France is having a national debate on whether to outlaw concealing one's face in public.
Interesting. I'll bet the only thing making it a debate is religious reasons.
While I may feel uncomfortable if somebody were to hide their face in public (I don't think I've met anybody, not since us kids in the hardest winters of my childhood), I don't believe it's right to outlaw it. Why not also outlawing curtains? After all, it would be much harder to manufacture bombs if everybody can look into your home 24/7, you can't argue against that.
Update: so far as I know, the reason for the suggested law is violent demonstrators who wear ski masks so the police can't identify them. If there was such a law, they can arrest them merely for wearing the masks.
