Those on “the right” agree that unintended consequences are a real problem. The left pats itself on the back because of their intentions, but when their schemes fail – their nowhere to be found. Bernie Sanders won’t comment on the hell that is socialist Venezuela.
The problem is made real when government mandates that people who drive under the influence of alcohol, drive under the influence of an ignition interlock device. These devices make drivers more distracted, and have cost the lives of many. Mandating that drivers who are impaired DRIVE IMPAIRED hardly seems to make sense. Government at its finest.
This brings us to a different reality. Is it possible that American interventionism has had unintended consequences? Perhaps they were not unintended. As the Cold War ended, the military industrial complex needed a new enemy – “terrorism”.
