This One’s for Texas

Texas, per our conversation about those who hold an ‘unconstrained’ view of human nature feeling they have a moral imperative to ‘save’ us from ourselves, have you seen this story?

 

NYC Mayor Bloomberg’s Actual Defense of Large Drink Ban: ‘We’re Simply Forcing You to Understand’

“We’re not taking away anybody’s right to do things, we’re simply forcing you to understand that you have to make the conscious decision to go from one cup to another cup.”

“I would just like to … force the consumer to hopefully move over to the less fattening drinks and everybody will be better off.”

 

Not only is this story a perfect example of how the ‘unconstrained’ believe they are doing something ‘good,’ but it is also an excellent example of how irrational this belief is: “We’re not taking your choice away, we’re just forcing you?” They do not even realize that this is self-contradicting, bringing into serious doubt the judgment they claim to be using in making the decision to ‘force’ something on you in the first place.

 

Plain and simple, this is a sign of a tyrant, and of an evil person (Yes, I am calling Bloomberg evil – and I mean it. Forcing somebody to do anything against their will when it is not directly harming others is evil because it violates their natural right to their free will and conscience.  This is none of his bloody business.)

  1. I wish I could say “unbelievable” !
    Great example.
    I have heard other ridiculous things discussed in local government circles. Even in local homeowners associations.
    So I’ll respond as an officer responded to the German’s request for surrender. . .
    “NUTS !”
