No, I don’t know who said it, but I’d bet it was a left-leaning politician. Notice how it puts all the blame for increasing external attempts at “control” by governments on (a sweeping generalization, btw) “individuals’ lack of internal control”?

It is someone from the far right. They are saying that more government rules and regulations make us immoral.
