...the relationship of business and regulation is sort of like understanding the relationship between plants and cattle.

Edible plants that are good for us should oppose the existence of cattle, who consume them out of existence.

Grass should reluctantly support the existence of cattle, who, though they eat the grass, keep other plants from outgrowing and overtaking them.

And noxious and poisonous plants should applaud the efforts of cattle, who eliminate all competition to the fields.

The only difference is that people wouldn't bring cattle into a cornfield to eat the weeds, yet they introduce regulation to attack unethical businesses - businesses who have no problem turning regulation to their advantage.
