A story about "Free to Choose: A Personal Statement"

by Milton Friedman

I’m up to p. 66, where Friedman is bemoaning our “restrictive” government:

We are not free to buy an automobile without seat belts, though, for the time being, we are still free to choose whether or not to buckle up…

...Today you are not free to offer your services as a lawyer, a physician, a dentist, a plumber… without first getting a permit or license from a government official.

rolleyes! This book is both boring and irritating. Will I ever get through it?
