Share New Media Lunch: Reining in the Nanny State

Event Details

Nanny state policies have been on the rise at all levels of government in the attempt to regulate "vices" such as consuming sugary soft drinks, fast foods, and alcoholic beverages. Join us Wednesday for a discussion of sin taxes, overprotective and interfering government policies, and the importance of bloggers and social media in rising up against them.
