Michael Bloomberg On The Boston Bombing: We Have To Change How We Interpret The Constitution

New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg is exactly the kind of man C.S. Lewis was referring to when he wrote, “Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron’s cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience.”

Bloomberg is a control freak with a billion dollar bank account who feels entitled to control every aspect of people’s lives “for their own good.” Whether it’s what they eat, the size of the soda they drink or whether they’re allowed to have a gun, Bloomberg feels it’s his right to tell everyone else how to live their lives.

Now, Bloomberg wants to use the Boston Bombings as an excuse to run roughshod over the Constitution.

“The people who are worried about privacy have a legitimate worry. But we live in a complex world where you’re going to have to have a level of security greater than you did back in the olden days, if you will. And our laws and our interpretation of the Constitution, I think, have to change.”

Bloomberg continued, “Look, we live in a very dangerous world. We know there are people who want to take away our freedoms. New Yorkers probably know that as much if not more than anybody else after the terrible tragedy of 9/11.”

Bloomberg is right about one thing: There certainly are “people who want to take away our freedoms.”

He’s one of them.
