“Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would 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
C.S. Lewis was the author of the Narnia chronicles, and a Christian theorlogian born in the late 1800’s, and died in the 1960’s, on the same day John Kennedy was assassinated.
