Max Borders discusses his essay on the "regulatory state" from the book New Threats to Freedom. Why can't we buy things like delicious BBQ sauce straight from Mom & Pop vendors at the farmers' market? Do we really need government agencies shutting down cornerside lemonade stands that lack the proper business licenses? How can we balance business interests with public safety? Why are we so quick to call for government bans, regulations, and controls? Why, as farmer-activist Joel Salatin puts it, is it that "Everything I Want to do is Illegal"?
