Individual as unalienable . . .

  • “The whole of that Bill [of Rights] is a declaration of the right of the people at large or considered as individuals… [I]t establishes some rights of the individual as unalienable and which consequently, no majority has a right to deprive them of.” ~Albert Gallatin, letter to Alexander Addison, 1789
