I recently appeared on the Wasatch Report with Suzanne Sherman to talk about the real-world impacts of government overreach, particularly the drug war and the surveillance state. 

Before we started the show, Suzanne said to me, “Did you ever imagine the days of general warrants would be the good old days?” She’s right. Government surveillance has become so pervasive that it makes the British customs agents with their “search for anything anywhere” warrants look like.

Before we dug into the issue of surveillance, we talked a little bit about how people have completely abandoned constitutional principles and the utter failure of letting the government determine the extent of its own power.

From there, we talked about my experience fighting surveillance in my hometown of Lexington, Kentucky, and the ensuing lawsuit against me. That led to a discussion of “geofence warrants” and TSA-style scanners that police in Utah are getting that will enable them to “search” everybody in a given public area.

We also touched on the human toll of the war on drugs.
