Louis Brandeis – New rights and common law

Share this quote:
Louis BrandeisPolitical, social, and economic changes entail the recognition of new rights, and the common law, in its eternal youth, grows to meet the demands of society . . .Now the right to life has come to mean the right to enjoy life, — the right to be let alone; the right to liberty secures the exercise of extensive civil privileges; and the term ‘‘property” has grown to comprise every form of possession — intangible, as well as tangible.

Louis Brandeis   (1856-1941)
