Over at the Acton Institute blog, Hunter Baker
provides a very short but very clear example of what can go wrong when
well lobbied regulators use the power of government to
milk consumers. Why, exactly, are people inclined to trust bureaucrats and lobbyists over the judgment of citizens? And what does it mean to be a citizen (or, even, just an adult) in a country that finds it necessary to forbid you from replacing a scratched lens on a pair of glasses that are working perfectly well for you? Amazing.
