TO THE EDITOR:
While in truth, what Molly is suggesting is well-intentioned, it does not take account for the very human tendencies that she purports to being the causes of the issues.
She is correct in saying that humans are not rational. However, to assume that policies will fix this problem is something that has had harsh and negative consequences for our nation in the past; for example, the Prohibition and Sedition Acts of Woodrow Wilson.
Molly’s assertion that “fairness” would be controlled by the media is simply ridiculous, as the point of a law is not to encourage decisions but to compel or force actions. There is no way to police the expression of ideas without ceding individual rights to the government in exchange for government-compelled “fair and balanced” narratives.
