Mandating Your Health is Tyranny <– Heinlein

“What I fear most are affirmative actions of sober and well-intentioned men, granting to government powers to do something that appears to need doing.”

There is no worse tyranny than to force a man to pay for what he does not want merely because you think it would be good for him.

— Robert Anson HeinleinThe Moon is a Harsh Mistress (1965)

The Rush to Pass Bad Laws

Health_Care_Protests.20090812123124The State always moves slowly and grudgingly towards any purpose that accrues to society’s advantage, but moves rapidly and with alacrity towards one that accrues to its own advantage; nor does it ever move towards social purposes on its own initiative, but only under heavy pressure, while its motion towards anti-social purposes is self-sprung.
