Why do so many assume a breaker protects the load where a plug and receptacle is involved?

Do you rewire rooms when you add lamps or TV’s? Golly, you’re really risking things if you’re only using a 1 amp lamp on a 20A circuit!

Portable devices that have plugs include some sort of current protection. His saw has a breaker, probably right on the motor, other times in the switch mechanism, that protects the saw.

It makes perfect sense to size a circuit to a hardwired device. This is not one of those cases…
