1.) Thinking your decisions do not matter
The number one lie that modernity can tell you about yourself is that your decisions do not matter. Every moment, of every day, allows you an unlimited number of decisions. They matter deeply, as those actions show who you are and what you are made of. They also set the course for who you one day will become.
2.) Thinking no one is watching you
You are always being watched, by friend and foe alike. The overwhelming mass of people around you have no idea who to follow, so they are constantly looking for cues to help them figure that out. When you do as everyone else, you do not provide such cues. When you behave differently, you do provide those cues, but they will watch cautiously to see how you fare. Even strangers are watching you, talking about you, and evaluating you for long-term leadership potential. Imagine how much more those closest to you are paying attention.
3.) Telling yourself the lie that you do it for your kids
Your kids need to see a parental figure with bravery. Ideally, that is the dad leading, with the mom joining along. When you do not give them that, you promise them a complex set of problems that they will one day need to resolve. They will develop bravery late in life, if at all. They will under-develop in the many ways that the children of absent fathers do. When you fail to act like the protector and leader in the family, even if you are physically present, your words mean next to nothing, for you signal to them exactly what your actions show — they have a male in their lives, but he is no man, and he is hardly deserving of the term dad.
4.) Thinking you have no power
Well, if you can be convinced of your impotency in life, then you assure yourself impotency in life. That much is certain. Little more needs to be done to neutralize you as a threat. Any man worth his salt is always seen as some type of threat to all men around him, even family, even close friends. You can get comfortable with another man, you can trust another man, but there is always some level of edge to that man, leaving you a little uncertain. When he parts with that, he has shown that he has parted with his power.
5.) Thinking “It’s just a mask”
The mask represents so much more. Everyone around you knows that. They know it either consciously or subconsciously, but they know it, and you are broadcasting that nonsense to them when you comply with the mask. You tell them you have no boundaries, and there is so much else you will comply with. The man mentioned above who keeps his edge — his unpredictability — is an asset that others can find comfort in, because he will stick his neck out to stand by his values. If you cross his boundaries, you may find an unpredictable and unpleasant response. Maybe his actions can feel prickly and unpredictable, but his firm boundaries and his resolute defense of his values is so very predictable and reassuring.
The man who wears the mask, on the other hand, cannot be one who provides true comfort to others around him, for he has no boundaries. He provides the comfort that an old naugahyde couch offers — at once squishy and worn out — but he does not provide the comfort that others can find in the presence of a man who has come into his own and lives by his values.
This seems paradoxical for some, especially in this era — the edgy man who will get out of line when his boundaries are crossed, is more comforting than the comfortable naugahyde couch of a man, who never gets out of line, no matter what — but that is the reality.
6.) Trusting the wrong people
Many masked men believe the news media. The news media was once deserving of the term “Fourth Estate,” for they were an independent entity, separate from the established interests in society. Not here. Not now. They are mere shills for the status quo. Anyone who told you to mask up deserves for you to never listen to them again. Others were wise enough to at least not believe the media. But they did even worse in a way — they believed their bosses, their family members, their neighbors, and their doctors who fell for this, precisely because they believed the media, all the while assuring you that they followed “the science.” Not only were you gullible enough for them to lie to you, but you were so errant in your ways as to not ask them for the alleged proof of science they assured you they were following. If you would have, you would never have worn a mask. There is simply no legitimate science backing up any masking policy.
7.) Surrounding yourself with the wrong people
They say you are the sum of the five people you surround yourself with most. I tend to agree with that. Surrounding yourself with those smarter than you, holds you to a higher standard. Surrounding yourself with those richer than you, holds you to a higher standard. Surrounding yourself with those braver than you, holds you to a higher standard. Surrounding yourself with those dumber, poorer, or more cowardly than you is a great way to go through life with lower standards and talking about the things low standard people talk about with each other.
8.) Letting life knock you down
A man who would put on a mask without being held down and forcibly masked by at least eight guys, is no man I want to be around. To that man, I say: I have looked you in the eyes. Life has gotten the best of you. I get it. That is no reason to live another day that way. Just say no to the mask.

We Often Feel Like David Taking on Giants
Today’s Goliath is the Mainstream Media Industrial Complex that brainwashes the masses.
Our mission is very straightforward: To counter the false narratives and nefarious agendas destroying America today. It isn’t easy for obvious reasons; despite incredible growth over the last year we are still a very tiny fish in a huge media pond. But we’re fighting and we will continue to do so, Lord willing, for as long as we possibly can. The battle for America’s present and future is too important for us to back down to the giants that stand in our way.
We need help. I don’t want to say “desperately,” but the need is definitely great. If you have the means, please donate through our GivingFuel page, PayPal, or our Substack page. Your generosity is what keeps these sites running and allows us to get the truth to the masses. We’ve had great success in growing but we know we can do more with your assistance.
Thank you, and God Bless!
Covid variant BA.5 is spreading. It appears milder but much more contagious and evades natural immunity. Best to boost your immune system with new Z-Dtox and Z-Stack nutraceuticals from our dear friend, the late Dr. Vladimir Zelenko.
There are no smart people that mask themselves for Covid protection…
None at all…
Covid is over …..If you want it!
If a person is still wearing a mask, they are either very stupid, or scared stiff. These are the types who don’t bother to question authority and succumb easily to being told what to do. And then there are the morons who wear a mask while driving their car with no one else around.
For our immune system to work it must be challenged often and if everyone wears a mask or stays home to protect themselves from a virus, they are essentially disabling their immune system because the person is trying to hide it from its natural operation.
Then, and then Americans are being advised to have multiple mRNA inoculations, each one destroying the immune system, such that this coming winter, we’ll see many more thousands dying from things as small as a normal winter cold.
I drive a bus in Portland Oregon. I don’t wear a mask. Yet my bus was full of business types going to work all wearing a mask. Mostly 20-30 year old. Different neighborhoods and times of day yield different results. These look like smart people but yet they have little concept of how the immune system works.
They wear the mask because the fear still controls them. For 2 years 24/7 we were given constant covid statistics. Telling us to be afraid. Get the shot wear a mask. Six feet. Isolate. Some people are weak and insecure and need to follow. So the fear still controls them.
Allan Stevo et al,
Do you understand the 5th Amendment re freedom from self incrimination? Yes?
Then why do you file self incrimination confession forms to the government every April?
Don’t you know others are watching you?
Don’t you know how self contradictory and cowardly it looks, especially to those close to you?
Aren’t you informed, haven’t you read Congress’ Grace Commission Report and know that none of the money you pay in income tax pays for anything in this country? Irrefutable fact.
“When you fail to act like the protector and leader in the family, even if you are physically present, your words mean next to nothing, for you signal to them exactly what your actions show — they have a male in their lives, but he is no man, and he is hardly deserving of the term dad.”
Does this position apply to one claiming to lead but blatantly violates basic principles of character, like filing 5th Amendment violating, self incriminating tax returns, out of fear?
Real Americans don’t grovel to tyrannical government.
Real leaders lead by example.
Masks aren’t the only sign of being a good leader, a man or a good American:
“A man who would (file a 5A violating self confession tax return) without being held down and forcibly made to by at least eight guys, is no man I want to be around. To that man, I say: I have looked you in the eyes. Life has gotten the best of you. I get it. That is no reason to live another day that way. Just say no to violating your basic human rights”.
I was enjoying this article until about halfway in and realized this is an article for men specifically.. oops!
At any rate, I never put on a mask and I never follow the mob.
