Routinely encrypting *all* communications would transform the "chore"
into an habitual routine that requires little-to-no intellectual
effort in respect of each individual message sent or file stored. The
value of the encryption would then greatly exceed the effort.
In a surprisingly short time, the "burden" of which you speak would
become barely noticeable.
