This bears repeating until people wake up:
” We are reaching, or have reached the point, where it is literally impossible for any person not to break some law. The law of the land now makes every single person a criminal, usually multiple times per day.”
In some industries, you can be fined, prevented from participation in that industry, or prohibited for engaging in certain segment of that industry simply based upon the OPINION of a federal regulator, a State Regulator, or an industry association regulator. If they “don’t like it”, you get sanctioned under the most relevant rule they can find and if you want to fight it, that will cost more money than you could earn in years of that business. You still have the record of the investigation and potential sanction out there for all the world to see while the process drags on, eating away your livelihood and reputation.
When everything becomes forbidden, nothing will be actually illegal, but we will all be eligible for prison or personal ruin at the whim of an agency employee. What a wonderful world it is...
