 Louis D. Brandeis once said...

Our government is the potent, the omnipresent teacher. For good or for ill, it teaches the whole people by its example. Crime is contagious. If the government becomes a law-breaker, it breeds contempt for law; it invites every man to become a law unto himself; it invites anarchy.

In Law Quotes, by Louis D. Brandeis , Source: part of his dissent in the case "Olmstead v. United States", 277 U.S. 438, 485 (1928)
