Abstract

This article presents a summary of recent collaborative efforts to understand and respond to nanny state rhetoric. Instead of summarily rejecting the libertarian critique of paternalism, public health advocates must develop a forceful response that exposes its weak legal basis and reframes the debate in terms of democratic collective action.
