Quite often, the government starts with good intention to solve a problem.
Somehow, they end up making things worse. It must be their approach - impractical and lack of common sense.
One example is the Privacy and Data Protection Act (or PDPA). The original problem was that telemarketeers were calling the public on their mobile phones and it has become a nuisance.
Instead of dealing with this specific problem, the government implemented the PDPA after a long period of discussion.
Instead of helping people the PDPA turns out to be an additional harassment on our lives.
This article explans the problems that many people face after PDPA. It did not make their life better. It made it worse.
