Statists look at that wheel and worry about what might go wrong, and decide they need to make that wheel "better".
So, they chip away at its roundness by encumbering that wheel with "laws" and regulations and red tape, until the wheel is no longer a functional wheel. It may still roll along- barely- but it is no longer even really round. And, it is now more dangerous, which makes the statists point to the dangers that their meddling has created and say it shows a need for more chiselwork.
Civilization needs to be rid of The State and its insane supporters. The sooner the better.
