Busybodies and interferers

Jordan J. Ballor has been reading The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe to his son. He thought Lewis' description of Narnia's government under the Pevensies more than just a "they lived happily ever after" ending:
...[T]hey made good laws and kept the peace and saved good trees from being unnecessarily cut down, and liberated young dwarfs and young satyrs from being sent to school, and generally stopped busybodies and interferers and encouraged ordinary people who wanted to live and let live.
