Theres something about billions of dollars being applied to people that helps them change their minds about subjective limits.

I'd like to see limits set by reason and science, and not by lobbying groups and multibillion dollar companies with something expensive to sell and not enough customers.
Be fearful when others are greedy, and greedy when others are fearful. Just another form of "buy low, sell high" for those who have trouble with things. This rule is not universal. Do not buy a 1973 Pinto because everyone else is afraid of it.
