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

Dang but Mr. Lewis had it right. Sadly, that is exactly what America is becoming under the ‘rat/socialists.

Good quote. I’ve searched but I can’t find where (book, speech,...) this is from. Do you, by any chance, have it? (I seem to be on a C.S. Lewis reading spree ATM.)

Libs would call C.S. Lewis a racist.
