But the effect of her being on those around her was incalculably diffusive: for the growing good of the world is partly dependent on unhistoric acts; and that things are not so ill with you and me as they might have been, is half owing to the number who lived faithfully a hidden life, and rest in unvisited tombs.

When government officials invoke a risk of harm, he notes, "they are often trying to insulate themselves from criticism." He thinks that the "clear and present danger" test protects speech too much but "is incalculably preferable to what would emerge from open-ended balancing by unreliable balancers." His bottom line is that the clear and present danger test hasn't caused much mischief in the last 50 years but it might do so in the next 50.
