Goldman Sachs, not exactly a bastion of far left airy fairy liberal
thought, says that a national mandate to wear a virus protection mask could
Increase the nation's GDP during this depression by 5% even if that
declaration only increased the number of people who actually do wear a mask
by 15%, and that amounts to a saving of about one trillion dollars. Forget
about the number of lives saved we're talking about a trillion dollars
here. That's trillion with a T.

A National Mask Mandate Could Save The U.S. Economy $1 Trillion, Goldman
Sachs Says

But unfortunately that's not going to happen because some people insist
they have a God given right to infect other people. As longtime Republican
strategist Alex Castellanos said:

*"Mask-wearing has become a totem, a secular religious symbol. Christians
wear crosses, Muslims wear a hijab, and members of the Church of Secular
Science bow to the Gods of Data by wearing a mask as their symbol,
demonstrating that they are the elite; smarter, more rational, and morally
superior to everyone else."*
