C. S. Lewis on Tyranny

Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would 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.

-C. S. Lewis
English essayist (1898 - 1963)

The tyranny of the jew torments us for the sheer, malevolent pleasure of it. It is not enough for the kike to kill you; he must destroy your spirit and all that you value first. Look at the German's long, drawn out agony on the road to extinction.

Amen to that! God save us from the busybodies that haven't learned that the world doesn't want to be saved...The world wants to be left alone.
