Jurassic Park: An anti-libertarian fable

Old rich guy: Let's build a theme park, with real dinosaurs!
Lawyers: You do realise that health and safety will never let us have real dinosaurs wandering around a theme park, right?
Old rich guy: Sure they will! We'll show them our amazing plans, and it will be fine!
...
Health & Safety Report: *Points out the lack of redundant systems, that things fail _unsafe_, and that all it would take is a single computer glitch and everyone will be eaten.*
Lawyers: Told you so!
Rich old guy: I know! Let's build it somewhere without all of this unnecessary government regulation!
Running & Screaming: Ensues
