Here's a great example of molecular Stockholm syndrome:
OY! Broadly welcome, as in, "We're not dead.""We broadly welcome the proposed measures," said Pierre Sivac, president if the International Fragrance Association, the perfume industry's self-regulatory body.
The regulators won the day, not by promising a giant nanny state, but by only putting forth tiny pieces, one at a time. That gives the appearance of irreversibility, because everybody thinks that you can't move the colossus back for any one over-reach. But people are basically sick of over-regulation in toto. That is how to play this. Don't try to use fragrance over-regulation as objectionable for its own sake - just make it a symptom of OTHER PEOPLE'S misery.
"You lost your job because of X? Just because the company couldn't afford a lawyer? Sheesh. Sorry, man. Yeah, they're even over-regulating fragrance, if you can believe THAT!"
"Really? Maybe that's why all the colognes suck now."
"Exactly! You got it, man!"
Hey - as long as my cabin has an internet connection, it's as good as a gun port!
