What if the dictator was more interested in his own legacy as a reformer than in personal liberty in a free society? What if he thought he could write any law and regulate any event because his knowledge of human behavior and unintended consequences was superior to that of the people he swore to serve?
What if all of this really happened? What if this is not a fable, but a fair recounting of life today in America’s biggest city? What is the state of human freedom in New York City when the mayor can tell people what soft drinks to consume and how to consume them, and the voters let him do it? What will they let the government do to us next?
