Chose II

"The framers of the constitution knew human nature as well as we do. They too had lived in dangerous days; they too knew the suffocating influence of orthodoxy and standardized thought. They weighed the compulsions for restrained speech and thought against the abuses of liberty. They chose liberty."
--William O. Douglas,
[Beauharnais v.Illinois, 342 U.S. 250, 287 (1952) (dissenting)]
