Publicity is a noble, beneficent, and universal right.
You have no sort of right to suppose such things," said Lebedeff's nephew in a tone of authority.
SOCRATES: And a person who had a right opinion about the way, but had never been and did not know, might be a good guide also, might he not?

There is also a doubt concerning the pretensions of all those who claim the honours of government: for those who found them either on fortune or family have nothing which they can justly say in their defence; since it is evident upon their principle, that if any one person can be found richer than all the rest, the right of governing all these will be justly vested in this one person.
