UK Liberty

quote

Posted in Uncategorized by ukliberty on April 11, 2007

On looking for something on copyright law I came across this on civil liberties:

It is still in the lap of the gods whether a society can succeed which is based on ‘civil liberties and human rights’ conceived as I have tried to describe them; but of one thing at least we may be sure: the alternatives that have so far appeared have been immeasurably worse.

– Judge Billings Learned Hand, “A Fanfare for Prometheus”, 1955
