Quote from Justice Louis D. Brandeis,

Fear of serious injury
cannot alone justify suppression
of free speech and assembly.
Men feared witches
and burned women.
It is the function of speech
to free men from the bondage
of irrational fears.


Justice Louis D. Brandeis (more quotes by Justice Louis D. Brandeis or books by/about Justice Louis D. Brandeis)

(1856-1941) US Supreme Court Justice
