Dominating and Bullying

Government officials, who purport to know what is good for us better than we do, are rarely content simply to advise us of this superior knowledge and recommend that we act in its light. Instead they nearly always order us to act or to refrain from acting as they think best and threaten us with violent retribution if we fail to conform. This is not the way of people who care about us, but the way of people who relish dominating and bullying us.
