And in regulation for most other industries, there is a single side that wants rules that only big giant corporations can deal with, and artificial barriers to entry into the marketplace that protects their supremacy in the market.
I'm an electrical engineer. I just finished my engineering degree this semester. For my senior design project, I built a complete autonomous helicopter using an open-source autopilot project. It cost me a grand total of about $1,400 for the whole project, and it performs as well as UAV's that cost the military about $55,000 each. I wanted to pay the money to branch that project and get it FAA certified, so that I could use it to start a business building and flying commercial UAV's. The FAA requires hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of investment, and years of testing to validate a flight system, even though the drone I made is no more or less dangerous than the R/C helicopter I used as the flight platform. The methods I used for communication are well documented, as was the code written to establish fail-safe behaviors, and the circuitry used to minimize hazards in the event of things like instrument failure. Still, it takes insane amounts of money, and years of red tape, to LEGALLY fly a drone the size of a desktop fan.
Each of those legislations were presented in the name of preserving public safety. I value that goal, and I approve of any reasonable legislation towards that end. But the larger result of those legislations is that only companies with huge amounts of resources are able to produce goods for that industry. Economically, it creates artificial barriers to entry in the marketplace that stifles competition, and diminishes the power of consumer choice. Both of those results are detrimental to the free market, and to the social mobility of people who want to participate in it. Because of those laws, my only real option as an engineer is to go work for an aerospace company and take whatever pay they decide to give me, even though I'm willing and able to run a business and take on the greater risk, for the chance of a greater reward.
