A license represents a freedom that the government takes away from you then sells back to you to fund their activities and justify their existence. What has occurred over the years is not that the constitution has changed, but that unchallenged legislation has changed. Boiling frogs that we are, we have generally acquiesced to whatever we have been told to do because we are accustomed to believing that the government is always right.
(1) Are you absolutely certain that your Government / Media / Religion has always been totally honest with you?
(2) If your answer is ‘NO’, then can you be certain of what exactly, they have been truthful about, or what they have been untruthful about?
(3) If your answer to both of these questions is ‘NO’, then why would you ever accept anything more, that they ever claim?
