Mask Mandates at Work May Be an Opportunity
A reader writes:
I have read your article on never wearing masks. I don’t believe they protect for viruses and that they are actually harmful. I try to support businesses that do not require them. I usually just walk in and no one says anything. I try to share info with others.
My husband does home care and required to wear paper surgical masks while with patients. He has no choice if he wants to be employed.
Please let me know your thoughts on this. I totally understand that people need to stop wearing them. We live in a blue state with many people living in total fear a believing masks & covid injections will protect them.
Thank you for your time.
Someone with a Case of the Blue State Blues
Thank you for your note and for your support of my work.
If I had need of a home health aid, they would not be in a mask.
I’m not the only person who feels that way.
A reader in Arizona never lets contractors on her property with a mask on. She notifies their superiors beforehand that she is not insured against the added fainting hazard and does not want to take on the liability of a masked person on her property.
On her property and in her life, she fights back doggedly against the evil norm that is being imposed upon her, and she is so often on the offensive that she hardly has the opportunity to find herself on the defensive. She is a true a hero in my life.
You can be assured that someone out there wants a home health aid that is not wearing a mask. That number is certainly in the hundreds of thousands, if not the millions.
The Invention Of The Wheel
The week that the wheel was invented, the guy who was about to launch his first prototype pulled his buddy over to the side to show him his top secret project, and you know what happened when the buddy saw it?
HE LAUGHED AT HIM!
He laughed at him and made fun of him and might have gone around telling the whole village how they wouldn’t believe what “Simon the Dreamer” came up with this time. Some buddy that guy was.
Well, you know what, Simon the Dreamer wasn’t the first guy who came up with the wheel. A non-zero number of people preceded him. Clarence the Dreamer, Fred the Dreamer, Joe the Dreamer, and a bunch of others. The thing that was different about Simon is that he didn’t care that they laughed at him. All those other guys had the idea first, but they got laughed into compliance. They got laughed into submission. They got laughed into obedience.
The world doesn’t just change because of innovators with good ideas. The world changes because of innovators with good ideas and with guts.
It’s no surprise to me that the best economist of the last century, the dreaded “Century of the Great State” (1917-2016), was an economist who had as his personal motto “Do not give into evil but proceed ever more boldly against it.”
He wasn’t just an innovator, a dreamer, a doer, and a man dedicated to his work. He was an innovator a dreamer, a doer, and a man dedicated to his work WHO HAD GUTS.
They didn’t just laugh at him. They ransacked his home. They put him on a wanted list. They burned his library and banned his books. They chased him to kill him.
Are you hearing me?
Because of his ideas, they chased him to kill him.
That’s what they did to Ludwig von Mises. And when the man came to the United States, the treatment hardly stopped. He wasn’t under penalty of death, but he was certainly banned in some quarters, in demonstrations of imbecility nearly as barbaric as the Nazis he ran from.
Sticking Your Neck Out Brings Risk And Reward, In A Cowardly Era Like This It Almost Always Brings Far More Reward Than Anyone Would Ever Imagine
I don’t know why people laugh at and ridicule good ideas. It’s just what most people do. That’s life.
It takes a special person to have the vision to grasp the value of a good idea early on and to also be secure enough in oneself to be able to look greatness in the face and not be threatened, to realize that the man showing you that sliver of greatness may change the world and grow into someone who has no place for a slow grower in their lives. It takes a special person to react that way in the face of greatness.
If Simon the Dreamer would have feared the laughter, and every wheel inventor after him would have feared the laughter, then here we would be in the year 2021 without any wheels.
If your husband really wants to not wear a face mask while working in a healthcare setting, your husband needs to stick his neck out. He needs to take a chance. It’s not a huge chance, but it’s a chance. It’s likely a chance that will pay off.
An Option That Works Successfully 19 Out Of 20 Times With Ease
One option he can take is to read a policy and to invoke an exemption. He can ask to see the policy at work, he can find an exemption, and he can have the discussion with his boss that he won’t be wearing a mask because he fits under that policy. If you have a problem with wearing a face mask, until you’ve read that policy don’t assume you don’t fit under it maskless. Millions of Americans are legitimately exempt from wearing face masks under federal, state, county, city, and private policies which tend to be full of exemptions.
That’s a training wheel maneuver. I wrote the book “Face Masks in One Lesson” to help people have a training wheel method of saying “No!” to face masks. This book was so needed that it became a bestseller its first week out. It’s not my favorite method, but boy does it work.
Literally 19 out of 20 times with almost no friction, these training wheel techniques are being used by thousands to go completely unmasked 100% of the time. It doesn’t really matter that it’s not my favorite method, whatever it takes to get your husband 100% unmasked I advocate for.
The Mask Is A Reall
