The German city of Düsseldorf has imposed a new rule requiring citizens to wear masks when in public, or face possible hefty fines.
Many thanks to Hellequin GB for translating this article from Politikstube:
Muzzle compulsory in Düsseldorf — mask-refusers face a fine of up to €25,000
The madness knows no bounds: From today a mask is compulsory in almost the entire city of Düsseldorf. Anyone who does not “prescribe” the 0815 everyday rag, which is hardly suitable as mouth and nose protection against viruses, faces a fine of up to €25,000.
Only with drastic punishments can you take action against disobedience and demand obedience?
Do you want to make it difficult for citizens to breathe in fresh air and reduce oxygen saturation in the blood with an inhuman policy, the side effects of which seem to be secondary?
Is it actually primarily about the health of the people, or does the Corona Theater only serve to determine how far people can be obedient, and to dismantle democracy?
For the Corona-fearful rabbits with their random scraps of cloth, this punitive measure will be welcomed; for those who have woken up and for mask opponents, just another chicane and further senseless action.
In Düsseldorf, due to the high number of new Corona infections, a mask is required from Wednesday in almost the entire city area.
The city administration announced this on Tuesday evening. Exceptions apply only to non-built-up areas such as green spaces. The obligation to wear a face and nose cover applies to pedestrians and other road users who are allowed to use sidewalks. Cyclists and motorists are excluded.
The background is that the number of new infections with the coronavirus in Düsseldorf has increased massively. The seven-day incidence has exceeded the limit of 200. The value indicates the number of new infections per 100,000 inhabitants in the last seven days, and is the most important indicator for the spread of the virus.
Anyone who violates the new mask requirement in Düsseldorf can be fined up to 25,000 euros. This is based on the general decree that the North Rhine-Westphalian state capital published on Tuesday evening. With reference to the Infection Protection Act, the order states that the willful or negligent omission of a mouth and nose cover “can be punished with a fine of up to twenty-five thousand euros”.
In NRW it has thus far cost €150 if, for example, you do not wear a mouth and nose cover on the bus.
Afterword from the translator:
And here we can see the absolute greed of a political creed of viral parasites that will do anything to stay in Corona-enriching power.
And let’s not forget that the rubble of all those private homes whose banks foreclosed their mortgages, and those businesses that filed for bankruptcy, can be snatched up for a song and a victory dance by the Elites.
The world is being turned back in time, to the Feudal Times, where the Elites rule with an iron fist and we, the peasants, are robbed not only of our livelihoods, but also our dignity, since they want ALL of it.
My favourite Scottish Philosopher David Hume stated back in the 18th century:
“It is seldom, that liberty of any kind is lost all at once. Slavery has so frightful an aspect to men accustomed to freedom, that it must steal upon them by degrees, and must disguise itself in a thousand shapes, in order to be received.”
But I’ll finish with a quote from Niccolo Machiavelli, who said:
“It is better to act and repent than not to act and regret.”
