The constant thrust of the left is to pursue the chimera of the risk-free society. From seatbelts, to helmets, to laws mandating concussion policies at youth sports to voluminous regulations on lifesaving drugs, the illusion of safety is an obsession of the nanny-state.
This is why the quote articulating why this is so misguided is worth sharing:
We should be able to understand that the world isn’t risk free, can never be made risk free and that regulations which trick people into thinking it is risk free serve only to make it more dangerous. – Dylan Grice of the French Bank Societe General
