Another example of how Governments are bad news.
Governments' solutions tend to reduce freedom, cost a lot, and make things worse - all under the guise of making things safer, cheaper, etc.
The Libertarians are on the right track.
The sad truth is that Government gets to create all the mess because most voters encourage it, through intolerance (insisting that others live the way you think they should), adversarial attitudes with respect to others (demanding equality - i.e., theft), lack of understanding (e.g., thinking a high minimum wage makes things better), intellectual arrogance (not appreciating how little you know), etc.
