These Are The “Experts” Your Present And Future Masters Rely Upon

If I weren’t so sick of this topic, it would deserve longer post…a rant
Reason reports that many epidemiologists believe we should all wear
masks and socially distance forever:
“I expect that wearing a mask will become part of my daily life, moving
forward, even after a vaccine is deployed,” Amy Hobbs, a research
associate at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health
says.Marilyn Tseng, an assistant professor at California Polytechnic
State University, said life would never revert to the way it was, though
the preventative measures currently practiced—masks and social
distancing—will feel “normal” in time. Similarly, Vasily Vlassov, a
professor at HSE University in Moscow, said life was perfectly normal
now because this is the new normal….”
Of course they say that. Are you surprised?
Do you detest these people yet? Do you see any reason to trust them to
dictate public policy and to influence dictatorial public officials to
constricting our enjoyment of life now and for future generations?
Writes the libertarian publication’s Robby Soave:
Epidemiologists are free to take whatever precautions they deem
necessary in their own lives, of course—as are the rest of us. But for
too long, their pessimistic dictates have provided cover for politicians
and government employees to make people’s lives miserable. To take just
the most obvious example, schools are still closed in many major cities,
even as new scientific information has generally found that resuming
in-person education would be perfectly fine. Teachers unions have echoed
the choruses of the most alarmed public health experts, scrawling not
until it’s safe on their school reopening protest signs.
This isn’t science, or safety, or even cautious. What we are hearing and
seeing is the cynical and sinister exploitation of over-blown authority
conferred on those with a distorted view of life and reality to provide
cover for government control of our lives. Joe Biden says he is going to
“ask” Americans to wear masks for the next 100 days, presumably all the
time. I say that I’m going to metaphorically tell him to to take his
“request” and shove it.
I’m not going to wear a mask inside my home, nor in my car, nor outside
while playing with my dog, and I’m going to regard anyone who follows
this edict with a “please” attached as an enemy of my future liberty as
