What if, from the day we were born, the doctors put an oxygen mask on us. We were babies, we never knew anything and we grew up living on air from a tank, like those for scuba divers.
Everyone uses them. Apparently the air in the world has become too polluted for humans, that's what the history lesson teaches us, and we all need air tanks for our oxygen supply.
So we all live our lives using air from a tank and we have to buy these tanks from an organization which supplies these air tanks. And it's been going on for a few hundred years. Many generations of people all buying air from a company... It's not expensive. But it's not cheap either.
One day, you see someone walking around without an air tank...
What do you think?
Remember. This has been going on for many generations. You have been brought up being told that the air is too polluted to be wandering around without an air tank, and you need an air tank to stay safe and healthy.
You won't die immediately, but it's recommend to be breathing clean air from a tank. You never know what the polluted air will do to you years from now.
1 week later, you see this guy again without an air tank...
1 month later you continue to see him. Alive and healthy...
You approach him and talk to him.
He tells you that the air is absolutely safe. He's done this for the past 5 years and had no side effects.
He says, all you have to do is just to take off the air mask.
Apparently it's a government conspiracy and a money spinning scam by big companies. No one really needs to pay for air.
What do you do?
Remember, this has been practiced for hundreds of years. No one currently alive has lived during the era when air was clean.
Some of you may answer quickly that you will just take off the mask.
Are you sure?
It's easy to answer now, cos we've never lived a whole life where we need to breathe through an air tank. Will you answer so quickly when you have lived your whole life wearing an air mask? When you see all your friends and family still wearing the mask? When your grandparents tell you that the air is polluted and not fit for human inhalation.
Will you really just take off the mask?
So I ask again...
Do you eat food past the best before date?
Do you throw them away?
Do you still pay money for vegetables?
Do you drink bottled water? I know people who regularly buy bottled water for daily consumption...
Do you buy a wedding ring worth 2x your monthly salary?
Do you still do things that someone else told you that it's normal to do, but someone else has done it differently without any issues?
Are you sure you will still remove that oxygen mask?
