May the Fourth Be With Us

Star Wars autism
A long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away.  Life as we knew it. How are you doing, friends? For real. Me? I'm getting way too comfortable with my inner Joan Crawford.

May the force be with you.
And also with you.
Let us go forth to love and serve.... each other*. As best we can.


*Catholics will get that reference. It's a rendition of the last lines of Mass.  Like the shirt? You can order it here.

"Masks and respirators do not work. There have been extensive randomized controlled trial (RCT) studies, and meta-analysis reviews of RCT studies, which all show that masks and respirators do not work to prevent respiratory influenza-like illnesses, or respiratory illnesses believed to be transmitted by droplets and aerosol particles. Furthermore, the relevant known physics and biology, which I review, are such that masks and respirators should not work. It would be a paradox if masks and respirators worked, given what we know about viral respiratory diseases: The main transmission path is long-residence-time aerosol particles (< 2.5 μm), which are too fine to be blocked, and the minimum-infective-dose is smaller than one aerosol particle. The present paper about masks illustrates the degree to which governments, the mainstream media, and institutional propagandists can decide to operate in a science vacuum, or select only incomplete science that serves their interests. Such recklessness is also certainly the case with the current global lockdown of over 1 billion people, an unprecedented experiment in medical and political history."'t_Work_A_review_of_science_relevant_to_COVID-19_social_policy?fbclid=IwAR2t3wBRPucrfNcsaUZZU0dF7-jrLalMjjCrVdQV6x519GuXiK99-7tNo4Y


I think cloth masks do very little to stop transmission from what I have read. I suspect that the recommendation / requirement to wear them is to effect a continuous visible marker that causes people to not get comfortable and cease social distancing which I find does have a bearing on transmission. The mask is a constant reminder to self and others about the "social" circumstance and promotes compliance with the real goal of peer pressure to always listen to government officials and to be afraid enough to never forget to social distance. People that are appealed to by "collective" ideologies will be most active about others compliance. This can be of help or can lead to ceding ones liberties. The governor of Ohio started down the legal enforcement of masks, but reversed course quickly and called that a bridge too far. For a site that rebuffs some common wisdom on vaccines for reasons other than just seeking attention we should;d be restrained in abdicating all individual perspectives and rights on matters at hand. Soon the collective may well demand we all take the new vaccine as they have already forced the children. I am often in the minority ironically.

First they came for the maskless and I did not speak out
Then they came for the vaccine resistant and there was no one left to speak for me.

I am not clear if the "ok being different" is a general idea or issue/s specific to our choices or a reference to neurodiversity. It is a bit confusing.


I’ve thought about what we’ll do when our church reopens for Mass. We’ll wear masks and gloves, how could we not? We’ll push it down for a moment to take Communion. The church is always so full that social distancing would not be possible. But if we didn’t wear masks, we might get Covid ourselves or transmit it to others, which would not be Christian.

And if you insist on attending a religious service .. the "force" of government will give you a summons or arrest you for not wearing a mask while practicing social distancing.
