Legislative Feature Creep

Touching one last moment on the Roberts-Castronova podcast, in this election year I like the comparison between feature creep and the political need to “do something.” Games that try to do everything usually do most things poorly. The candidates will promise to solve every problem under the sun, including contradictory “problems,” and they are not even using a test server to check for unintended consequences.

A call for limited government is a desire to end feature creep in the legislature. Federalism is beta-testing before trying to upload new things to the central server.
