Comment on SEC Proposed Rule #S7-24-15: 

I am a 32-year-old average retail investor. This rule does nothing to keep me safe. It only limits my choices and my freedom. I do not need any proxy or government to keep me safe from the financial markets. I will either educate myself sufficiently to understand these products, or I will lose money trading them. Both are my, and every single other investor's, unique responsibilities to manage. The last thing I need is more government trying to hold my hand when I am capable of protecting myself so much better, cheaper, efficiently, and honestly than the SEC or US government ever could be.
