ABSTRACT
The article reflects on civil liberties in the U.S. Bill of Rights. It asserts that the exercise of any right guaranteed by the Constitution carries with it serious responsibilities. It cites that the civil power may impose reasonable limitations upon the exercise of rights, but not to the point of damaging the rights in question. It states that the civil power must regulate the use of property, or take it for public purposes, with compensation, even against the will of the owner, or limit the amount of property which an owner may leave to his heirs.
