The mask is an occult symbol. It was also the symbol of Russian revolutionaries.
Under the pretext of the pandemic, are people unwittingly adopting that symbol?
Is this part of mankind's induction into the Cabalist cult? They have a record of introducing people to occult symbols under a pretext. The Baphomet hand sign
is passed off as "I love you" and the Texas Longhorns "hook em horns." The infamous sign for "OK" is the Eye of Horus and the fistbump is Freemasons touching rings.

[The Tsar's Guards] continued to be challenged --- as in primitive societies -- by the power of the mask. The mask gave an ordinary man a new identity; an anonymity that bred fear and uncertainty; a pub"image" that was grotesque, yet awesome and bigger than life. Unlike the uniforms of power that --however oppressive-- at least defined clear roles, the new revolutionary mask destroyed all links with the familiar and the predictable, all loyalty and accountability to normal human society.
The mask was part of the equipment of the professional revolutionary in Russia already in the 1860s. Hell had preached the need to disfigure one's face before assassinating an opponent...a terrorist group of 1886 called "the lancers" masked even their bombs by disguising them as dictionaries.
...After Sasha Ulyanov [Lenin's older brother, hung in 1887 at age 21] and his faction were crushed in 1887, a mask could not be worn in the great urban centers of St. Petersburg or Moscow where police controls made terrorist organization almost impossible...
By  the mask...had established links with the radical student subculture in St. Petersburg through Ulyanov's younger brother, Lenin. His Bolshevik party was deeply rooted in distinctly Russian revolutionary tradition and represented as we shall see, not so much as "a party of a new type" as the final formation of the party his brother had dreamed of.
Behind the new mask of Marxism was the old figure of a revolutionary intellectual establishing political authority through the incantation of scientism and populism and the tactics of terrorism.
Makow Comment- Billington seems to overlook that Communism was wholly Cabalist Judaism and Satanism. Nonetheless, the symbolism of the mask is useful today in the context of the Communist subversion of society. Thanks, to W for sending this tip.
