One man's view of a small corner of the planet.
The opinions are my own and, while I welcome your comments, I will maintain decorum here.
The complaint about a Nanny State is when a government regulates a person's choices to protect them from themselves.Consumer protection laws protect people from the actions of others.A libertarian like myself, and many libertarian-oriented conservatives, are adamantly opposed to the first, but have no problem with the second.
Good, Elliott. That's sensible. But the post said nothing about libertarianism. And I've never heard Sykes claim to be a libertarian, have you?The point here is that Sykes disagrees with you on your point two. (He does disagreeabble well.)So what was your point? Are you surprised? Did you think that Sykes was with you on this?
