La citation du jour (3)

The ultimate step will come when we accept that government should not only prohibit unhealthy activities but actually requirehealthy behaviour. The forced calisthenics Winston endures in the novel 1984 happily remain just as unthinkable today as they were in Orwell’s time, but should we scoff smugly at the idea that one day, taxpayers frustrated with an ever-growing fiscal burden might think that salvation lies in dragging fat men onto treadmills? If they do, how long before people wonder how we ever got along in a world where such things were seen as a matter of private, individual choice?

-Adam Allouba
