Government Knows Best

by T Bone    Dec 19, 2013, 1:22 PM

The mentality behind this legislation is that government knows best....sure, the technology already exists for those who want it, Apple, Android, Blackberry and Windows Phone can all already do this, and it's optional, and the carriers have no control over it. And the process is reversible if the phone should be recovered. Can't you see how terrible that is? A feature being optional? Carriers having no control? The process being easy to reverse? Clearly this is a situation up with which we cannot put!

Government knows best, even when they are completely ignorant of the technology they are trying to regulate and are not willing to consider the ramifications and possible very harmful side effects of the legislation that they propose, they still know best. Just stop thinking for yourself and start blindly following and worshiping the government and everything will be fine forever and ever.

Or at least that's what those in government keep telling me.....
