Ledeen: Tocqueville forecast ‘millions of tiny regulations that erode freedom’ [VIDEO]

Foreign policy scholar Michael Ledeen warned that even small regulations on tobacco and guns slowly and quietly erode the freedoms granted American citizens in the nation’s founding documents.

“It’s exactly what Tocqueville forecast, exactly the way he forecast it,” Ledeen said. “Millions of tiny little regulations, and we’re not going to notice them when they come in one-by-one. We’re even going to welcome them, and then one day we’re going to wake and find that we’re all tied down, we can’t move at all.”

Look for the full interview with Ledeen Monday.
