Well Said.

From Samizdata

Of all tyrannies a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It may be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies, The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for own good will torment us without end, for they do so with the approval of their own conscience.


- C.S. Lewis

God save me from well meaning busybodies.

Amazing!!! Do you even read the posts before you comment on them? I know it's not just me, since you repeat your performance on other sites as well.

Ever had an original thought?

And once again, you prove my point with your non-sequiter.
