Do this! Don’t do that! Eat this repulsive vegetable. Stay away from that tantalizing pastry. Don’t smoke, don’t drink, don’t enjoy any unauthorized pleasure. Don’t make value judgments. Don’t confuse us with facts and logic. Do what you’re told. It’s for your own good. Wear your seatbelt, wear your helmet, wear a pink ribbon. Smile! Nag, nag, nag. Know-it-alls and busybodies everywhere. Aren’t you sick of them? – “Random Thoughts on Guardianship,” F.R. Duplantier
Get used to being told what to do. Our government is going to take better and better care of us in the years ahead.
