Have you ever wondered what it would be like if the government controlled absolutely everything in our lives?
The government is involved in more of our decision making than you might realize when, for example, they impose protectionist measures on trade which then limit consumer choice.
Another example of the government trying to make choices for us comes in the form of warning labels on products.
Earlier this week, I spoke with David Clement at the Nanny State Store run by Students For Liberty. This is a store where goods like chips, pop and chocolate bars are covered in labels to give people an idea of what it would be like if the government mandated putting a label on all things it deemed bad for us.
David’s message? Nobody needs the government holding their hand in order to make choices.
