One of man's oldest exercises in moral philosophy; the search for a superior moral justification for minding everyone else's business

This is why UK voters rejected the Labour Party and its Nanny-State interference in their private lives:
"Frankly, we need a lot less of the passive tolerance of recent years..." Cameron said.

"A passively tolerant society says to its citizens: as long as you obey the law, we will leave you alone."
It sounds like hell.

one thing that one can rely on with the British Tories is that they will regularly reveal the essential arseholeness of their party in some speech or another.

I'm developing an intelligent crotch-recognition program that uses your webcam to evaluate the status of your "Barn Door" and sends you (or your designee) a Twitter update about it.

If your horse keeps running for more than four hours, call your physician.
