I think its okay for government to enforce certain moral standards. like do not fuck kids or rape women or kill random people and such. or let a company rape and kill nature and fuck workers and use child labour.
how many guns and knives you have a a little touchy subject but other than that the government should really not bother with what you do or what you have in your home of drugs or alcohol or knives or whatever.
government is also only useful if besides enforcing certain rights for the individual to freedom not be assaulted and such and freedom to do things then government also have to step in and make sure you always got decent living standards if you get sick or something happens.
if government is just telling you to work hard. pay tax. and telling you not to smoke or drink or watch television and get fat or whatever and not even give something in return , like welfare its just taking away freedom not giving in any way.
governments should support the people. not try raise it as little children to make them do what they want. and they are doing this with all the bans and pictures and whatnot. we are adults and should be able to decide for ourself.
