Take the minimum wage… one of the many issues that is destroying the South African economy. The government thinks that by telling people that they have to pay people more, that, somehow, people will make more. But in reality forcing someone to pay their workers more will not force the public to buy the goods at the higher price. The public will go elsewhere. And the business will lose money. And a business that loses money is a business that cannot hire or pay workers.
The government thinks that by waving its magic red tape it can force a company to improve this safety issue or that ‘equity’ issue. But every regulation forces a company to do something it would not have done by itself. And that thing must be inefficient… or else the company would have done it already.
This is post-modernism run amok. Fantasy humans think they can will into existence, and they speed 120 mph into the steel wall of God’s creation order. They fancy themselves the gods.
And that is assuming that the regulation actually has some form of rationality. Let’s take a local example: a local ambulance service was forced, when they did renovations, to spend an extra few tens of thousands of dollars to make sure that the ambulance station was handicapped accessible. Like… wheelchairs. In an ambulance station. A station designed to house personnel required to get up into an ambulance and drive to the scene of an accident and get down into a ditch to rescue wounded people. That’s right, personnel who could not, by definition, be handicapped!
Man was designed to multiply, replenish the Earth, and take dominion. Modern government hates this, and is doing its level best to prevent it at every level. From the prevention and denial of marriages, through the propoganda in favor of child-murder and other forms of contraception, to these much more subtle forms of denying and destroying the work of man, Modern Government shows that it hates God and His Work. And the work He calls us to do.
