In response to the article expressing complaints about Legislators
actions in regards to ATV legislation, I find it completely amazing
that any thinking adult is foolish enough to DEMAND to be told what to
do by increasing the burden of law.
One would suppose that the
manufacturers have ample warnings on their products in regards to
safety issues, and that anyone intelligent enough to own and operate an
ATV would also have the intelligence to be able to read those warnings
and understand what they mean.
It would follow that the person in
question would therefore have the ability to make decisions as to what
is the best and most appropriate way to use their ATV.
Why does the
legislature have to be involved at all? I find that the over abundance
of "junk" laws in our society is insulting to the collective
intelligence of the human race.
And I am appalled that so many actually
insist on their lives and minds being regulated as if we were too
unintelligent to think for ourselves.
Is the human race really so
foolish that the majority cannot make any rational decisions about
their safety and how they live their private lives without constant
If a person were to get hold of a comprehensive list of
existing "laws", and really think about it, you would be flabbergasted
at how many of them nearly everyone breaks every day of their lives in
some way or another.
Perhaps the answer is that we are all simply
criminals with childlike minds.
I do not have such a defeatest attitude, however, but rather feel that
the majority DO have the intelligence, values, and understanding of
right and wrong to be able to function well in this world without the
ever present "big brother" to legislate every move they make.
