LOUIS D. BRANDEIS
American judge and jurist
(1856 - 1941)

Fear of serious injury cannot alone justify suppression of free speech and assembly. Men feared witches and burnt women. It is the function of speech to free men from the bondage of irrational fears.
      - in the case of Whitney v. California, 274 U.S. 357, 376 (1927)
        [Speech]

Our government is the potent, the omnipresent teacher. For good or for ill, it teaches the whole people by its example. Crime is contagious. If the government becomes a lawbreaker, it breeds contempt for law; it invites every man to become a law unto himself; it invites anarchy.
      - part of his dissent in the case of Olmstead v. United States, 277 U.S. 438, 485 (1928)
        [Anarchy : Government : Law]

The makers of our Constitution undertook to secure conditions favorable to the pursuit of happiness. . . . They conferred, as against the government, the right to be let alone--the most comprehensive of rights and the right most valued by civilized men.
      - part of his dissent in the case of Olmstead v. United States, 277 U.S. 438, 478 (1928)
        [Constitution : Privacy : Rights]
