It's For Your Own Good

Do I believe that those who are trying to fundamentally change the US are really wanting to destroy the country? No, I believe that they are sincere in their desires. I believe that they are really trying to do what they think is best. And that is what worries me the most.

"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"
C. S. Lewis
