"Corporations have been enthroned .... An era of corruption in high places will follow and the money power will endeavor to prolong its reign by working on the prejudices of the people... until wealth is aggregated in a few hands ... and the Republic is destroyed." -- Abraham Lincoln, 1861-1865

"At the heart of first amendment is the recognition of the fundamental importance of free flow of the ideas. Freedom to speak one's mind is not only an aspect of individuals liberty but essential to the quest for truth and vitality of society as a whole. In the world of public debate about public affairs many things are done with motives that are less than admirable and nonetheless are protected by first amendment." Supreme Court in Larry Flynt vs. Jerry Falwell

"There may be times when we are powerless to prevent injustice, but there must never be a time when we fail to protest." Elie Wiesel
