    You've got it right, Applesauce. America is fast turning into a police state, with more people imprisoned (both as a percentage and actual numbers) than any other country. Privatized for-profit prisons makes it important to keep the prisons full. Best way to do that is to make everything illegal, and enforce selectively (put mostly poorer folks in jail, the rich are above the law). Having laws so vague that nobody can comply helps to keep the prison-industrial complex in business.
