Emily Oster wrote an article for Atlantic about the draconian lockdowns and COVID mandates, and the title of her piece was "Let's Declare A Pandemic Amnesty." She now wants to be friends with everyone. Her article also talked about her side of the story, and she had actually apologized for what she had said.
She asked those who were bullied to give the bullies a break. The policies that were enacted by politicians and bureaucrats were in good faith and did not violate the rights of the people.
In her opening paragraph, Oster talked about how she and her family used cloth masks outside. She also described how she would force her four-year-old to yell "SOCIAL DISTANCING!" at people who didn't belong to her family. She said that they didn't know about how rare it was for transmission in the open air.
If you were a card-carrying cultist, a Darwin Award winner, or had the common sense of a cumquat, you would know that wearing a mask on a beach is considered to be a form of theater. I was insulted by the people who wore masks, and I felt like I had been given space by them.
They would often use their saucer eyes and palm out to me in response to my rule-breaking. One time, a woman yelled at me and told me to put on a mask. In the past, I had seen kids wearing masks in the park.
A local attorney in Florida became famous after he bought a grim-reaper mask and tried to scare away beachgoers. Daniel Uhlfelder ran for office as a Democrat, but he didn't make it past the primary. Even his party members had tired of his behavior.
Although I don't know about the rest of the country, I can tell you that in California, we still have to wear a mask when going to the doctor's office or hospital. A recent article in Nature talked about the tests that were conducted on various types of masks. It was revealed that titanium dioxide was found in some of the fibers.
Titanium dioxide is known to be a suspected carcinogen, and we will not know the long-term effects of exposure to this substance on our bodies for a long time. Because of this, the people who claim that all-day mandates for the use of masks cause cancer will have a hard time proving their claims.
The kids who were forced to "remote learn" did not learn much. When they returned to school after being subjected to mask mandates, their test scores dropped. Besides being exposed to potentially harmful toxins, the lack of facial cues also affected their psychological health.
There is so much proof that masks do not work as well as they were claimed to have in controlling the spread of COVID-19. Social media trolls have also started to believe that this is not the case.
Lockdownes were first used to stop the spread of COVID-19. They lasted for several weeks, and they ruined the lives of many people. Cultists claimed that these were necessary because they prevented the elderly from seeing their loved ones.
In addition, old people who succumbed to COVID-19 were never touched by their loved ones as they shed their final breath. There is also little evidence supporting the notion that lockdowns worked. In February 2022, a study conducted by Johns Hopkins University's Institute for Applied Economics concluded that they did not reduce mortality rates and did enormous damage.
Despite the fact that lockdowns have no known effects on public health, they have imposed huge social and economic burdens on the communities they were adopted in. As a result, lockdown policies should be discarded as a pandemic policy tool.
In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, Sweden decided not to lock down its schools and businesses. Despite the criticism from experts, the country decided to remain open.
According to studies, masks did not stop the spread of COVID-19. They also cost the public a huge amount of money and did not have any positive effects on public health. COVID scolds are now asking for forgiveness for their actions, such as telling their kids to yell at people.
