On September 1, 2020, for lack of the required number of votes, Mt. Pleasant Town Council was unable to extend the Emergency Ordinance Requiring Face Coverings in Certain Circumstances. Almost immediately, unhappy town residents started a petition to reinstate this mandate. This petition is to counter the loud voices who "believe" that masks provide some kind of overwhelming benefit to the health of our society. 

The justification for face coverings has not been established to any degree necessary that we would require of any other law, though proponents often point to seat belts as a parallel rule. Laws such as those are backed with directed, government sanctioned, unbiased studies and extensive formal public debate. After six months of enduring expansive and intrusive measures to address the virus, there has been time for investigation and proper public debate, but justification for these disconnected actions is still lacking. We are hardly any better informed about viral spread than we were on day one. We are simply told to "Mask harder!"

No discussion is allowed for the effects of these draconian actions, though there is much better documentation of the deleterious consequences of what we have allowed to be done to us: locking down our economy creating massive unemployment, inserting unnatural social barriers between people creating fear and unease, interfering with the education and social development of our children which will take years to remedy, and the untold rise in depression, mental anxiety, and suicide, child abuse, domestic violence, substance abuse and drug overdoses, financial ruin, and general unrest. 

Mandating masks without proper justification is just one aspect of the massive government overreach being allowed to take place. It is making us voiceless, fearful, and subservient. Failure to considerate the effects of unjustified policies is unacceptable in a free society. We've had enough of the mindless mask mandates that serve no proven purpose, but do serve to keep us muzzled and afraid in our own community. No more.
