Against autonomy :justifying coercive paternalism

Rejecting the idea of autonomy as inviolable, the author argues that we are so often irrational in making our decisions that our autonomous choices often undercut the achievement of our own goals and that in many cases it would advance our goals more effectively if government were to prevent us from acting in accordance with our decisions.
