The number of illegal activities in the average Western democracy has long since become incalculable, but it is a rare day that passes without fresh prohibitions being demanded by ardent pressure groups and grandstanding politicians.It's precisely this phenomenon which I find uniquely abhorrent in the 21st century, and which eventually prompted the setting up of this blog a few years ago. I expect the book is going to tell me that it's not merely a modern anti-social problem, after all.
