Public Health versus Private Freedom?

From Project Syndicate.  Professor of Bioethics at Princeton University, Peter Singer, has an argument contrary to the Supreme Court: It’s entirely based on the idea that individuals are too stupid to be the “guardians” of their own interests due to the influence of manipulative corporations, so government must have the ability to manage our lives in order for us to make proper choices—presumably because our caring government isn’t manipulative.

Oh yes, free speech is such an old quaint notion…
