Jacob Sullum on Michael Bloomberg's Divine Mission to Take Away Our Freedom


Office of the Mayor

Last week Michael Bloomberg told The New York Times he had secured a spot in heaven through his efforts to restrict guns, soda, and cigarettes. If so, asks Jacob Sullum, "does that mean I am going to hell?" Sullum says he and the former New York City mayor do not agree about much, especially when it comes to Bloomberg's two biggest passions, both of which involve restricting people's freedom for no legitimate reason.
