Reynold’s First Law:
Subsidizing the markers of status doesn’t produce the character traits that result in that status; it undermines them.
Reynold’s Second Law:
The more a government wants to run its citizens’ lives, the worse job it will do at the most basic tasks of government.
Reynold’s Third Law:
Whatever politicians control, they will use against you to get what they want.
Can’t say I disagree with any of ’em.
