“[I]t is true that [the provisions of the Bill of Rights] were designed to meet ancient evils. But they are the same kind of human evils that have emerged from century to century whenever excessive power is sought by the few at the expense of the many.”

– Justice Hugo L. Black

(1886-1971) US Supreme Court Justice
