The Daily Telegraph featured the main findings of the 2023 Nanny State Index and provided a comprehensive breakdown of Britain’s extensive range of paternalistic measures. The article compared Britain’s regulations in lifestyle matters to those of other European countries. It also highlighted EPICENTER’s findings, which suggest that such measures do not contribute to healthier and longer-living societies. For the complete article, you can read it here.
