A new study, the results of which were recently published in The Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, appears to show that the simple act of talking can transmit diseases like the coronavirus. This is because respiratory droplets produced during normal indoor conversation can supposedly remain suspended in the air for eight to 14 minutes. These droplets, which carry the virus, eventually settle, often landing on surfaces such as tables, faucets and doorknobs. Researchers say this could explain how people with mild or no symptoms may infect others in close quarters such as offices, elevators, nursing homes, cruise ships and other confined spaces.
The findings are thrilling academics, elites and rulers, as they strengthen the case for forcing citizens to wear masks. It is just a matter of time before some of them use the study’s results to tell us to just shut up and stop talking altogether. This study, combined with another recent one showing that the virus can enter the body through the eyes, gives our leaders ever more ammo with which to control us. Look for yet another study to soon prove that coronavirus easily and often penetrates our bodies through our ears and the fascist wannabes to try to convince us all to wear earmuffs, goggles and face masks. In this way, we will be rendered effectively insensate, senseless if you will.
As Mark Steyn has said, covered people are incompatible with an open society. That is, unfortunately, precisely the point.
Speak no evil, hear no evil, see no evil.
Cause no trouble.
