Here is another example of a government knowing what is better for people than the people know for themselves.
The City of Los Angeles has put a moratorium on new fast food places in southern LA. The government thinks those people are too stupid to decide what they should eat, so the benevolent government is going to help them.
Since the moratorium only applies to a certain part of town, are the residents in the rest of LA smart enough to eat the way the government thinks they should? Or does the government just not care about the rest of LA?
