Thank you, elburcher! I admit this once to asking for help with my homework... You exceeded my expectations.
This phrase is so often used in the context of the sexual revolution we forget it was used during the civil rights movement of the 60's, which is the answer I was expecting.
Can anyone tell me if it was Barry Goldwater or Martin Luther King, Jr., who first used the phrase in regard to race relations?
"....he believed that this act unconstitutionally extended the federal government's commerce power to private citizens in its drive to 'legislate morality'....
"It may be true that morality cannot be legislated, but behavior can be regulated."
This may be impossible, since they both tossed it around a bit. They were saying and writing it in 1963-1964.
