It’s possible, at least a little, that draconian degradation of liberty doesn’t apply to everyone. As is the case with media members who appear to remove their face masks as soon as they think the cameras cease rolling.
The breach of our social contract takes place in Chicago at mayor Lori Lightfoot’s coronavirus press conference. The presser, ripe with prospects of doom and gloom, occurs while media members don protective face masks. But as soon as the presser ends, it appears, massive coronavirus immunity sets in and members of the media remove the masks. Additionally, Mayor Lightfoot opts out of social distancing guidelines as terrifying maskless media members walk only inches away from her.
Yes, folks, the rules are only for you. In this case, one might surmise that the masks are props to aid in fear-mongering news narratives. I’m not saying masks don’t work, I’m saying those who take them off when they feel no one is watching don’t believe they are needed. That’s a difficult point to counter. These are things we see with our own eyes.
