More Cans And Can’ts

Certain truths appear to be particularly difficult for people to accept. One such truth is on my mind this morning: Laws cannot change people’s desires.      Laws, coupled with sufficiently determined enforcement, can change the incentives and disincentives people face, but nothing else.
