EP 25 - (feat. Christopher Snowdon) See EU Later / Nanny State

After a decent catch up on Britain finally leaving the EU, I talk Nanny State with the one & only Christopher Snowdon. We talk vaping, smoking, drinking, gambling, taking drugs - all the good stuff really. In the letters we talk about the CEO who wanted to ban men talking about football. There's also the crucial question of which Labour Leadership candidate would be capable of putting up a tent.

Is There Any Justification for Paternalistic Policies? (with Christopher Snowdon)

Play
Read more

Drinking alcohol and smoking cigarettes are legal activities, but politicians use the law in order to discourage people from doing these things that may seen as poor for your health. This is inconsistent with John Stuart Mill’s famous principle that people should be free in the sense that they should be able to do whatever they like as long as they are not harming others.

What is paternalism? Should we take care of those who do not know any better for themselves? Are there different types of paternalism? What is considered coercion? Should the government enforce vaccinations for the purpose of collective action? Should the government worry about public health?

CliffCentral.com — This episode of the show plays host to Institute of Economic Affairs' director of lifestyle economics, columnist and author Christopher Snowdon. Chris discusses many of the ideas expressed in his new book 'Killjoys', which looks at the paternalistic policies of governments in an attempt to save people from themselves. The discussion takes a hard look at the NHS, the war on schools to ban fast food, and the authoritarian attempts to control all the vices of the working class. Jonathan delves into the zealotry and colossal waste of funding that is public health, while Roman explores the evolving status of regulation around e-cigarettes. The conversation ultimately makes its way to the status of Brexit, Donald Trump's silly tweets, and show favourite Jacob Rees-Mogg.
