Via @normative, “I believe that Donald Trump was talking, tonight, and that he, in fact, held an entire press conference. But it was impossible to hear him over Chris Christie’s eyes.”
“Chris Christie spent the entire speech screaming wordlessly. I have never seen someone scream so loudly without using his mouth before. It would have been remarkable if it had not been so terrifying.”
Tyler Cowen on Trump and the regulatory state: “If you own a large company, it is virtually impossible to be in accordance with all of the regulations all of the time.”
This is the regulation tipping point. It means further regulations are unnecessary to regulate. In this environment, the mere threat of selective enforcement is enough to get any company to do any thing that won’t be immediately ruinous to shareholders without any further law needed to compel them. New regulation is mere signaling. Bureaucrats can offer incumbents protection, enemies punishment, and can advance their extra-legal social agendas (Operation Choke Point) all with a mere letter to the appropriate person at any company at any time for any reason.
Also, ask the gun dealers who lost their bank accounts if the regulatory state could prove dangerous to liberty.
