Venezuela, Government Knows Best

Have you noticed the competition between the current pols in the United States and Venezuela? If you are a statist that believes that the government knows best, and is obligated to assume (usurp) responsibility for running citizens private lives, so you don’t have to, then you might like the effort underway in Venezuela to ban no_bottlebottle feeding your baby. The only difference between them is that Venezuela doesn’t have a Constitution to ignore. That “charter of negative liberties” as Obama calls it.

To show they have compassion, they have an exception in the case of the death of the mother. But you know, their heart is in the right place. Can we legislate some love here?

Legislator Odalis Monzon said the proposal would “prohibit all types of baby bottles” as a way to improve children’s health.

We want to increase the love between mother and child because this has been lost as a result of these transnational companies selling formula.

Oh right. It’s those evil corporations. It’s activism of the kind to make Mayor Bloomberg and President Obama jealous.
