I saw an elevator sign that read, ‘Utah elevator permit stored in blah blah location’. I detest the idea that things without government permits aren’t safe.
Down with big government, up with free market innovation; if you need a permit, it’s not free market. The more barriers to entry you place against business owners, the less incentive they have to create business.
We don’t need big brother always telling us what to do. If someone chooses to have bad elevators, it will be known ‘don’t go to that place’ and their business will suffer. We don’t need government to tell us how to act in the best interest of our customers.
After all, we sort of like our customers, and want them to like us.
