Quote of the day....

"That the only purpose for which power can be rightfully exercised over any member of a civilized community, against his will, is to prevent harm to others. His own good, either physical or moral, is not a sufficient warrant."

- John Stuart Mill, author, economist and philosopher. Wrote must read book "On Liberty"
However, in contrast to classic liberals like Mill, where the value of liberty out-trumps the benefits from intervention, we have neo-liberals that absolutely know what is better for you than you do. But I view neo-liberalism as laziness, one and two.
