By the same token, it has been making us more and more dependent on government. The flip side of dependency is control. The more dependent one is on another, the more control the other has over them. Perhaps the underlying motivation is not so innocent as politicians trying to buy their constituents’ love. Perhaps it’s far more insidious."

In the end, what we'll wind up with: washers and dishwashers that take an hour to run a load, and dryers that take 3 hours or longer to dry a load, depending on what's in it. In short, it's machine use discouragement, and we're back to Granny, the wringer washer or scrub board, and clotheslines...not to mention having our kids stand in chairs beside us at the sink helping us do dishes by hand.

So much for labor-saving devices!"
