"In the whole history of law and order,
the biggest step was taken by primitive man when...
the tribe sat in a circle and allowed only one man to speak at a time.
An accused who is shouted down has no rights whatever."
by:
Curtis Bok
(1897-1962) Pennsylvania Supreme Court justice, philanthropist, writer, Quaker
