NRO clips this great video of actor Jeremy Irons who reveals that he is a “complete libertarian” and blasts New York City Mayor Bloomberg’s “nanny state” banning large sodas and smoking in public places.

“It’s the nanny state, it is terrible,” Irons explained, adding that there were other ways to discourage bad behavior.

“But laws, I think its terrible. It’s the tip of the iceberg because it’s an attitude,” Irons continued. “It’s the attitude where governors think, ‘We know what’s best for people, and they’re so stupid that they only won’t do it if we ban it.’”
