I agree completely.

You're right here too... except worse than what you've said here, the
government doesn't want to be 'parents' to all the children out there
but also 'parents' to all the adults too!



I'm not trying to give users what they want, I'm trying to give them
freedom, which they can then accept or reject. If people don't want
freedom, they may be out of luck with me, but I won't allow them to 
define for me what is right, what is worth spending my life for.
