Take school cafeteria food, for example. The utopians thought, "Kids should eat better." So the first thing they did was change the law so that schools could only sell certain items, and had to make certain others available. "Kids aren't eating enough fruits and vegetables", they say, so they require schools to provide more fruits and vegetables in school lunches. "The kids aren't eating the fruits and vegetables we make available", they say, so then they require the food to be served to children.
What happens when the children don't want to eat the food that's served to them?
A Florida school district is considering a plan to install surveillance cameras on cafeteria trash cans to monitor what kids are throwing away – after they discovered that students were tossing out their federally-mandated fruit and vegetables.Is this really how we want our schools to be?
The Lake County School Board said more than $75,000 worth of vegetables have been thrown in the garbage. The veggies and fresh fruit are party of the Obama administration’s policy to force schools to provide healthy produce in lunch rooms.
See, with conservatism, the worst thing that happens is that government leaves you alone as long as you aren't messing with anyone else. The liberal alternative to that is that you are a toy of the government and must do whatever you're told.
Which style of government do you think is more fitting to humans?
