How to use dissent in a sentence?

  1. Scott Crow:

    This is another draconian measure to actually criminalize dissent in the United States.

  2. William O. Douglas:

    Man is about to be an automaton; he is identifiable only in the computer. As a person of worth and creativity, as a being with an infinite potential, he retreats and battles the forces that make him inhuman. The dissent we witness is a reaffirmation of faith in man; it is protest against living under rules and prejudices and attitudes that produce the extremes of wealth and poverty and that make us dedicated to the destruction of people through arms, bombs, and gases, and that prepare us to think alike and be submissive objects for the regime of the computer.

  3. Samit Aich:

    We believe in the Indian legal system. A campaign is being waged against dissent, but we will not be cowed.

  4. David Mamet:

    We live in oppressive times. We have, as a nation, become our own thought police; but instead of calling the process by which we limit our expression of dissent and wonder censorship, we call it concern for commercial viability.

  5. Amnesty International:

    The proposed counter-terrorism law vastly expands the Egyptian authorities’ powers and threatens the most fundamental rights to freedom of expression, peaceful assembly and association, if approved, it is set to become yet another tool for the authorities to crush all forms of dissent.
