C.S. Lewis on the tyranny of self-righteous busybodies


"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."
C.S. Lewis, God in the Dock
