It's as if we are legislating out all chances at disruptive technology coming along. Or am I missing some perspective?

Every industry and trade union, going back to Adam Smith, has wanted legislative changes to guarantee their place and profits. Or has attempted to do so by means of avoiding competition in the marketplace, whether legal or not.
