"Rightful liberty is unobstructed action according to our will within
limits drawn around us by the equal rights of others. I do not add
'within the limits of the law,' because law is often but the tyrant's
will, and always so when it violates the rights of the individual."
-- Thomas Jefferson
(1743-1826), US Founding Father, drafted the Declaration of Independence, 3rd US President

"We are so concerned to flatter
 the majority that we lose sight
of how very often it is necessary,
  in order to preserve freedom
       for the minority,
   let alone for the individual,
  to face that majority down."
-- William F. Buckley, Jr.
(1925-2008) American author and journalist, founded 'National Review'

"Liberty requires restraints on popularly-elected leaders,
as well as from minorities, so that the individual is protected
from undue and arbitrary coercion by the state.
These restraints are provided by a plurality
of more or less equal and independent groups
which check and balance one another's power."
-- William Kornhauser
(1925-2004) Professor
