C.S. Lewis On Nazi Nannies

Mundabor's Blog

 

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. Great quote. And might I add that “God In The Dock” is an excellent book. Highly recommended.
