The mob wants to live your life for you

Our country is transforming itself into the Twentieth Century Motor Company, according to a chilling new op-ed by Peter Schwartz, "Mob Rule Comes to Washington", issued today by the Ayn Rand Center for Indivdual Rights:
Of course, once the mob-rule mentality takes hold, everyone becomes a potential target. If you obtain a mortgage or a college loan, the government may subject you too to “risk regulation.” You may be told that you can’t buy a plasma TV or take a vacation or quit your job, because the risk to your finances is “unacceptable.” But isn’t that a purely private decision?--you will indignantly demand. If government power keeps expanding, however, there may no longer be any private decisions.
