Civil Liberties and the Trade Union, 50 Yale Law Journal 621 (1941)
WE usually think of the civil liberties problem, I suppose, as one of
limiting the area within which the state may bring its power to bear
against the individual. We do not ordinarily think of it as a matter of
protecting one private person from the power of another. But it can
have this aspect, too. The importance of this side of it was as well put
as it ever has been by Governor Shunk of Pennsylvania ninety-five years
ago. Asked by the General Assembly of the state to approve a bill to
incorporate the North Branch Railroad and Coal Company, he refused.
