How to oppose federal, state, local, employer, school, and club masking guidelines
Masks don't work. So why do we have masking requirements on planes, at work, etc? What's the best way to end the madness?
I’m currently in a “disagreement” with the management at Martis Camp (a private club adjacent to the Northstar ski resort in Truckee, CA) over their ridiculous masking rules. Their policy is that they “request” that Members wear a mask and, even worse, they require all employees to wear a mask. But apparently what they mean by “request” is “require” since they keep “requesting” I wear a mask (a subtle hint that it is really a requirement even though that’s not what the policy says).
I said there was no scientific basis for that, that mask are harmful to health, and that the local, state, and federal guidelines are all advisory, not mandatory.
They said if I comply with the government guidelines it is not sufficient. They said I must comply with their guidelines. Wow.
They were not interested in discussing the science or medical rational. I asked for the cost-benefit analysis they used to come up with this recommendation. I received nothing. I asked for the name of their (obviously incompetent) medical advisor who is advising the board, and received no answer.
This is ridiculous. What is happening at Martis Camp is no different than what is happening everywhere else. The fact that science doesn’t matter to any of these people is evidence of mass brainwashing. People do what the are told to do, even if it harms their health. They don’t question authority even when the authority is wrong.
Can we fight back and start to challenge these rules?
There are at least seven different cases here:
Federal guidelines, most notably on airplanes
Local (county) guidelines
School / university guidelines (private and public)
Private club guidelines
Which of these can be successfully challenged on the basis that masks have no benefit and are harmful to health?
Actions you can take:
Provide your advice to me in the comments, especially if you know where these regulations have been successfully challenged and overturned. Update: many of you referred me to Peggy Hall and The Healthy American. Her name keeps coming up for sure.
