A look at liberal utopia

*Shudder*

But you’d better get used to litanies of petty tyrannies like this one, because those tyrannies are being implemented just as quickly as docile, weak sheeple can rationalize acquiescing to them. If you don’t think so, read some of these comments, and know that such “common sense” capitulation has already cost us far more freedom than the War on Something or Other — or, for that matter, the Islamists themselves — ever will.

They don’t wear jackboots and scary black uniforms anymore, and they’re doing it one small step at a time instead of suddenly and all at once; it’s all in the name of “progress,” and it’s all “for your own good.” And we’re making it easy for them, each and every one of us. It’s not just Jefferson’s memorial that’s sinking into the swamp; his legacy is as well.

And thus is Glenn’s prophecy fulfilled. Although you gotta admit that one was kinda obvious, right?

  1. While this is seen as a “California” problem, in reality it’s an “urbanization” problem. IOW, any place that gets sufficiently urbanized will start to experience this kind of incipient nanny-state behavior, even if there’s not a single California immigrant in the town. Cities in the Northeast and even in places like Michigan can be some of the worst in terms of “for your own good” policies.

    However, Berkeley and SF are not California, and California is not the US. Yes, there are always busybodies who seem to thrive on the ability to screw with other people’s lives “for their own good” but those types of actions are just as likely to provoke a backlash when tried in areas outside their little enclaves as they are to be embraced (and when they are embraced, it’s invariably in college towns like Bozeman, Boulder and Laramie.)

    The reason these silly laws exist in places like Berkeley is because all the people in Berkely and SF who have common sense or the ability to reason left a long time ago. As soon as the costs of these policies are revealed to the public at large (as opposed to the nannies who embrace them) the ideas start to look a lot less attractive.
