Safeguarding the Rights of the Accused
The more power government obtains, and the more crimes it proclaims, the
greater the risk that you might someday find yourself accused of violating
a long list of unknowable government crimes.
Today you may believe that everyone who is accused of a crime by the
government is probably guilty. Tomorrow that someone may be you. You will
want safeguards for your protection.
