Nails and Consequences

The AP reports on a scuffle in a nail salon. Proprietors resist state authorities there to enforce occupational licensing statutes.

The state is always ultimately violence. Resist and you'll inevitably end up on the wrong side of a truncheon.

And that's the danger of petitioning the state. It's an act of violence. Sometimes it's plausibly worth threatening others. But for nail polish? Is a manicure that non-euvoluntary?

Blessed are the tased.

Do you have suggestions on where we could find more examples of this phenomenon?
