John Stuart Mill's classic essay "On Liberty" gives reasons why some people should not be taking over other people's decisions about their own lives. But Professor Cass Sunstein of Harvard has given reasons to the contrary. He cites research showing "that people make a lot of mistakes, and that those mistakes can prove extremely damaging."Quoting: train
Professor Sunstein is undoubtedly correct that "people make a lot of mistakes." Most of us can look back over our own lives and see many mistakes, including some that were very damaging.

Therefore, all life changing decisions should be turned over to the government since they are so much better qualified.
Yet we also can look back and see many mistakes made by governments, banks, pharma, media, etc.
They are humans as well prone to mistakes. human mistakes may harm a lot but large organizations mistakes might unleash wars, famine, terror, pollution... lol. They already are doing things that are not in our best interests.
Logic and ethics are the answer but we waste our lifespan hating, fearing, fighting and doing negative things.
I am not a shepherd but i wont be part of the sheeps anymore. May them achieve what they want.
