What is the worst tyranny

So says a commenter on a Forbes interview with billionaire busybody Tom Steyer:

So the leftwing billionaire wants to levy a “big tax” on the cost of getting to work and heating our homes for the growing millions of working poor and dwindling middle class. All for our own good, of course. Got it.

“Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercise for the good of its victim may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber barons cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated: but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience. ” C S LewisT
