Who would be your ‘Top Enemy of Freedom’ since 1968?

Who would call the top enemy of freedom since 1968? The list of potential candidates is unfortunately quite long if you think about it.

Beck Bloomberg saluteIn the 45th anniversary issue of the “Free Minds and Free Markets” libertarian-leaning magazine, Reason, they ranked their Top 45 Enemies of Freedom since the founding of the magazine.

The writers at Reason do make it clear, “these aren’t the worst human beings who bestrode the planet since 1968”, although there are some that could be considered as such.

They say, “What unites them [the top 45] is their active effort to control individuals rather than allow them free choice, to wield power recklessly rather than act on the recognition that the stuff inherently corrupts, and to popularize lies in a world in a world that’s desperate for the truth.”

Ranking number 1, ahead of despots like Idi Amin (2), murderers like Osama bin Laden (4) and Keynesian economists who push for endless government stimulus, Paul Krugman (23), is none other than the man that thinks he is saving America one soda at a time, NYC Mayor Michael Bloomberg.

Bloombergs war on trans fats, salt, cigarettes, sodas, guns and the Fourth Amendment are all pierces of the puzzle that enabled him to be ranked the Top Enemy of Freedom.

Others on the list include Dick Cheney (7), Dianne Feinstein (10), J. Edgar Hoover (15), Mao Tse-Tung (35) and Steven Seagal (45).
