Nanny state or JR HIGH SCHOOL state?

People claim progressives want to create a “nanny state”, but it’s not that, & it’s not even a kindergarten state –it’s kind of a Junior High School State, because that’s what the nation tends to be like, if unregulated: adolescents, who know some things but who’re still learning, who will do mindless stuff (like cheating people, or polluting), as any kid will, and while you give them lots of freedom they also need some rules.

Adolescents don’t think about longterm consequences much. Neither do corporate polluters. They’re arrested adolescents. So we need regulations till they cease to be grown up adolescents, with adolescent selfishness and overblown sense of entitlement. Someday humanity may beĀ  mature enough for anarchism. Not yet.
