"We recognize the force of the argument that the effects of war under modern conditions may be felt in the economy for years and years, and that if the war power can be used in days of peace to treat all the wounds which war inflicts on our society, it may not only swallow up all other powers of Congress but largely obliterate the Ninth and the Tenth Amendments as well."

Justice William O. Douglas
(1898-1980), U. S. Supreme Court Justice
delivering the opinion of the Supreme Court, Woods v. Cloyd W. Miller Co., 333 U.S. 138, 143-144 (1948).
