"It is better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies, 
the robber baron's cruelty sometimes sleeps, his cupidity sometimes 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
