I think it is the knee jerk reaction of all. We see something we don’t like and we want to collectively put a stop to it. That is how government grows.
I saw today tweets on about SF story on a Hustler mobile stripper van being parked in some neighborhood. Few would like that next to their house and of course the reaction is more government. But that is how government gets bigger and bigger and bigger and how we get more and more and more laws on minute issues.
Thanks, the “Hustler Mobile Stripper” van story is a prefect analogy.
If people choose to ignore it, it would go away. Instead, complaints about the van only gave Larry Flynt a level of publicity that all of his slimy money could have never bought.
In fact, if I were a gambler, I might bet Flynt orchestrated the “complaints” simply for attention.
