Do we really want our government to “look after” us with more new laws and regulations? Do we want our legislators busy passing new ordinances, regulations and laws to protect us? After all, isn’t it their job at the legislative council? That is why they are called legislators.
Hong Kong is catching up with other “developed” countries with more and more and more laws always in the name of protecting the public and in the process strangle the dynamic quality that made Hong Kong successful and prosperous in the past.
If we are truly educated, we can look after ourselves with smaller government.
Remember what Sir William Blackstone, the 17th century writer of Law of England, once said, “The more law, the less justice.”
