Don't know the exact quote, but in “Atlas Shrugged” there is a discussion about making so many laws that almost nobody can escape being a law breaker. And that is how the government will control the populace.

“There’s no way to rule innocent men. The only power government has is the power to crack down on criminals. When there aren’t enough criminals, one makes them. One declares so many things to be a crime that it becomes impossible for men to live without breaking laws.”
