When Everything Is a Crime: Harvey Silverglate on the Overregulation of Ordinary Life

"That's what causes change: the people in power begin to get hurt by their own system."

Nick Gillespie & Todd Krainin | June 15, 2016

Few people understand the price of overregulation like Harvey Silverglate. Over his long career as an attorney and journalist, Silverglate has seen a rising bureaucratic class enact hundreds of thousands of federal regulations and vaguely-worded statutes. The result has been the criminalization of everyday life. From university campuses to corporate boardrooms, ever more citizens are facing severe punishments for behavior that was once considered harmless.

Silverglate himself has been repeatedly pursued by the FBI, only to see the investigations come to nothing.
