Sans la liberté, la loi se transforme en oppression

"Sans la liberté, la loi perd sa nature et son nom, et se transforme en oppression.
Sans la loi, la liberté aussi perd sa nature et son nom, et se transforme en débauche."

(vers 1790)
"Without liberty, law loses its nature and its name, and becomes oppression.            
Without law, liberty also loses its nature and its name, and becomes licentiousness."
-- James Wilson (Of the Study of the Law in the United States, Circa 1790)
