Ott's last 'graph, which you put in your block quote, pretty much says it all.

Most lefties I know are not risk-takers. They think risk, with its possibility of failure at the hands of others, is inherently unfair.

Hence the urge to regulate everything in sight -- to minimize the possibility that someone might become a victim.

To be sure, there is unfairness and victimization in life. But to try to remove it all with well intentioned (but boneheaded) public policy will diminish our greatness as a nation.
