Lawless are they that make their wills their law.
Rights are not a matter of numbers - and there can be no such thing, in law or in morality, as actions forbidden to an individual, but permitted to a mob.
There is no greater tyranny than that which is perpetrated under the shield of the law and in the name of justice.
Charles de Secondat

C. S. Lewis
