Masks hinder society, not help

Is COVID dangerous?  (Look at CDC death and hospitalization rates which are extremely low). No, and the numbers are only waning. 

Even if COVID were dangerous enough, are masks effective? Based on data I think we can answer that they may have minor efficacy at stopping droplets, but not much. And that assumed ideal conditions (people wearing them properly, high quality fibers, etc), which rarely happens. 

Even if COVID we're dangerous enough and masks were effective, are the risks of mask wearing worth the purported benefits? Potential minor benefit to keep people well vs. psychological detriment, not seeing faces, breathing in CO2 for 8 hour shifts. 

Please get rid of masks for the good of society.
