I'll bring it back around to econ since that's about where we started: barriers of entry are generally detrimental for participants in a market, but beneficial for the quality of product. (cont'd)
@codewiz When the "market" is "improving everyone's quality of life," it may be a net good to raise the barrier of entry to improve quality, since everyone, even those excluded from participating directly, still see the benefit.
(Put another way, there's a reason we like representative instead of direct democracies*)
(*actual representative democracies, lol.)
