Quote from Robert F. Kennedy,

"At the heart of western freedom and democracy
is the belief that the individual man... is the touchstone of value,
and all society, groups, the state, exist for his benefit.
Therefore the enlargement of liberty for individual human beings
must be the supreme goal and abiding practice of any western society."
