If you're intent on forcing suboptimal decisions on them anyway, however, then I can see how a more complete model of human behavior would be useful, as opposed to the simplified material-only version favored by most political economists.

"If we had a real government – the kind that works – we would acknowledge that gun violence is not one big problem with one big solution. It is millions of people with different risk profiles voting their self-interest as they see it.
So stop acting like one side is stupid. Both sides of the gun issue are scared, and both have legitimate reasons to be that way. Neither side is “right.” "

"Third, the idea has spread that people and groups have a right not to be offended. This may sound innocuous. Politeness is a virtue, after all.

Since offence is subjective, the power to police it is both vast and arbitrary."
