"'Balanced' is a code for 'denied':
a right to free speech that must be 'balanced'
against so exhaustive a list of other supposed
values means a right that can be exercised
only when those in power judge that the
speech in question is innocuous to them."
(1931- 2013) Jewish-American] philosopher, professor, scholar of United States constitutional law and jurisprudence
