Skip to comments.Piers Morgan: People Need Dictators and Slave Masters “Occasionally”
Posted on 03/13/2013 10:56:56 AM PDT by Tolerance Sucks Rocks
Piers Morgan and New York Mayor Michael Bloombergs want to be dictators and slave masters. Regulating a person’s diet is the regulation of a person’s life. Here was Morgans response to a guest who disagreed with him on sugary drink control:
I think people need [these types of laws] occasionally, particularly on issues like smoking, drinking, guzzling sodas too big for them, you know, eating 16 Big Macs a day, whatever it may be, the reality is we all need a bit of nannying about that. Thats why so many people are on diets. Thats a form of nanny state.When governments pass laws that force people to eat a certain way in the name of this is good for you and society, they are not being nannies. They are being dictators and slave masters.
Once you go down the road of forced good intentions, there are no stop signs along the way. Today its sugary drinks; tomorrow dictators will want to tell us where to live, the jobs we should have, the friends we should associate with, how to spend our money, and what we can say.
In fact, weve already gone down this road. Watch what you say or youll be cited for hate speech. The money we earn is not really ours. When government dictators determine by law to exempt some of our income from taxation, thats a sure indicator that the government believes it can claim all our income. We could take it all, but weve decided to exempt some from taxation.
The Democrats have just proposed $1 trillion in new tax confiscation because they believe it’s their money to spend. We’re not capable of spending it in the right way.
Democrat Nancy Pelosi said: Tax cuts are spending. . . . They are called tax expenditures. Spending money on tax breaks. And thats the spending that we must curtail as well.
Taxation is never sold as being bad for anyone. Its always for the greater good. The same is true for laws governing speech that is said to make people uncomfortable or is defined as hateful.
How many times have we heard liberals pontificate over how they are pro-choice? One of the favorite pro-abortion slogans is, Our bodies, our lives, our right to decide!
Being pro-choice is only legitimate if a woman wants to kill her pre-born baby. But dont ever propose this slogan: Our bodies, our lives, our right to decide what to eat and drink!
Its one thing if well-concerned people put campaigns together to help people make good dietary choices. Im all for it, as long as (1) they pay for it, and (2) the government doesnt force anybody to comply.
There was a time when blacks were said not to be capable of freedom. They needed the security of slavery because they couldnt make the right choices on their own. Slavery was said to be necessary for them. Here are two examples of how slavery was often justified:
Piers Morgan and Mayor Michael Bloomberg would fit right in with the slavery arguments of the past. We need masters to force us to behave a certain way because some people arent capable of making good decisions as we see them. Slavery is alive and well in America, and it does by the name liberalism.
I am sure it has been ‘asked’ before,
Why would Piers emigrate to the ‘Land of the Free, Home of the Brave’ to ‘escape’ a Monarchy and then continually run down the “Adopted Country’ and appear to want it to turn into - at the very least - a Monarchy?
Proving once again that the only problem progressive leftists ever had with chattel slavery in America is that the slaves were privately owned.
Under my rule, speech codes would strictly prohibit anyone labeling any speech as prohibited.
As dictator, I would control elections to ensure that they were completely honest. I would use all my powers to force everyone to abide by the results of honest elections — even if the election resulted in me losing all power.
Under my dictatorship, everyone would be required to eat and drink only what they wanted to eat and drink. They would be required to allow their neighbours to overindulge, unless they could convince them to do otherwise by reason or example.
And how is The New Slavery justified, Piers? I work to support my family. If I’m working to support someone else’s family as well the least they an do is get their asses over to my house on Saturday morning to mow the lawn and wash the car. And a “thank you” would be nice. But I ain’t waiting.
Some people are too stupid to be free. Piers is one of them.
They are called MOTHERS. Each of us already has one.
It could happen here and it may have already started.
My stress level could be cured if someone would just start whacking these people.
No, it's called personal responsibility.....
and it's VOLUNTARY!
Bloody socialist wanker.
I bet he thinks he will be the dictator....but he’d make a better slave and told to shut up...
The libtards who favor paternalism lose sight of the fact that the fundamental basis of achieving the individual's good is his guidance by his own judgment. They show absolutely no respect for the character of the consumers as rational beings, who must be persuaded by facts and logic, and not be compelled as though they were brutes, in the name of something allegedly more valuable than their free judgment and their dignity as rational beings.
Each human being, as the possessor of reason, is valuable and competent and should be free to run his own life and pursue his own happiness. The use of any specific case as the pretext for overturning this principle opens the floodgates to unlimited destruction though the use of physical force to overrule peoples judgment, and thus, to prevent them from achieving their well-being or to compel them to act against their own well-being.
Why didn’t Bloomy just go for realtiy and hit all the EBT cards for $100.00 bucks a month because we all know these people do not eat right and could slim down!!!!!!!!!
...voting the wrong way...
Politicians who don’t believe people can properly feed and educate themselves are certainly not going to accept that such people are capable of choosing their own leaders!
I have heard LIEbertarians support dietary laws because they don’t want to pay the health care bills of fatso next door. That is the “logic” that will take us further down the Soviet/Nazi path. They don’t want old people to live either because they don’t want to pay for Medicare.
This is the logic libertarians use to feed limo liberalism’s Soviet dreams. King Bloomers used to claim he is an independent libertarian. His excuse for banning soda cups is the “cost of healthcare.”
Was this before or after he gave the order to “burn the church” in the movie Patriot?
I wonder if Morgan would like to be one of the 100 million killed by people who thought like him in the last century?
No empathy from the Left, ever, it seems...
[rolls eyes] Course I hear old Piersy has tated his share of dicks, so he should know.
