"The Act of Congress which we are impugning before you
is communistic in its purposes and tendencies, and
is defended here upon principles as communistic, socialistic -
what shall I call them - populistic as ever have been addressed
to any political assembly in the world."
Joseph H. Choate
(1832-1917) attorney who successfully challenged the Income Tax Act of 1894
United States Supreme Court, Pollock v. Farmers Loan & Trust Co. (1898)
