It is pleasing to announce that Francis Berger has resumed blogging; since I find his blog one of the most stimulating on the web. That it, I often find that his posts spark ideas and clarifications.
So, if you don't already know his work - why not take a look?
His current post is a very insightful piece on one of the most sinister aspects of this year of triumphant evil: I mean the global imposition of mandatory masking, or more accurately - compelling people to cover the lower half of their faces.
Masking has inimically inverted the very sight of an unmasked face in public. Rather than perceiving the life of a soul in the human face, many now regard the sight of the mask-less human face with trepidation and terror.
The unmasked face is now viewed as source of potential harm and danger. Many go out of their way to avoid encountering it all costs, and in situations where they are forced to confront it, they react to it with fear and scorn.
Nowhere is this more true than within the walls of Christian churches, where the very act of mandating face masking during services borders on outright blasphemy.
