A Quote by Carl L. Becker on abuse, advertising, laws, lies, practicality, privacy, profit, questions, speech, and time

No one can deny that much of our modern advertising is essentially dishonest; and it can be maintained that to lie freely and all the time for private profit is not to abuse the right of free speech, whether it is a violation of the law or not. But again the practical question is, how much lying for private profit is to be permitted by law?
