"As in the modern practice of civil disobedience, which might break the law in order to raise deeper issues of its morality and purpose, so Jesus, just before 'crossing the line,' issues a challenge to his audience. Pitting his mission of compassion and justice to the poor against the imperatives of the dominant order, Jesus calls the entire ideological edifice of the law to account."    - Ched Myers ; Binding the Strong Man: a political reading of Mark's story of Jesus

"You understand what I'm saying? We knew we couldn't make it illegal to be either against the war or black, but by getting the public to associate the hippies with marijuana and blacks with heroin. And then criminalizing both heavily, we could disrupt those communities. We could arrest their leaders, raid their homes, break up their meetings, and vilify them night after night on the evening news. Did we know we were lying about the drugs? Of course we did."    - John Ehrlichman; Watergate co-conspirator and top Nixon advisor ; Legalize It All: How to win the war on drugs; Dan Baum; Harper’s Magazine
