Something To Ponder

C.S. Lewis nailed why do-gooders can be such menaces: "Of all tyrannies, a tyranny exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It may be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber barron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satisified; 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."
