"Procedure is the bone structure of a democratic society. Our scheme of law affords great latitude for dissent and opposition. It compels wide tolerance not only for their expression but also for the organization of people and forces to bring about the acceptance of the dissenter’s claim.... We have alternatives to violence."

Abe Fortas
(1910-1982) U. S. Supreme Court Justice
Concerning Dissent and Civil Disobedience, 1968
