Justice William O. Douglas Quote

“The privacy and dignity of our citizens [are] being whittled away by sometimes imperceptible steps. Taken individually, each step may be of little consequence. But when viewed as a whole, there begins to emerge a society quite unlike any we have seen -- a society in which government may intrude into the secret regions of a [person’s] life.”

Ratings and Comments

Mike, Norwalk

The statement is very true while the Supreme Court is goose stepping to a tyrannical drum.

Dick, Fort Worth

1984 is almost here. The constant war part and total control of mainstream media are both solid. Give our corporations a few more years and all will be accomplished.

E Archer, NYC

5 stars for being true.
