Dr. Sanity: Narcissism and Society - Part II

Dr. Sanity: Narcissism and Society - Part II: "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 baron's 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.'"
This is quite interesting. I've never deleved into the pyschology of party affiliation but this was quite a read.
