in Hubris and humility, Nanny State, Philosophy of Freedom

… is this recent Facebook post by Bob Higgs:

Democracy: how else can so many unqualified and irresponsible persons decide how other people, nearly all of them complete strangers, must live their lives?

DBx: Progressives famously favor rule by experts. I share this Progressive desire. And because no one is more expert in me than me – and no one is more expert in you than you – I hope that Progressives will join me in calling for rolling back a great deal of government, thus allowing each adult to lead his or her life as he or she chooses, constrained only by the equal rights of all other adults to do the same.
