A vast majority of U.S. states have lifted all COVID-19 restrictions and are fully reopened. California, Connecticut, Delaware, Hawaii, Kansas, Michigan, New Mexico, Oregon, Rhode Island and Washington are the last ten states holding on to mask mandates and social gathering limits, according to AARP. But the damage is already done.
A Federal Reserve report found that there were at least 150,000 extra business closures above and beyond the norm in 2020 and the first quarter of 2021. Personal services companies (barbershops, nail salons, etc.), sole proprietorships and gyms were the hardest hit. Individual cities are also struggling to regain economic momentum.
Las Vegas, for instance, relies heavily on tourism. Hotels are still at only 50% capacity on weekdays despite Clark County, Nevada fully reopening this month. The city ultimately needs conventions and related events to pick back up and revitalize. Economic and psychological recovery are progressing across the country. Unfortunately it may all come to a screeching halt again.
The World Health Organization (WHO) issued updated guidance last week, urging fully vaccinated people to continue wearing masks. The WHO cites the COVID-19 “delta variant” as the reason for its mask recommendations. An Ipsos poll published today found that 72% of Americans are somewhat or very concerned about the COVID-19 delta variant. Some U.S. states and countries around the world are reimposing COVID mandates. But many Americans are fed up with it all.
Kevin Sorbo tweets
Some know actor Kevin Sorbo as Hercules in the 1990s television series Hercules: The Legendary Journeys. He also starred in the television series Andromeda. But Sorbo made headlines earlier this month for this comments posted on Twitter.
His June 2 tweet makes reference to how lockdowns, mask mandates and other COVID-19 restrictions would not exist in a “society of strong men.” Sorbo concluded his tweet with, “that’s why they attacked masculinity first.”
Sorbo also made clear a couple weeks later that he will not be rolling up his sleeve for COVID-19 vaccines.
His claims have merit.
Masculinity and personal choices
Testosterone levels in adolescent and young American men have steadily declined every year since 1999, according to the American Urology Association. A 2007 study published in the Journal of Endocrinology and Metabolism measured testosterone drops to be about 1% every year since the 1980s. Diabetes, aging populations and obesity are cited as the primary culprits in this phenomenon. Soy is a common food additive and is known to lower testosterone levels. Hollywood and government are also a major problems.
The BET Awards last night featured several men in dresses kissing each other. President Joe Biden appointed a man named Rachel Levine to the position of Assistant Secretary of Health. Levine identifies as a “transgendered woman.” Senator Rand Paul, R-Kentucky, asked Levine about hormone blocker drugs that are freely and openly prescribed to prepubescent children who say they are the opposite sex. Levine regurgitated several talking points related to this subject matter. Paul was labeled “transphobic” for asking the questions.
Sorbo also made his point about choosing not to receive a COVID-19 vaccine. Many professional athletes, including Buffalo Bills wide receiver Cole Beasley, NBA superstar Lebron James, and tennis great Novak Djokovic have all either flat-out said no to the vaccines or refuse to divulge their personal choice. Most of society is being forced into vaccination either for employment or by social coercion. Sorbo, like all men living in their alpha brain wavelength, made clear he has free will and makes decisions for himself.
IMS and vaccines
Mr. Sorbo is considered brave by some, sensible by others, and an “anti-vaxxer” by the rest. Men think for themselves and fight for what they believe. Dr. Martin Luther King once said if a man has not discovered something he would die for, he isn’t fit to live. A man becomes a slave when his free-will, masculinity and Internal Monologue System (IMS) are all usurped by external forces.
Sorbo is a Christian, a man of faith. He listens to God first and his IMS second. His decisions and his positions are between himself and God. Another man may differ in his positions. But a man is living in his alpha frequency when he makes decisions based on his own internal dialogue, and is not influenced by outside human forces.
