The Nanny state

Nanny state is a term of British origin that conveys a view that a government or its policies are overprotective or interfering unduly with personal choice. The term “nanny state” likens government to the role that a nanny has in child rearing. An early usage of the term comes from Conservative British MP Iain Macleod who referred to “what I like to call the nanny state”United State
Although the term is undefined in the Merriam-Webster dictionary, it has entered use in the United States over the past decade by some political commentators. For example, in 2006 Dean Baker of the Center for Economic and Policy Research think tank used the term to describe conservative policies that protect the income of the rich.
Conversely, the term is also used in an at-large sense against the legislative tendencies of contemporary liberal political ideology, with examples such as progressive banishment of tobacco smoking and the enactment of mandatory bicycle helmet laws.
David Harsanyi used the term to describe food labeling regulations, the legal drinking age and socially conservative government policies.[ Another example of criticism was the response[13] to New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s May 2012 proposal to restrict the sale of soft drinks in venues, restaurants and sidewalk carts to 16 ounce
