They [the makers of the Constitution] conferred, as against
the Government, the right to be let alone -- the most comprehensive of rights and the right most valued by
civilized men. -- Justice Louis D. Brandeis dissenting, Olmstead et al. v. United States
277 U.S. 438, 478 (1928)

"The fact is that the average man's love of liberty is nine-tenths imaginary, exactly like his love of sense, justice and truth. He is not actually happy when free; he is uncomfortable, a bit alarmed, and intolerably lonely. Liberty is not a thing for the great masses of men. It is the exclusive possession of a small and disreputable minority, like knowledge, courage and honor. It takes a special sort of man to understand and enjoy liberty-- and he is usually an outlaw in democratic societies."
-- H.L. Mencken, Baltimore Evening Sun, Feb. 12, 1923
