Saving citizens from themselves
A nanny state with government health care has a vested interested in protecting its citizens from the physical injuries that can happen in ordinary life. Denmark has a plan to require people on the street to wear helmets. Mind you, that plan is not aimed at bicyclists or motorcyclists on the street. It’s just aimed at ordinary people, walking around.
If that Danish helmet plan works at reducing pedestrian cranial injuries, and if we get Obama Care, I promise you that these are soon going to become mandatory street wear in America.
