Do you think the city will reverse its ban? That isn’t likely. Once you lose liberty, it is very unlikely that you will ever reclaim it. After all, the bag ban still appeals to environmental extremists, who will squall like hammered cats if anyone attempts to repeal the ordinance. That just would not sit well with the illiberal control freaks.
After all, what’s so bad about a silly little bag ban? It’s just a minor inconvenience, and we can all feel good about how well we project the illusion of green-hood. Except, well, an entire industry (along with its jobs) is likely to disappear. Our liberty cannot withstand death by a thousand cuts. Today, it’s a minor inconvenience, eventually it’s oppression. And more’s the pity when it’s based on a fraud.
