You could say Home Own Associations are sometimes run like the mob. Pay their fees and they'll take care of you, right? You can never tell how they're going to be operated. Maybe it'll be the friendly kind of mafia. That's can happen sometimes, right? Most often, and the HOA can go either way, they'll extort you and boss you around and make living where you live a nightmare.
"Man, we are stupid sometimes."
We can all admit this to ourselves: Sometimes, humans don't always have the brightest ideas. Think about it. Common knowledge is, "Don't stick your tongue in an electrical socket," right? That HAD to come from somewhere. Someone HAD to do that first for us to learn not to do it again. We need to police ourselves from ourselves, and these are the jobs to do so.

And as long as you're alert, those moments can come out of anywhere.
