Our Self-Appointed betters and moralizing keepers do insist on protecting us for our own good, do they not?
C.S. Lewis nailed it when he said:
Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies.
