Of all tyrannies a tyranny sincerely 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 baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for own good will torment us without end, for they do so with the approval of their own conscience.
C.S. Lewis

At least it is possible to see the baron robber, and his rule usually tends to be rather short. The subtle one sets an example for successors and the restrictions implemented for the common good will continue to grow until the people snap or become mindless.

I think the US government is a good example of that.

In regards to being a responsible man, would it be interesting to learn, after six years of accumulating all the wisdom you could, that you had it right all along when you were 8, and that to be the most responsible of men, one must be the most light-hearted and care-free of boys?
I look at the complexity of the world, and yet see that God is but a Divine Child with simple motives, in that he creates all of this, from atoms to the most complex biological organisms, just because he wants us as his friends.
