Truest statement of the week

If the accuser is always to be believed, if a denial by the accused only serves as further proof of guilt, and if no corroborating evidence is required, then the accused are in an impossible situation, like those accused of witchcraft in Salem. This repudiation of due process is antidemocratic and right-wing.
