 euros minimum ($59) fine for breaching the national mask mandate.

The use of face masks has become a highly politicized issue throughout the pandemic, with some individuals claiming that wearing a mask can negatively impact a person’s breathing and put their health at risk. Others say it is a useless barrier that lets viral particles in and out with ease. Regardless, the central authorities in our world want you and your children to wear one.

Running, walking, or even socializing outside
is not the cause of the vast majority of
coronavirus outbreaks, regardless of mask usage.

Health officials have gone back and forth on masks, but in general, they like to assure the public that face coverings can safely and effectively prevent the spread of COVID-19 respiratory droplets. Now, in what might be seen as a desperate move, they are promoting their safety with a study that assesses the changes in oxygen and carbon dioxide levels trying to put the best face on the dangers of mask-wearing.

This Masquerade, by Hardscrabble Farmer

The joys of not masking. From Hardscrabble Farmer at theburningplatform.com:

For those of you who keep up with the stories about our life on the farm you are probably aware of my stance on the events surrounding the coronavirus and the reaction to its spread. My personal belief is that any pathogen- regardless of its classification- are naturally occurring organisms necessary to life as we know it. They play a role in a closed system and as such the idea that they can be eradicated is a knee jerk response predicated on a misconception. For the vast majority of living organisms affected by virus, they serve to strengthen the immune system, something that has been left out of the discussion for some reason or another.

In other words, everything that has been done by government, media and corporate entities that control the flow of information and influence behavior have been in error, either mistakenly or deliberately. The false hope of a vaccine, for example, allows for people to believe that at some point virologists will be able to immunize the world’s population more effectively than the very system we were born with, one that protects 99.7% of the human race at no cost as long as people behave in ways that reduce their own bodies ability to produce antigens. It is, in short, a panacea rather than a solution. The best protection against illness is and will always remain, a healthy body and lifestyle. There is simply no means to eliminate risk from life, and in the words of some anonymous Internet genius I recently read, life is the major cause of death.

Diaper Report 9/24/20, by Eric Peters

Mandating face masks has nothing to do with health. From Eric Peters at ericpetersautos.com:

Being Undiapered is a weird thing these days – a measure of just how weird these days are. In the “new normal,” it is considered abnormal to show your face – and normal to walk around with what amounts to a literal Diaper over your face – in terms of medical effectiveness – since any old piece of cloth qualifies.

That’s pretty weird.

Silly, too.

If the WuFlu were the dire omnipresence it’s asserted to be – which assertion flies in the face of the facts, but never mind – then surely any old piece of cloth would not qualify. Nothing less than one of those fairly pricey respirators would be the least people would have to wear.

Plus goggles. Which wouldn’t be silly, if the WuFlu were, in fact, the dire omnipresence it’s asserted to be. But almost no one Goggles – to prevent the exposed surface of your eyes from having virus particles enter your system that way. A wide-open vector for the much-dreaded “spread.”

The Gesundheitsfuhrers do not mandate it; CDC is silent.

Which tells you everything about the “dire omnipresence” of the WuFlu.

Yet almost everyone Diapers – literally. They don’t “PPE” – unless you believe any old piece of cloth protects your person from viruses, which is the same as believing that not stepping on sidewalk cracks will keep your momma’s back intact.

It’s a neurotic habit, normalized via habituation and social pressure.

And it’s a show – of submission.

Which is the dire omnipresence.

If you’re Undiapered; if you refuse to play-pretend that death is in the air and that a dirty old bandana or “mask” that comes out of a box on which it plainly states that it does not protect against the transmission of viruses somehow does, in the manner of keeping your momma’s back intact by not walking on sidewalk cracks.

Mandatory Mask Wearing Is Silent Terrorism Meant for Psychological Submission, by Gary D. Barnett

Given that the medical benefits of masks are questionable, if there are any, what other purposes are served by mandatory masks? From Gary D. Barnett at lewrockwell.com:

“If you are too weak to give yourselves your own law, then a tyrant shall lay his yoke upon you and say:” Obey! Clench your teeth and obey!” “And all good and evil shall be drowned in obedience to him.”

Friedrich Nietzsche

Since when is depriving the body and mind of oxygen, and breathing in expelled carbon dioxide (CO2) good for the health of humans? Since when is wearing a partial face covering that is multiple times more porous than can protect against any virus penetration helpful? Since when is hiding all expression from others not psychologically damaging? Since when is it legitimate and not hypocritical for the state to outlaw Muslim women from wearing head and face coverings that are part of their culture, and in the same breath force all Americans to cover their faces with a mask? Since when does any politician have any right to dictate to an entire population that they have to wear masks or any other type of clothing? Since when in this day and age did absolute slavery of all become a mainstay of American society?

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, is especially instructive of the real agenda sought. That agenda is as clear as day, and is being implemented not only as a test of mass societal compliance, but also to force people apart and to remove closeness, expression, and emotion from the human psyche. This is a purposeful state exercise with the intent of destroying the spirit of the American public, leaving only a society of unfeeling and obedient drones awaiting the next order handed down from on high.

Unmasked, by Gregory Morin

The science, or lack thereof, behind masking. From Gregory Morin at theburningplatform.com:

Why Face Masks DON'T Work, According To SCIENCE in 2020 | Prevention, Plan for life, Face mask

“We know that wearing a mask outside health care facilities offers little, if any, protection from infection. Public health authorities define a significant exposure to Covid-19 as face-to-face contact within 6 feet with a patient with symptomatic Covid-19 that is sustained for at least a few minutes (and some say more than 10 minutes or even 30 minutes). The chance of catching Covid-19 from a passing interaction in a public space is therefore minimal. In many cases, the desire for widespread masking is a reflexive reaction to anxiety over the pandemic.”

New England Journal of Medicine, 2020; 382:363

These days everyone imagines himself or herself to be a scientist. Scolds, who labor under the delusion that reading the New York Times is equivalent to holding a doctorate, unceasingly inflict on us finger-wagging lectures about how we need to “listen to the science” when it comes to masks. Apparently “masks work” because “The Science™” says so. Newsflash: these media figures and self-styled authorities aren’t (largely) scientists and know not of what they speak. As a scientist myself I feel compelled to set the record straight on what is, and is not, science. For those degreed scientists out there parroting the mask propaganda: for shame, you should know better. Cherry picking, selection bias, anecdotal data, and dubious models have no place in the arsenal of scientific inquiry.

What is the claim built on?

Here’s the problem with “the science” about masks: the media cited studies are built on a foundation of sand. They are based on computer models1, anecdotal stories2, theoretical mechanistic (non-biological) analysis, or hypothetical contra factual scenarios.1 In short, if the conclusion of a study rests on “this would have happened” then that is not science. Science does not compare contra factual or hypothetical scenarios. It analyzes concrete, reproducible, controlled conditions (that are broad enough to be statistically valid). In every single story where there has been a reference made to evidence that “masks work” and I have drilled down through the 42 layers of links to get at the actual research document, it turns out the study is, surprise, based on a contra factual model, anecdote, or purely mechanistic study. Every. Single. Time. How do models support the claims?
