Social scientist Charles Murray shows us why we can no longer hope to roll back the power of the federal government through the normal political process. Murray describes how civil disobedience backstopped by legal defense funds can make large portions of the 180,000-page Federal Code of Regulations unenforceable, through a targeted program that identifies regulations that arbitrarily and capriciously tell us what to do.
