C.S. Lewis On Nazi Nannies

Nazi Nanny.

 

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

Yep, a great Proddie, this one.

Kudos to the looking spoon

  1. What an excellent quote! I’m writing it down for future reference! 🙂

    Can you tell me which of Lewis’s works it comes from?

  2. Who is that thin-lipped old shrew? Pelosi?

    • She is Kathleen Sebelius, the Health Minister and the engine behind the notorious HHS (official name: health and human services) mandate.
      Officially a Catholic, in reality pure Nazi evil.

      If you use the search function of this blog you’ll find several blog posts.

  3. Cheers, will do.

    And to second Mimi above – a quote that needs copying and using at an appropriate time.
