Quote of the day - Justice Janice Rogers Brown

We are heirs to a mind-numbing bureaucracy; subject to a level of legalization that cannot avoid being arbitrary, capricious, and discriminatory. What other outcome is possible in a society in which no adult can wake up, go about their business, and return to their homes without breaking several laws? There are of course many reasons for our present difficulties, but some of our troubles can be laid at the feet of that most innocuous branch – the judiciary…From the 1960’s onward, we have witnessed the rise of the judge militant.

Justice Janice Rogers Brown
[Speech to California Lincoln Club Libertarian Law Council (Dec. 11, 1997)
