“Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies.

Fauci and his allies know already that the masks would come off (both literally and figuratively) if actual human-to-human scientific studies were done.

In the “Science showing the fallacy and inaccuracies of public health mandates to wear face masks,” Dr. Alan Palmer has compiled several scientific studies conducted to determine the effectiveness of face masks on the transmission of influenza and COVID viruses.
