Some of those crazy Brits want to ban Happiness! Well, not exaclty, but they want to ban happy-hour.  It's "part of a wide-ranging plan to reduce alcohol-related disorder." Ahh, the war against disorder! Can we group that war with the war against drugs, since it, too, will never end (and besides, they are both much too politically useful to have active)?
Really, shouldn't all such attempts to control people's behavior that isn't harming anyone else be seen as what they are - authoritarianism, even if in the guise "doing what's good for us?"
And don't leave the US out of the loop - we can ban (non-government approved and possibly harmful) happiness here, too! (1 example)
