New book just comes straight out with it: “Against Autonomy: The Case for Collective Paternalism”. “…when government makes (some) decisions for us, we gain not only in personal welfare but also in autonomy, if only because our time is freed up to deal with what most concerns us….” Yep, the mask is off now. It’s for your own good!

The left is a never-ending parade of trial balloons. They love to pose things in a “reasonable” tone of voice, starting off with a “Y’knooooOOOooow…” But you have to take everything they “just sort’a say” and realize that’s where they’re ultimately headed.

“Reasonable” gun laws…

Wondering why there’s such-and-such sexual taboo…

They’re always “just theorizing” on point A when they really have point Z in mind, and they don’t want to shock you.

This so called book sums up “Progressive-ism” in a nutshell. In order for you to be safer, we need to control every aspect of your lives. Makes being a member of the Borg look like a good time.

Call it communism, statism, socialism, marxism, or progressivism. It’s all the same, & it’s wha Sunsteen is promoting.

The control-freak left all think this way. That’s why they congregate into their hive-like big cities. They want to be controlled and be one with the democrat (aka Borg) collective. They want to exist like soul-less entities plugged into the Matrix. And they want YOU to live this meaningless life too, whether you want to or not.

It’s official: slavery is freedom.

Did I hear a muffled “I told you so” from George Orwell’s grave?

Isn’t that what we all want? The opportunity to not have to think for ourselves?
