“All men by nature are equal in that equal right that every man hath to his natural freedom, without being subjected to the will or authority of any other man; being all equal and independent, no one ought to harm another in his life, health, liberty or possessions.”
~ John Locke
Martin Luther King, Jr. born: January 15, 1929.
Is there equality before the law? At every stage of the judicial
process–facing the policeman, appearing in court, being freed
on bond, being sentenced by the judge–the poor person is
treated worse than the rich, the black treated worse than the
white, the politically or personally odd character is treated
worse than the orthodox.
— Howard Zinn
