Overcriminalization – One Nation Under Arrest

“Show me the man and I’ll find his crime” was a tenet of Stalin’s Soviet Union, but with over 55 new Federal crimes created every year, how close are we getting to it being true here in the United States? In this podcast, Brian Walsh, author of One Nation Under Arrest and chair of the Heritage Foundation’s Overcriminalization Workgroup, joins Michael Ostrolenk to discuss this question.  Listen and learn what Heritage is doing to educate our legislators that the consequence of passing broad and overly vague laws is, as Ayn Rand warned in Atlas Shurgged, “it becomes impossible for men to live without breaking them.”
