A constitution is framed for ages to come, and is designed to approach immortality as nearly as human institutions can approach it.

John Marshall

The one thing we know about torture is that it was never designed in the first place to get at the actual truth of anything; it was designed in the darkest days of human history to produce false confessions in order to annihilate political and religious dissidents. And that is how it always works: it gets confessions regardless of their accuracy.

Andrew Sullivan

The division of the world population according to culture or religion produce a second approach would call 'solitary' human identity, an approach that considers human beings States only a very specific group. (Prologue: p. VIII)

Amartya Sen

He was beginning to feel the rush now. This wasn't a game, and it was clearly designed by a well-funded and technologically capable person. He had always sought the edge—and this was it.

This was it.

Daniel Suarez

The presidency is presumed to be the embodiment of Rousseau’s general will, with far more power than any monarch or head of state in pre-modern societies. The US presidency is the apex of the world’s biggest and most powerful government and of the most expansive empire in world history. As such, the presidency represents the opposite of freedom. It is what stands between us and our goal of restoring our ancient rights.
