“The American Constitution was designed to direct, limit, and constrain the use of power in order to protect liberty. But as the founders knew, and as has become even more clear in modern times, liberty can be threatened by well-meaning people who seek only to do good. Justice Louis Brandeis put it well: ‘Experience should teach us to be most on our
guard to protect liberty when the government’s purposes are beneficent …. The greatest
dangers to liberty lurk in insidious encroachment by men of zeal, well-meaning but without understanding.’” (Cato Handbook for Congress, 2004)
