The Nanny State 2008

When people say “It’s a free country,” I always ask where they live, because it sure isn’t the US.

I’m old enough to remember when the United States was a fairly free country, but these days just keeping track of all the assaults on our freedoms and civil rights is a full time job. And those who keep track of the major assaults probably miss the hundreds of minor ones enacted every year.

Reason Magazine just did this short video about various nanny state rules that have been enacted in the past year. Twenty years ago this would have been considered a spoof. Today it’s a documentary.
