"The men who crafted the constitution must be doing wheelies in their graves. To the eighteenth-century mind in the Age of Reason, an American Government obsessed with controlling every aspect of individual existence, with its hands in every pocket up to its national armpits, would be a greater source of terror than the atom bomb. Had they known, the Bill of Rights would not have ended with ten amendments. It would be a perpetual work in progress with periodic political lynchings made part of the fabric of government."
