What's notably interesting about this Euro proposal is the fact that, while on the surface it appears reasonable, it reflects the same failed intellect that infects so much government action across the political spectrum. And while this proposal demands complex analysis, which on so many levels would expose the sad paternalist agenda who's intent it is to crush individualism, seen by these statist elitists as some sort of dysfunctional personality trait, I would point out one item only. The % of cages to MCs would not show up on a statistical graph! But, by singling out a perceived and relatively powerless minority, the motorcyclist, while ignoring the wholesale license giveaway to an incompetent majority, the cagers, which they preside over, they can create the illusion that government is taking reasoned, aggressive action to do something about the massive death and injury statistics on our roads worldwide. Cynically, they are only too happy to collect huge revenues from these folks for the privilege of driving and can avoid offending them as they depend on them for their continued incumbency or appointment to office. An excellent parallel is the restriction to practical extinction of private firearms ownership in Euroland, by abusing the millions who will voluntarilly obey the law, while the criminal element laughingly ignores it. Can any of us imagine the ferocious anger, resistance, and economic chaos that would greet the announcement that ALL drivers would be required to comply with a similar training mandate? So long as we tolerate our conversion into an homogenized and emasulcated society of sheep by empowering a government structure that proposes irrational solutions such as this, we'll continue to have unfortunate and useless discourses such as this.
