“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. The robber baron’s cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience. They may be more likely to go to Heaven yet at the same time likelier to make a Hell of earth. This very kindness stings with intolerable insult. To be “cured” against one’s will and cured of states which we may not regard as disease is to be put on a level of those who have not yet reached the age of reason or those who never will; to be classed with infants, imbeciles, and domestic animals.”  ― C.S. Lewis, God in the Dock: Essays on Theology (Making of Modern Theology)

In today’s American society we are experiencing a soft tyranny of sorts sincerely exercised  for the good of its victims, the American people.  The modern Statist in America , as the author Mark Levin described the modern left wing liberal, is the living embodiment of the moral busybody.  Firm in their convictions and intent on the destruction of what they view as dangerous personal liberty.

We live in an age where government decides or tries to decide  for us among other things what food we should eat and how much;  how much water we need to flush our toilets; what kind of light bulbs we can use; what type of gas we can put in our cars; and now what type of health insurance coverage we should have.

An outsider must wonder how America survived for over a hundred plus years without the modern Administrative State and its  moral  busybodies managing every aspect of our lives from cradle to grave.

 

Oh how we have lost our way America.
