“…pour jouir de la liberté, il faut que chacun puisse dire ce qu’il pense; et que, pour la conserver, il faut encore que chacun puisse dire ce qu’il pense, un citoyen, dans cet État, dirait et écrirait tout ce que les lois ne lui ont pas défendu expressément de dire ou d’écrire.“
Montesquieu, Charles de. De L’Espirit des Lois. Geneva: Barillot et Fils, 1748. Book XIX, Chapter 27
