BBC NEWS | UK | Teen alcohol crackdown 'success'

The trouble with this "successful" campaign to crackdown on teens drinking alcohol is that it was carried out by agents of the state.

When parents, in large numbers, step back from their role of teaching, instructing, disciplining and, at times, restraining their children, and when they allow the state to take on that role, then we are all in big trouble.

When that happens, the state is no longer even a Big Brother but a Pushy Parent.

This is bad news for parents, for children and for society as a whole, whose freedoms become even more eroded by an all-embracing governmental bureaucracy.
