And the Nanny state continues apace

Dear Peasants,

We know what’s best so just shut up and let us run your lives for you.

Your kind, caring and all-powerful Nanny,
The Virginia Legislature

“[A] wise and frugal government…shall restrain men from injuring one another, shall leave them otherwise free to regulate their own pursuits of industry and improvement, and shall not take from the mouth of labor the bread it has earned. This is the sum of good government.”
–Thomas Jefferson

But what does freedom mean? It means that hundreds of millions of ordinary human beings live their lives as they see fit — regardless of what their betters think. That is fine, unless you see yourself as one of their betters.”
–Thomas Sowell

“In a free society, government has the responsibility of protecting us from others, but not from ourselves.”
–Walter Williams

“The ultimate result of shielding men from the effects of folly is to fill the world with fools.”
— Herbert Spencer
