"Of all tyrannies, a tyranny exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It may be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies.

I am so sharing this with my doc whose 5 year old started doing this without any understanding of WTF he was doing. And, of course, they laugh at him and can't figure out why it happens more.
