"The privacy and dignity of our citizens [are] being whittled away
by sometimes imperceptible steps. Taken individually, each step may be
of little consequence. But when viewed as a whole, there begins
to emerge a society quite unlike any we have seen -- a society in which
government may intrude into the secret regions of a [person’s] life."
by:
Justice William O. Douglas
(1898-1980), U. S. Supreme Court Justice
