History always repeats itself. Legislation which is pushed to the public as being “for the public good” always, always aims to strengthen the capitalist oligopolies. They use a recent scare in order to drum up support. So it is with the Chinese toy problem and the new Orwellianly-named “Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act,” which primarily aims to shut down small toy manufacturers by imposing enormous fees for “mandatory testing.” The Handmade Toy Alliance is fighting this, but of course their solution is more legislation. As usual, no one realizes the insanity of the system they live under.
