Greetings, fellow scientific subjects

No surprise, here. Leftists have always considered society to be a giant laboratory: “President Obama Orders Behavioral Experiments On American Public”.
The initiative draws on research from University of Chicago economist Richard Thaler and Harvard law school professor Cass Sunstein, who was also dubbed Obama’s regulatory czar. The two behavioral scientists argued in their 2008 book “Nudge” that government policies can be designed in a way that “nudges” citizens towards certain behaviors and choices.

The desired choices almost always advance the goals of the federal government…
Just remember: this is how your government sees you.

Me! Me! Me! Please include me in this experiment!

I'm just an average guy, and I'd be a perfect subject for your "nudge". I promise.

No, really. Your results would be...well...enlightening.

I hate all this soft authoritarianism. It's like trying to fight mush.

Alinsky, Khrushchev, and Marx are smiling.

This sounds like the hogwash that was slopped out by the representative from our town's electric company at the city council meeting. One of the proposals is to impose a tariff on people who are planning to install solar or wind. The concern wasn't for private property rights, but rather, the town's electric revenues.
