NAY to Compulsory General Masking Permanently
 

Compulsory masking for those on Mars, the Moon, and surgery rooms is arguably reasonable. Masking in China and other areas polluted with smog is another arguably reasonable safeguard. 

But a jump to permanently veiling each human from a microbe-- how can the risk-benefit balance?  So much has been lost already.  Mandated masking has already increased concussions by inducing fainting spells, decreased human visibility and communication. (Masking is especially not recommended during exertion-- including exercize.) 

I would like to know how effective  compulsion has been against the wars on drugs and corruption, as that is an arguably more important way to preserve health and wealth.
