"But our society -- unlike most in the world -- presupposes that freedom and liberty are in a frame of reference that makes the individual, not government, the keeper of his tastes, beliefs, and ideas; that is the philosophy of the First Amendment; and it is this article of faith that sets us apart from most nations in the world."

William O. Douglas
(1898-1980), U. S. Supreme Court Justice
dissenting, Paris Adult Theatre I v. Slaton
