Every oppressive law ever passed had at its base someone's notion of "for your own good" attached to it.

People have actually starved and froze to death in tiny hovels after being prevented from working self-employed at jobs they supposed they could do from their own kitchen tables and sewing machines because a bureaucrat supposed they were helping by shutting them down "for their own good".

One thing for sure; it's for somebodies own good.

It happens every day in every city in every land.

You can call it what you want, I call it facism.

It just gets noticed a bit when it happens in the street.
