It is my hypothesis that the behaviour we are seeing in governments, federal and local, statewide, provincially, and nationally is in the main a result of widespread and unbelievably high levels of bribes, as testified to by the President of Belarus (see first comment for link). And if the bribe amount is not considered sufficient, one suspects the emolument rises, sometimes suddenly as it seems to have happened in Wisconsin where a once mask-less state suddenly became convinced it, at the Governor level, needed masks. One wonder how much it took to make it convincing? What did it cost to raise the ante, Governor? https://www.globalresearch.ca/mandated-public-masking-wisconsin-usa/5723724
