In which persuasion is better than force

In the news today: a slightly silly charity has said that people who give any booze at all to children should be prosecuted.

It’s silly, because, banning something doesn’t stop it happening. You can jump up and down and say “don’t do that” all you like, and it will still happen. You have to persuade people not to do it, rather than just tell them they can’t. These people don’t really seem to realise that.
