Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

Perhaps we should refer to the other side as "Pro-control"

Any idiot can face a crisis - it's day to day living that wears you out.

"Control" is too nebulous.

In that context, and used by a friend, it makes perfect sense.

However, it carries the baggage that "control" can also be regarded as a good and necessary thing applied to prevent harm.

(Think street violence and carbon emissions.)

It would be unwise to gift them that particular subliminal association.
