C.S. Lewis quote

I tried to make this my sig, but it's too long. So I'm posting it here. C.S. Lewis was a pretty smart dude.

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 baronís 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 , The Humanitarian Theory of Punishment
