"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."
Beauharnais v.Illinois, 342 U.S. 250, 287 (1952)
