Indeed, as I noted in my own piece, entitled, "Masks and Me: How Did We Get Here?", (https://libertarianinstitute.org/articles/masks-and-me-how-did-we-get-here/ ) history has not been kind to the cult of mask. No doubt, people will recognize some of the pictures in that piece, dating back to 1918! Simply put, if masking "worked" there should be a plethora of published data, including RCTs, showing it. Instead, all we have are half-assed proxy tests and the (all-too-common) poorly-designed pseudo-experiments, A.K.A., propaganda pieces, from the CDC.
