But the way I see it is, when we get elected into parliaments, we also
create for ourselves the responsibility to decide what regulations we would
like to have instead.

IF the children must be thought of, HOW can we think of the children without
destroying user freedoms and rights? This is really an issue we, as
regulators, must address.

And yes, I do believe that when you're running for parliament and aiming to
be part of the legislative process, you're a regulator. Regulations aren't
bad per se, and in fact the Pirate Parties from all over  the world are
needed for the purpose of making sure all internet regulation on state and
EU level is GOOD. And when one regulation that is good turns out to have
loopholes that are bad, we amend the regulation so the loopholes disappear.
