We have no constituency.  We serve no minority.  We serve only the public interest as we see it, guided only by the Constitution and our own conscience.

A republic is not an easy form of government to live under, and when the responsibility of citizenship is evaded, democracy decays and authoritarianism takes over.

Our Bill of Rights, the most precious part of our legal heritage, is under subtle and pervasive attacks…  In the struggle between our world and Communism, the temptation to imitate totalitarian security methods must be resisted day by day…  When the rights of any individual or group are chipped away, the freedom of all erodes.

We are now at the point where we must decide whether we are to honour the concept of a plural society which gains strength through diversity, or whether we are to have bitter fragmentation that will result in perpetual tension and strife.

I’m very pleased with each advancing year.  It stems back to when I was forty.  I was a bit upset about reaching that milestone, but an older friend consoled me.  ‘Don’t complain about growing old – many, many people do not have that privilege.

Today, as always, the people, no less than the courts, must remain vigilant to preserve the principals of our Bill of Rights, lest in our desire to be secure we lose our ability to be free.

Churchmen are quick to defend religious freedom;  lawyers were never so universally aroused as by President Roosevelt’s Court bill;  newspapers are most alert to civil liberties when there is a hint of press censorship in the air.  And educators become perturbed at every effort to curb academic freedom.  But too seldom do all of these become militant when ostensibly the rights of only one group are threatened.  They do not always react to the truism that when the rights of any individual or group are chipped away, the freedom of all erodes.

To summarize:  Americans have one of the greatest legal systems, but not a monopoly of the sense of justice, which is universal;  nor have we a permanent copyright on the means of securing justice, for it is the spirit and not the form of law that keeps justice alive.
