When a slave was fitted with a mask, it was locked in place. The slave could not reat or drink until the enslaver took the mask off him. This kept the slave from fleeing because he would be unable to nourish himself during his attempted flight.
Where the slave was limited to where he could go with the mask, today, persons under mask mandates are limited to where they can go without a mask. In both cases, a person’s liberty is infringed by the mask.

Can we consider the perverted delight that the sight of these mask wearers brings to the schemers of these policies?
