These zoning laws are absurd. In some communities around here, we have people objecting and calling for local government action because they don't like the color of their neighbor's house. Ridiculous.

"As soon as A observes something which seems to him to be wrong, from which X is suffering, A talks it over with B, and A and B then propose to get a law passed to remedy the evil and help X. Their law always proposes to determine....what A, B and C shall do for X." But what about C? There was nothing wrong with A and B helping X. What was wrong was the law, and the indenturing of C to the cause. C was the forgotten man, the man who paid, "the man who never is thought of." "He is the victim of the reformer, social speculator and philanthropist..." - William Graham Sumner as adapted by Amity Shlaes in her book, The Forgotten Man.
