You really don't grasp how your argument is the template of every statist argument demanding compliance to regulations based on the "good of society". "How is eating anything you wish a good thing?

For that reason, society confers benefits from the health of the individual and thus can demand mandatory diet and exercise."

Also you can't eat that steak or ice cream because it is bad for you. We, the State, have decided that this tasteless gruel is suitable and that is what you will eat. You really want to go there?
Democrats won big last week. So government will continue to grow. Individual freedom will yield.

At least some people with records of supporting liberty were elected: Sen. Jeff Flake in Arizona and U.S. Reps. Justin Amash and Kerry Bentivolio in Michigan and Thomas Massie in Kentucky.

Also, Washington and Colorado voted to allow any adult to use marijuana. (But users beware. Your newfound freedom may be short-lived thanks to that extraordinary human being in the White House -- you know, the one who smoked pot when he was in school. Despite promising that he wouldn't, he has cracked down on pot...
