Drawbridges built with red tape.

To certify or not to certify?

At a time when there is a call for the reduction of the 'red tape' involved in business, it is fascinating to hear business owners argue for extra regulation.

Listening to a hairdresser argue for more regulation of Hairdressers reminded me again how one persons freedom is another's prison. The desire of cooperation, community and collaboration is at odds to monopoly, greed and elitism and I think red tape is really the red line that separates the two.

It seems to me that certification is just one bit of Red Tape, and has been seen as a bad thing/good thing that needs addressing ever since the year dot.
