"The First and Fourteenth Amendments say that Congress and the States
shall make "no law" which abridges freedom of speech or of the press.
In order to sanction a system of censorship I would have to say that
"no law" does not mean what it says, that "no law" is qualified to mean
"some" laws. I cannot take this step."

William O. Douglas
(1898-1980), U. S. Supreme Court Justice
Superior Films v. Department of Education of the State of Ohio, 1954
