... Die by the Group

Quote of the evening:
In the eyes of the law the Jews do not exist as a group. They may be murdered as a group, but they may not complain about it as a group. They can be defamed as a sinister gathering of the Elders of Zion, or as ritual murderers, but there is no effective remedy against their defamation as a group.
Law and Social Action: Selected Essays of Alexander H. Pekelis 188 (Milton R. Konvitz ed., 1950).

The law, I should add, is not the only entity whose eyes have a problem.
