Retro Quote – Robert H. Jackson

“The very purpose of the First Amendment is to foreclose public authority from assuming a guardianship of the public mind through regulating the press, speech and religion. In this field, every person must be his own watchman for truth, because the forefathers did not trust any government to separate the true from the false for us.”

– U.S. Supreme Court Justice Robert H. Jackson, 1945
