The great George Will recently wrote a column counseling calm when it comes to the myriad nanny-state intrusions the left has been visiting on Americans:
Climate alarmism validates the progressive impulse to micromanage others’ lives — their light bulbs, shower heads, toilets, appliances, automobiles, etc. Although this is a nuisance, it distracts liberals from more serious mischief.
All true, as far as it goes. The time liberals spend attending to light bulbs, toilets and shower heads is time they don’t have to . . . “reform” the health care system.
