Yes but to follow that analogy and again show things are usually near
black or white, in the US the Government on behalf of consumers
forced car manufacturers to install seat belts starting back in the
'60's. It then took a decade or more to convince consumers to wear
them. But they
evolved and no doubt many people are alive today that wouldn't be
otherwise. Each side has to move away from the extreme position that it
is all the other viewpoints fault!
Really? Then why did the government mandate passive systems such
as the "motorized" seatbelts of the early 90s prior to driver
side and then passenger side air bags? Could it have been because
voluntary use of seatbelts wasn't sufficiently high?
And your point was what?
