  • It is incredible how as soon as a people become subject, it promptly falls into such complete forgetfulness of its freedom that it can hardly be roused to the point of regaining it, obeying so easily and willingly that one is led to say that this people has not so much lost its liberty as won its enslavement.


Charles-Louis De Secondat

Justice Willian O. Douglas

  • The Constitution is not neutral. It was designed to take the government off the backs of people.
  • The right to be let alone is indeed the beginning of all freedom.
