Petition to ban the ... ?

What does Bastiat's heavily satirical petition from the candlemakers and the idea to ban the single most deadly nuclear reactor have in common?

Guess.

Given that they want to ban free trade and hydrogen monoxide respectively, the Sues Bradford and Kedgeley might want to take note.

UPDATE: I've changed the link for 'The Petition of the Candlemakers' because I've just noticed the buggers at that first link only had up half of the bloody petition! Sheesh already.
