The law of unintended consequences

There is one law that legislatures can never repeal. That is the Law of Unintended Consequences. When legislators rush into something that sounds good without carefully considering possible consequences, that is when they are apt to write a law that does more harm than good.

If you think the legislature should pass some proposal, try to imagine what might be the unintended consequences. If you can’t think of any, try harder.
