why you trolling, man?

You are trolling, right? What with the Mises quote in your signature and all.

Anyways, don't drag out that child labor fallacy again. You know that the Fair Labors Standards Act, outlawing child labor, wasn't passed till 1938, and then only to limit labor competition? And only after child labor stopped being a societal issue?

As a general rule, government social reform is always playing catch-up with societal reform, and then takes the credit. The social reform law is passed after it is no longer needed, because society has evolved. But the history books are written so that the government appears as the savior that made the change possible.
