You and I are constantly told we should "leave it to the professionals". We are presumed too incompetent to do it ourselves, and are told we need to pay someone to do it for us, so we don't get hurt.
Except... there is one profession that if we choose to hire a professional practitioner, we could be "arrested". In this case, we are told we must only use amateurs and shouldn't hire a professional.
Where can you find this inconsistent government position? Prostitution.
And don't say it has to do with protecting "family values". Compulsory government schooling is as anti-family values as you can get, and they have no problem promoting this.
