And yet another one who has apparently never read Huxley. Stupid social engineering biatch. What the hell is wrong with these people. Is there nothing they will not tax? Oh yeah...they won't tax churches and non-profits. But another tax on the lower and middle classes is only because "we know best".

Don't you mean Orwell?
.
Anne McCaffery also had things like this in her first Doona book. Calorie counting was a big part of the book. And to a slight degree the next two books in that series.
.
So did Marion Zimmer Bradley had used this as a subject in her Darkover books. Especially those that had folks still on Terra.

There have been any number of fictional accounts of government run amok in their efforts to "do what's best" for the citizens. The attempts to tax foods that are perceived a bad have never worked and will never work. All they do is create yet another black market.
