Skip to comments.Liberalism's flawed logic on government power in a nutshell...
Posted on 01/30/2014 2:10:14 PM PST by The Looking Spoon
There are lots of ways to argue against the "government knows what's better for you than you do" meme...but this sums it up pretty beautifully...
A good take-off of a GREAT movie line.
Yes. They really think that way and it makes perfect sense to them. They know better than we do.
All that’s missing is Freeman saying “Good luck.”
Thanks for sharing your work here.
Yes, that’s absolutely it.
I’ve been trying to explain this worldview to a libinlaw, with little success.
Mostly because there’s a lot of self-righteousness at stake,
giving up on the idea that people are “basically good, but act badly because of their environment”.
“Some” know better than others...
invariably, EVERY liberal thinks he’s in the first group.
What movie is this from?
Batman. The guy is an accounting weenie trying to blackmail Billionaire Bruce Wayne, who he also believes is Batman...a violent vigilante.
The Dark Knight.
It’s the scene where a young attorney for Wayne Corp. figures out Bruce is Batman, he tries to blackmail the company and Fox (played by Freeman) reminds him that he (this puny sniveling lawyer) might not want to blackmail someone who beats thugs and killers for sport, all without confirming or denying if he was right in the first place.
