People were waiting 30 minutes to be seated in an empty restaurant. Truly a Twilight Zone episode. We are willing participants in our own murder.
    For me, it's Star Trek, Episode Charlie X that haunts me

    Charlie X punished a girl by removing her face. Scared the crap out of me as a kid.

    I just treat the maskers as NPCs (Non-Player Characters).

    Shit, Jenni. I知 2.5 hours away north of you and I had no idea Jackson was this bad. I lived in MS until about 3-4 years ago, and even then had no idea it was like that. If you池e ever in the Memphis area and need to train, you池e welcome to my garage gym.

    I知 disgusted by your situation and wish I could help. If I知 ever in Jackson I値l be more than happy to stop by and patronize your business... I値l be the guy not wearing a mask.

    Wolf is right in his thinking. We do have an inherent bias against skepticism (except for the highly analytical, well-practiced, or insane)

    If you are of average intelligence growing up in a jungle somewhere, will you be more likely to survive by blindly taking the advice of village elders about which plants are poisonous or by beginning your own grand experiment to see which plants actually are poisonous?
    Through years of careful observation, you may come to the conclusion that they were wrong about one plant. But, finding the truth and having the courage to act with conviction took a lot of time and effort. And now your social bonds are strained for a time, because you broke the taboo.
    How likely is it that the decision made you more likely to survive and procreate? Unlikely.

    Great propagandists and social engineers rely on this phenomenon to be effective.

    The best counter is to make free thinking, skeptical thought and the uncensored truth widely available.

    People may only take one red pill from the bottle at a time, but they will never take even one red pill from a bottle they can't find.
