    That's probably why it's best not to invent too many demands, but people like to give orders and lots of people are convinced that governments are set up to tell people what to do, instead of just keeping them from doing wrong, again.  The first time is impossible to avoid. Which is why much crime prevention is a crock.

    Anyway, when it comes to safety and how many people are injured, that's a real problem because, so far, very few people have been injured as a result of nuclear power accidents, even as 40,000 are killed every year by automobiles.  Never mind how many are maimed and injured.

    The on-going contamination of the natural environment is probably a better base from which to argue, but, until now Mother Nature is supposed to be our toilet and animals have no right not to get injured.  After all, we eat them.

    Of course, that's why animal rights activists cause such consternation.  I figure when animals get rights, maybe humans will get them, too.
