"Licensing is set up to protect the public IF THEY WANT TO BE PROTECTED. You have the option of doing all those things informally in your home if you want to, and it's legal in NH."
No it isn't; it's simply not enforced when it's done in the privacy of your own home. That's like saying it's legal to carry around baggies of cocaine in the privacy of your own home. Just because the police aren't there arresting you doesn't mean it's any less illegal. Licensing can be done by the private sector if it so chooses. That then gives people the option to go to licensed folks if they make the decision to do so. The only place the state should get involved is in cases where people are fraudulently claiming to be licensed when they, in fact, are not.
