I sure hope the good folks at The Absurd Report don’t mind me using their material!
“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. 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
Since it’s so obvious which political party this refers to I’ll pass on saying it.
Edit: Added bold type since it wasn’t exactly clear what I was referring to. Namely, the worse of the two choices.
