    TRANSCRIPT: AGNEW (SEQ 3) "I'VE BEEN ABSOLUTELY SHOCKED AS I GO AROUND THE COUNTRY TALKING TO SOME OF THE PEOPLE WHO SHOULD BE OPINION-MOULDERS IN THIS COUNTRY, SHOULD BE SETTING A RESPONSIBLE ATTITUDE IN THIS COUNTRY, TO HEAR THEM SAY THAT THOSE WHO BREAK THE LAWS SHOULD BE EXCUSED UNDER CERTAIN CIRCUMSTANCES. I SAY THEY SHOULD BE EXCUSED UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES. YOU KNOW THAT THIS RIGHT TO DISSENT IS THE WHOLE ISSUE OF THE CAMPAIGN, AND HEAVEN KNOWS, THIS COUNTRY IS BUILT UPON RESPONSIBLE DISSENT. IT'S BUILT ON THE RIGHT TO DISAGREE WITHOUT FEAR WITH ESTABLISHED AUTHORITY; IT'S BUILT ON THE RIGHT OF A FREE PRESS TO SAY WHAT IT WANTS. IT'S BUILT ON THE RIGHT OF A PEOPLE TO GO OUT AND DEMONSTRATE IF THEY ADHERE TO THE LAW AND DON'T INTERFERE WITH THE RIGHTS OF OTHER PEOPLE TO ENJOY THEIR LIVES. ALL OF THESE THINGS HAVE BEEN LAID DOWN BY THE COURTS AND LAID DOWN PROPERLY, BUT IT DOES NOT INCLUDE CIVIL DISOBEDIENCE AND VIOLENCE, AND FOR THAT WE WILL NEVER STAND."
