In honor of former Mayor of NYC, Michael “Nanny” Bloomberg:
If I knew for a certainty that a man was coming to my house with a conscious design of doing me good, I should run for my life.
—Henry David Thoreau
My contention is that good men (not bad men) consistently acting upon that position would act as cruelly and unjustly as the greatest tyrants. 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.
