I am at a loss to understand what the logic is in arguing that because something used to be a lot worse than it is now, or could be a lot worse than it is now, it should be left alone. In this country, I thought we were always about, "How can we make any situation (even those that aren't bad) better than it is now?" I've heard it about slavery (working poor are better off than black slaves, so what's the problem?) and gun control (they'll figure out another way to cause harm, or governments kill, so why stop individuals from doing the same?).
