"Be not intimidated...
nor suffer yourselves to be wheedled out of your liberties
by any pretense of politeness, delicacy, or decency.
These, as they are often used, are but three different names
for hypocrisy, chicanery and cowardice."
(1735-1826) Founding Father, 2nd US President
A Dissertation on the Canon and Feudal Law, 1765
