…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
