"No free people can lose their liberties
while they are jealous of liberty.
But the liberties of the freest people are in danger
when they set up symbols of liberty as fetishes,
worshipping the symbol instead of the principle it represents."
(1811-1884) American abolitionist, advocate for Native Americans, orator, lawyer
Liberty and the Great Libertarians (C. Spradling)
