What's that got to do with anything? We're discussing the base/core rationale behind it regardless of whatever sky-is-falling laws have been enacted. What that means is, regardless of what's in the law, people are questioning the rationality of it.

AUS also has a well known (and semi-recent) track record for enacting draconian laws around these types of things based on irrational impulses. That is no justification for it and if people have issue with it they should be allowed to air those issues rather than accept it as "oh well that's the law, so it shouldn't be argued."
