C.S. Lewis vs. the State

Email Print

As presented by David Theroux, well known as president of the Independent Institute, but lesser known as president of the C.S. Lewis Society of California. For what it’s worth, here’s my favorite Lewis quote:

Of all tyrannies a tyranny sincerely 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.
