Around the world, black-and-white stickers have been popping up on lampposts and bus stops. “The Nazis had a phrase that covered all abuses of the state: It’s for your safety,” one says in blocky black letters. “People in 1940s Germany didn’t realize they’d been brainwashed by the media and government either,” screams another in all-caps. Other stickers imply that masks are un-masculine; they refer to vaccines as a government experiment or say that belief in COVID is a cult.
