Ayn Rand was was soooooooo right when she stated:
“There’s no way to rule innocent men. The only power government has is the power to crack down on criminals. Well, when there aren’t enough criminals, one makes them. One declares so many things to be a crime that it becomes impossible for men to live without breaking laws.”
If this quote is too abstract and you don’t quite get where she is aiming, think: Drug Laws, Traffic Laws, Tax Laws, Prostitution, Dog Fighting, Lying to the Police, Aiding fugitive slaves, Bigotry, etc.
