Denmark Repeals Its "Fat Tax" for the Wrong Reasons
This article from Denmark is typical of one that can be found daily illustrating the many ways that governments everywhere intervene into our lives. It is interesting that there is no mention in the article about personal freedom. The "fat tax" will be repealed (only to be replaced by something else) due to the complaints of producers in Denmark. The personal freedom of Danes to consume the foods they prefer is never discussed and, apparently, was never considered by Denmark's legislative elite.
