Because almost every coercive law causes a disturbance in the complex ecology of human interaction, it causes multiple negative side effects. Over time, upset with these side effects, and forgetting their root cause, people add a new law to address each side effect that the earlier law created. These then produce offspring of even more negative side effects, and the cycle continues. This is one reason why government tends to grow exponentially, almost like a reproductive population. Each law requires the production of several more, and so on.
