its a problem with ANY group or individual that want to decide what's "best for you."
what's best for you never seems to be very good for them.
This includes government "groups". I worked for a large multinational with engineering sites in many countries, including over 400 engineere in Germany.
After a large round of layoffs about 10 years ago, the German office was proud to have laid off nobody, bragging about it, and being in accordance with German laws making it tough.
So they went to the German office and government and said, You can either lose 100 jobs, or 400. The choice is yours."
The government caved.
