The Law and Freedom – “Make Gentle The Life of This World: The Vision of Robert F. Kennedy” – Maxwell Taylor Kennedy

January 26th, 2012 · No Comments · Human Rights, The Law

President Kennedy then went on to point out that “Law is the strongest link between man and freedom”.

I wonder in how many countries of the world people think of law as the “link between man and freedom.”

We know that in many, law is the instrument of tyranny, and people think of law as little more than the will of the state, or the party – not of the people.

In a democratic society law is the form which free men give to justice. The glory of justice and the majesty of law are created not just by the Constitution – not by the Courts – nor by the officers of the law – nor by the lawyers – but by the men and women who constitute our society – who are the protectors of the law as they are themselves protected by the law.
