It's a Free Country

I was just asked a question similar to, "Is it legal to ..."?

That spawned this response:
By the way, in the US, up until the past 30 years or so, the default status for pretty much any activity was "legal" unless specifically forbidden. We'd answer such questions as yours with, "It's a free country." Nowadays, people think they have to ask permission of their government to do anything. Sad.
