Zero-based legislation

Instead of asking which laws ought to be repealed, why not undertake a review of all the legislation passed since, say, 1990, asking yourselves — or, possibly, the public — whether each piece of legislation is, first, in the public interest and, secondly, actually necessary ?


Why does this idea matter?

You're starting from the premise that legislation is necessary unless proven otherwise ;  in my submission this is simply wrong :  legislation ought to be considered necessary only if proven so.
