I was responding only to your thoughts above not to the label. I used the
label because I thought it gets down to the core of the point you are
making which is that people need to step up and accept responsibility for
their actions. I'm not trying to set any trap, just stimulate some debate
on what I believe to be the larger issue here. I am honestly interested in
YOUR answer to the question: do you believe in any laws that might be put
in place for "your own good"?

I am more than happy to get down and dirty on this issue, I just happen to
like approaching it from a top-down rather than a bottom-up.
