    Oh... You're making fun of over-engineered bureaucracy, aren't you? Is that what you meant by "nanny state"? I never quite got that reference.

    For the record, by "nanny state" you mean "big government," correct?

    Nanny State just seems to cover a broader aspect of the whole thing then the term Big Government since that only seems to be more or less economically motivated.

    Nanny State

    Big Government
    Fe/Fi 36.9/37.7
    Ne/Ni 34.9/25.8
    Se/Si 25.7/19.5
    Te/Ti 28.4/31.9
    Type: 2w% sx/sp/so

    I don't want it, I just need it, to breathe, to feel, to know I'm alive.

    Never take life to seriously.. No one gets out alive in the end anyway.
