Against Writs of Assistance February 1761 (edited) - James Otis (edited for modern usages)

This quote was added by bvw
The Slave trade is the most shocking violation of the law of nature, has a direct tendency to diminish liberty, and makes every dealer in it a tyrant, from the director of an African company to the local peddler. The colonists are by the law of nature free-born, as indeed all men are, white or black. It is a clear truth, that those who every day barter away other men's liberty will soon care little for their own.
