"The law of liberty tends to abolish the reign of race over race, of faith over faith, of class over class. It is not the realisation of a political ideal: it is the discharge of a moral obligation."
John Emerich Edward Dalberg-Acton, 1st Baron Acton - (1834-1902)
English historian who served as Regius Professor of Modern History at Cambridge (1895-1902)
