You can in principle, but what is the benefit?

In simple words, if you encrypt everything that comes out of your
computer then normally only the persons (or computers) with whom you
somehow exchanged the keys will be able to decrypt it. This means that
your connectivity will be limited.

If you want to protect from a local sniffing attack than you could for
instance establish an encrypted tunnel to a trusted computer on a
trusted network and route all network traffic trough this tunnel. The
computer on the trusted network would serve as a router in this case.
