"The priceless heritage of our society is the
unrestricted constitutional right of each member to think
as he will. Thought control is a copyright of totalitarianism,
and we have no claim to it."
by:
Justice Robert H. Jackson
(1892-1954), U. S. Supreme Court Justice

US Supreme Court, American Communications Association v. Douds, 339 U.S. 382, 442 (1950)

    All rights are inalienable and personal. The society of the here Justice is not my society. Justice Jackson's society was that of totalitarianism, making a lie of the rest of the comment.
