Default Re: Phil Rudd fined

The problem is that it is not the business of the government to look after people's individual health. Public order yes, but to a significant degree individual choice is what dictates health.
The government cannot dictate individual choice without resorting to tyranny, therefore this does not work. The fact that it may harm your own health is no business of the government's. Even if they are putting money into your healthcare, if you live less long you will use less resources.
