Abstract:

Should governments save people from themselves? Do governments have the right to influence citizens' behaviour related to smoking tobacco, eating too much, not saving enough, drinking alcohol, or taking marijuana - or does this create a nanny state, leading to infantilization, demotivation, and breaches in individual autonomy? Looking at examples from both sides of the Atlantic and around the world, 'Government Paternalism' examines the justifications for, and the prevalence of, government involvement and considers when intervention might or might not be acceptable.
