"Paternalism, or (as it is now called, in a strange shift of gender and status) 'the nanny state,' has always had its defenders amongst the elite. After all, it is the elite who define what is good; what is virtuous. It is little surprise that they would seek to defend their mores, even to the point of crushing the individual freedoms of others. Over time, this has taken many forms." (02/22/11)
