Well don't let facts interfere with your nice synopsis of the world as it is ( in your opinion ). You presented non specific allegations, false or incomplete or manipulated information. Masks offer about a 25% improvement in odds of contracting or sharing the virus. They are not useless.
You know, the US has a few powerful competitors in the world, who are engaged in a disinformation campaign aimed at manipulating how our population feels about our form of government, our institutions, and each other. No expense is being spared. The beauty of their project, is that there are millions of our citizens who eat up all this crap that you willingly believe, and push. You are being duped, so that you can dupe others. Everything you said in this catch-all summation is a fairy tale. Everything a generalization...except the wealth transfer, which has nothing to do with masks. That's about greed and corruption. Another happy story.
Don't feel alone though, as I said, millions are in your camp. Just know it's wrong and counterproductive.
Everything you just said is your opinion. Everyone has one. My conclusions include several years of research so far, and also 40 years of studying that book we can't mention on TN, unless we are in the right forum.
If you don't realize that the so-called world is working together on this, then you are deceived. It is those that go along with the program that will soon find out that they have been duped, and find themselves at a new world learning center/camp.
so...continue with your path, and I shall stay on mine......you have that right.
The operative words here being "Lock down" the Precautions, and "block" the Virus.
The Fact is that New Zealand Followed The Recommended Precautions as a Whole. And by doing so, UNIFORMLY and early, they were able to CONTROL it. It Worked.
The size of the population played no role in the fact that It Worked, what Did is the UNIFORMITY of the precautions taken to suppress the virus. The point being made was, (whether it's 5000 people or 5,000,000), in order to control the spread of the virus the Precautions have to be followed by ALL. Something we are failing miserably to do in this divided country.
The faster we are All following The Recommended Precautions as a Whole...the faster we can control it (as they have proven in New Zealand) and prevent more needless loss of life until a vaccine can be created that will make uniform precautions unnecessary in the future.
Whatever happened to that battle cry, "Flatten the curve!"?
Now the call to arms seems to be, "Wear a mask or you put others at risk."
Sweden didn't try to flatten anything. They just let it run its course, which it did already. Spain had a totalitarian lockdown and now they are experiencing a second wave.
It could be that fighting a virus such as this is like fighting intestinal dysentery. Just got to let that dysentery run it's course, if you take Pepto-Bismol to try to cork it then it just legthens the discomfort. I don't know about this virus and you don't know either. The "science" is incomplete.....
...as if science can ever be complete.
True being on an island would help with keeping out more infected people from coming in, but do you also believe that the whole country having a national plan and everyone being on the same page in implementing it also contributed to their success?
Nope. When you have a tiny island country with small population of 5 million, 3 per square km vs America's 328 million with 35 per square km there is a difference, much easier to close tiny island. To explain it further would be political and not allowed here.
