The growth of government is fueled by this mentality. We need pure food and drugs, we need clean water and air. Our workplaces must be safe. Our forests must be protected. And on and on and on.
And THAT is what this article is ALL about! Expanding the government and LIMITING family owned farms and removing teenagers from farm work.
If you removed ALL family farms and teenagers from farming, you would see your food prices SKY-ROCKET! Because, once the "family" aspect is out of the business, the government will begin mandating and subjugating farms work rules to the point of massive cost increases!
JUST SAY NO! No, to government mandates! I grew up working on farms and in the 1970's silos were known as death traps - stay clear unless you got a reason to be in/near it and then only for a specific task - PERIOD! I would be willing to bet that there are more "office" related deaths than 26 farm deaths, but they have already squeezed as much out of office-safety as they can cost-effectively squeeze!

Well said. People want safety guaranteed, and it is impossible to do so. To expect government to do so means huge bureaucracies, costs and other overhead leading to inefficiency.
And people still die and are hurt.
Liberals want to legislate common sense, and it cannot be done.

(1793 French Jacobins and 2012 American Liberals have a lot in common.)
