The Government Wants You to Move

You are too old to stay in a 3 bedroom house. Over-60 bedroom blockers 'should be taxed out of their homes' | Mail Online OK, so it is only a proposal and only in the UK. So far. But can you really imagine that the government that wants to control everything you do, own, eat, and think, doesn't also want to control where and how you live?
Older people should be taxed out of their family homes to free up space for younger generations, says a report backed by Labour.

It argues that 'empty nesters' in their 60s are taking up too much room and should be 'encouraged' by a new 'land tax' to downsize to smaller homes.
This is to 'promote fairness between generations.' (Does it need to be stated that this is being proposed by the Left side of British politics? Didn't think so.)

Is there any part of my life that the government doesn't want to control? Didn't think so.

OK, I get that it's only a proposal, and it's in the UK, but...

everyday I see things happening that I never in my wildest nightmares would have thought were possible. Like TSA pat downs at football games are bad enough, but stopping cars on the highway to pat travelers down?

1984 wasn't supposed to be a documentary.
