—  Will Rogers

It would wreck the very foundation on which our political government is run... If you ever injected truth into politics you'd have no politics … Even the ministers are denouncing it now … Humanity is not yet ready for either real truth or real harmony.

House, who had proposed the use of scopolamine as a truth serum, in The Use of Scopolamine in Criminology (1922).
