Big surprise this.
What on earth were people expecting with the vagaries of the RIP Act and a heavier reliance on legislation to resolve the pettiest of problems?
C.S. Lewis said -
"Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience."
This is never more true than here in these woesome tales.
