A Quote from C.S. Lewis from Mona Charon

Warning of Soft Despots…..Do you know anyone who fits the title of Soft Despot?

” 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 the robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron’s cruelty may at some point be satisfied: 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.”

Please share…
