Reasons to Wear (or Not) a Face Mask?

The other day, I was presented with a YouTube vlog titled: REASONS TO NOT WEAR A FACE MASK.1 At risk of adding to brittlestar's million plus views and spoiling his kamikaze ending, I list his concluding reasons why one would NOT wear a face mask:
● Science-itis
● Acute Wussness
● Selfish Syndrome
● Chronic Dickishness
● Pathological Ignorance
● Severe Moron-ness
His presentation struck me as a classic, unconscious self-exposure, or possibly the mote / beam scenario (which afflicts us all).2

The pro and con face-mask question has become so contentious — with the vast majority of brittlestar's thumbs-up being in support of mask wearing, ostensibly to protect others. In my view, the debate distills beyond the appearance of things to the hidden things of ages past and present — to the déjà vu voices of warning.
24 Wherefore, the Lord commandeth you, when ye shall see these things [“secret combinations, to get power and gain”] come among you that ye shall awake to a sense of your awful situation, because of this secret combination which shall be among you; or wo be unto it, because of the blood of them who have been slain; for they cry from the dust for vengeance upon it, and also upon those who built it up.
25 For it cometh to pass that whoso buildeth it up seeketh to overthrow the freedom of all lands, nations, and countries; and it bringeth to pass the destruction of all people, for it is built up by the devil, who is the father of all lies; even that same liar who beguiled our first parents,3
What more perfect scenario could be imagined to amass global power and gain than this COVID crisis and the incremental, “essential” concessions required of ALL to save mankind? And what more blatant violation of
that law of the land which is constitutional, supporting that principle of freedom in maintaining rights and privileges, belongs to all mankind, and is justifiable before me [the Lord]. ... And as pertaining to law of man, whatsoever is more or less than this [“the constitutional law of the land”], cometh of evil4?
Footnote 6
So here is my response to brittlestar and to those who wish to compel mask wearing or to shame non-maskers in this age of “lying wonders” and masquerading.
Ten REASONS (amongst others) TO WEAR a face mask?
1) because you are one of Stanley Milgram's 65% who reflexively trusts / obeys authority figures wearing labcoats? (virtual or not) (or masks?) (Science-itis?)
2) because you refuse to see or are afraid to question / challenge the inconsistent or contradictory narratives of the “authorities”? (Wussness?)
3) because NON-conformity to authoritarian demands makes some people angry? abusive? domineering? afraid? (“stay the hell away from me”) (Selfi Syndrome?) AND you have enough stress without offending the angry, abusive, domineering, afraid?
4) because you are in denial or ignorance of the science and history of power — its pursuit and abuse throughout the ages and its commitment to never let a crisis (or “cover-up”) go to waste?
5) because you have passively drunk the Kool-aid of the ageless Domination System? i.e., “Whatever WE-the-Powers demand that you do is right.” (Chronic servitude? Brown-shirt Syndrome?)
6) because you insist that one more notch (It's just a mask!!5) in the (tightening) belt of tyranny does not matter because of all the other “innocuous” notches we have passively accepted over the years?
7) because you discount or disparage the claims and evidence of whistle-blowers & witnesses who have everything to lose when exposing or challenging the Powers?
8) because you think that the fear of death or any COVID death (vis-à-vis collateral deaths and destructions) justifies whatever it takes to legislate “greater safety” and herd obedience?
9) because you haven't read many of the mask-box or fabric-mask disclaimers?
10) because you think and feel YOU should mask-up and freely choose to?
1. REASONS TO NOT WEAR A FACE MASK [Bold emphasis added.] (Brittlestar | July 10, 2020 | Time 1:30 min) at
2. New Testament | JST Matthew 7: 7: 4-5 ~ Why is it that thou beholdest the mote that is in thy brother’s eye, but considerest not the beam that is in thine own eye? Or how wilt thou say to thy brother, Let me pull out the mote out of thine eye; and canst not behold a beam is in thine own eye?
3. Book of Mormon | Ether 8:24-25 (Bold emphasis added.)
4. Doctrine and Covenants | Section 98:4-9 ~ And now, verily I say unto you concerning the laws of the land, it is my will that my people should observe to do all things whatsoever I command them. And that law of the land which is constitutional, supporting that principle of freedom in maintaining rights and privileges, belongs to all mankind, and is justifiable before me. Therefore, I, the Lord, justify you, and your brethren of my church, in befriending that law which is the constitutional law of the land; And as pertaining to law of man, whatsoever is more or less than this, cometh of evil. I, the Lord God, make you free, therefore ye are free indeed; and the law also maketh you free. Nevertheless, when the wicked rule the people mourn.
