Quote of the day, Feb. 22

Justice Robert H. Jackson, in West Virginia State Board of Education v. Barnette (1943)

“If there is any fixed star in our constitutional constellation, it is that no official, high or petty, can prescribe what shall be orthodox in politics, nationalism, religion, or force citizens to confess by word or act their faith therein.”
