As stated prior, they believe the ends justifies the means. They really only believe in freedom as it fits their needs. Your freedom, however, is a threat because they know their half-baked thoughts won't win in the arena of ideas. Rather than an indication to them that maybe they should reconsider what they "know"; they FEEL that they should help you poor little ignorant fools along by MAKING your decisions for you. Ya know, so you get it right.
