Well, although I agree with you, I think it's deeper than that. It's the belief that because something seems dangerous, and serves no useful purpose to *them*, there's no reason for it to serve any useful purpose to *anyone* and society would be better without it.
It's accepting that somehow, someone else can determine what's right or wrong, and you accept it because as long as you're a good guy, it won't affect you personally.
It's the mentality that believes you can give
a man fish forever, and he'll somehow learn how to fish.
A bit dramatic, but every now and then this needs to be reposted:
First they came for the communists,
and I didn't speak out because I wasn't a communist.
Then they came for the trade unionists,
and I didn't speak out because I wasn't a trade unionist.
Then they came for the Jews,
and I didn't speak out because I wasn't a Jew.
Then they came for me
and there was no one left to speak out for me.
