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
