“A term that is frequently heard these days is: ‘Un-American.’ How can you and I be sure that it should not at times be applied to us—that we ourselves are really thinking in the American way, living in the American way, actually being American in our personal lives?
“The answer to that question is not as simple as it would appear to be. … I submit that one way by which we can be sure that we are thinking American is from time to time to take ‘Little Journeys to the Constitution,’ there to familiarize ourselves anew with the basic doctrine and the basic landmarks of the American heritage.”
