Masks are part of the narrative. Part of the “story” that we are in a “global pandemic”. It’s part of the street theatre concocted by the Scientific Pandemic Influenza Group on Behaviour (SPI-B), who are the behavioural psychologists feeding into SAGE to advise on how to manipulate the population.
SPI-B warned in March last year that ministers needed to increase “the perceived level of personal threat” from Covid-19 because “a substantial number of people still do not feel sufficiently personally threatened”. Masks was one of the ideas they came up with as it was a external sign we were all at risk from others.
If you cast your mind back to early last year… that’s why the “experts” original advice was “No need for the general public to wear masks.” and turned into “Masks are mandatory and must be worn by everyone!” in just a couple of weeks. The science didn’t change in just a few days. The message changed to support the narrative they wanted everyone to believe.
Since then, several SPI-B psychologists have come out and branded their work in the use of fear to control people’s behaviour during the Covid pandemic as “unethical” and “totalitarian”. So, they themselves have said it.
