Have you noticed that whenever something goes wrong in life, statists call for more government regulations? How come they never seem to notice that their beloved regulated economy failed to prevent the thing that went wrong? No matter how highly regulated the activity, in the mind of the statist the fact that something went wrong doesn’t connote the failure of the regulated society but rather the fact that there is still too much freedom in society. Just enact some new regulations and then continue to do that every time something goes wrong and everything will be fine. Of course, total government control of economic activity lies at the end of that road.
