Argument for government over-reach for the good of the unintelligent populace.
One of my biggest pet-peeves when proposing less government overreach on any range of topics is when authoritarians argue “Well that’s fine and dandy and will work for intelligent folks, but remember, most of the populace is unintelligent and needs the government to act
as a nanny state in their best interest.”
What is you’re go-to rebuttal? I feel like they’re side-stepping the argument.
