Quote by C. S. Lewis on tyranny

A quote by C. S. Lewis on tyranny is the topic of this blog post.

“Of all tyrannies a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive.” C. S. Lewis

“I love this quote by C. S. Lewis as it succinctly describes the hidden tyranny of the modern nanny welfare state.  The phrase “I’m from the government and I’m here to help” takes on a whole new meaning once you truly understand this quote.  This quote is undeniably true as if someone sincerely believes that they are helping someone they will of course feel no pangs of conscience when their efforts fail as they were sincerely trying to help.  This kind of tyranny is generally more long-lived than the more brutal tyranny as it is much less likely to engender widespread resistance than brutal tyranny is.” Stan Burman
