You want to inspire them, pay them more instead of offshoring their future after they reach 40.
or more likely a third slap
The problem is that, just like DNA, the police get lazy and simply round up everyone who matches. Those people can then eliminate themselves from the investigation by providing an alibi. Being arrested tends to look bad though, especially if you are arrested for something particularly nasty. The cops don't give a shit though, they just want an easy life and higher solved rate.
What does it feel like when you look over to the next stall and realise the guy's dick is a few millimetres longer than yours?
Here's to you, Mrs. Robinson!
But predicting the future path of evolution is like predicting the stock market. You can't plan around the schedule of mutations. Who knows if these plastic munching traits are a freak mutation caused by a single cosmic ray from Orion or something that has a predictable time-line.
What happens if this bacteria grows really good at it and starts munching away at everyday items on land?
You're at an interview or on a date and your polyester pants unexpectedly succumb to the hungry little buggers.
there also needs to be room for personal choice because free individuals need the room to make free choices, and that includes the contracts they enter into.
The problem is they are not free individuals, they are pressured by commercial demands for profit.
the business point of view is that as a business owner i want to maximize profit.

In some countries a gov't agency can sue a newspaper for slander. In this case, if The Star could have reasonably known about and mentioned the exemption possibility but failed to, one could have a good case against them in such countries.
However, certain news sources I've seen (that rhyme with "box") will include the obvious or easy-to-find counter arguments, but near the bottom in convoluted or sloppy language. Such a court case would then be over wording and placement, which would fill the courts with squabbling over gray areas.

Only cowards use censorship.
You are looking at just wealth and wages. In terms of the variation between the quality of abode, the standard of healthcare and the life expectancy of the poorest and the richest things have been improving. Thatcher and Regan did a lot of damage but the baseline is still way above where it was 100 years ago.
The problem with PC games is the horrible, horrible DRM. At least with a console's DRM you know what you are getting and it doesn't break the machine. With PC game DRM often you get a rootkit and sometimes your machine doesn't boot after installation. They force you to join some stupid "rockstar social club" and won't let you play if you have DVD duplication software installed.
Promptness is its own reward, if one lives by the clock instead of the sword.
