…infringements of personal liberty…

From the 1940 Supreme Court case Minnersville School District v. Gobitis

History teaches us that there have been but few infringements of personal liberty by the state which have not been justified, as they are here, in the name of righteousness and the public good, and few which have not been directed, as they are now, at politically helpless minorities. – Justice Harlan Fiske Stone
