I'm from the government and I'm here to screw you

Daily Mail - Like many toddlers, Zak Hessey was a fussy eater who refused his mother's healthy home cooking. Concerned about his falling weight, his parents sought the advice of doctors. That simple act triggered a shocking chain of events that led to the youngster being put into foster care for four months. Paul and Lisa Hessey believe in the long-term benefits of healthy eating and rejected advice to feed their two-year-old son high-calorie snack food such as chocolate, crisps and cakes.

To their horror, social workers put Zak into foster care 'to assess his needs' and allegedly threatened the couple with the loss of their parental rights if they fought the decision in court. ...But they went to court and, after four months, Zak returned home with the blessing of social services, who accepted he had good and caring parents. Zak is now putting on some weight, but his eating problems were not cured by his time in the care of 'experts' and, much to the annoyance of his parents, he has acquired a taste for junk food.

This is what happens when society starts turning to the government to do this, that and everything else for them. Eventually they start doing things that you won't like and even worse, they're not accountable in any meaningful sense to anyone. I'd like to say, when that nannying scumbag comes to your door saying, "I'm from the government and I'm here to help", get your gun; but most of us gave that up long ago.
