Thomas L. Knapp at The Center for a Stateless Society - Mr. Knapp implores the frogs to jump out of the pot, before it boils us alive. With a Prodhoun quote that I'll post separately.

Thirty years ago, we'd have laughed at the suggestion that government-issued ID and entry in a government database might one day be required to purchase "over-the-counter medicines" like pseudoephedrine.

Only a little more than a hundred years ago, morphine was an "over-the-counter" medicine.

Two hundred years ago, the idea of requiring doctors to be licensed by the state was unheard of and would have been rejected as alien to basic American principles of government.
