Bird Flu v. Big Government: We're so screwed.

Bird flu is now being transmitted between humans. Naturally governments everywhere will use this as an excuse to increase their power. I posted a long time ago about why big government wasn't the solution to bird flu, but there's one major reason that could use refreshing: the FDA and other regulatory agencies hamper the development of drugs and vaccines with their silly rules. This isn't just a problem with bird flu, but when it comes to pandemics that could kill billions of people, it's especially frightening.
