"When everyone's a criminal, we're all safe from Bad Guys!"
So sayeth Tom the Dancing Bug.
Remember. though. When progressives complain about crony capitalism, rent seeking, and other unholy unions of government and corporations, they think that the problem is that the government just doesn't have enough power to keep those dang companies in check.
At a company I used to work for, their unofficial development motto was, "If brute force isn't working, then you're not using enough." It occurs to me that this is a pretty good summary of the progressive philosophy as well.
