My favorite quote

Well, one of them. It dovetails so nicely with the Social Security debate:

“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. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; 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.” - C. S. Lewis
I think I might have mentioned this before, but this is the only quote I have on my desk at work. Word up.
