"Though this seems minor, if we don’t handle the minor things, theycan unfortunately escalate into major things down the road," hesaid.

Unfortunately, this is the rule rather than the exception in how bureaucrats and other people in position of power and influence rule.

Even if there is no rational reason to think this way. It's a kind of a grotesque slippery slope line of thinking. It becomes much easier to predict a slippery slope when bad policy is enacted based on flimsy and faulty evidence and thinking.

Again. To me, the classic is the war on cigarettes. It was never supposed to come this far. We assured the government and activists would never attempt to ban it in private spheres. Yet. Here we are.

It will be the same with food. They've already begun their 'war' on sugar and salt.

If you think it will stop at 'sized' drinks and limiting quantities of salt in restaurants you're, once again, mistaken. We're like an abused spouse who can't come to the realization it's no good.
