Quote of the Day

Worrycrats, as I call them, are a special breed of totalitarian bureaucrats who spawn rapidly as society is socialized. These people concern themselves with our health, education, welfare, auto safety, drug intake, diet, and what have you. Worrycrats today outnumber any other professionals in history, so rapidly have they proliferated.

Leonard E. Read, The Freeman [April 1971]

And that was in 1971!

Update: And right on cue here comes another addition

There seems to be a rabid obsession by the control freak, busy body, anti fun police with their snouts in the taxpayers trough, to remove all risk out of human existence. It is all about having control over how we live our lives.
