Piers Morgan: We All Need Some Nannying, Sometimes

Loathsome statist supports loathsome statist in controversy over loathsome statism; film at 11.

If a Mayor can't do things to make his city's populace healthier - what's the point of his job? Bloomberg's 100% right on supersized soda.

What's the point of his job? Time was mayors were thought to have their hands pretty full with financial matters, running the cops, firefighters, metro transit workers, garbage haulers, street repair teams, and education system.

Statists always think this way. I happen to agree: Mayor Bloomberg is 100% right about the deleterious effects of too much sugar. And "too much" is a small amount, as we're just not designed to handle such large quantities of sugar.

What does that have to do with the government making up laws, though?

They really do think this way: The ultimate validation of an opinion is Government Action. If there is no Government Action behind something, it's not really true. Further, if you do not press for Government Action on something, you must not believe in it all that much.

Only Government Action proves your meritorious intention and only Government Action vindicates an opinion.

This world we used to live in, where people believed passionately in things and argued privately that others should believe these things too? Yeah, that world was for the birds. The real way to Show You're Right is to get a loathsome status to encode your opinion into law.

Passing An Law is now the ideological equivalent of Getting Married. Until you Pass An Law, you're just living in sin. You haven't sanctified your relationship with an idea. There is no state recognition of your relationship with the idea.

You're going to want to marry that idea. And many, many other ideas too.
