    Yes, but it doesn't start that way.

    Government starts by forcing people to participate, and there's no guarantee that people will understand the right way to do so.

    For example, we graduate children into adulthood before educating them about 100% of legislation. Heck, they shouldn't even attend public school where they have to socialize with others until they understand the rules of engagement. Otherwise, they're vulnerable to bullying.

    In fact, you could say that school encourages bullying because it expects openminded performance, but then kids are allowed to make fun of others for being tools.

    There isn't a law that requires 100% justification from politicians, but there is a mechanism that encourages such justification. It's called "the vote".

    We don't need any new laws for this...we only need a voting public that cares.

    If you claim sexual harassment to be wrong, yet you defend anyone on your side for any reason,
    then you are a hypocrite and everything you say on the matter is just babble.
