The most important words ever written into law

The Magna Carta, Chapter 39:
No freeman shall be taken, imprisoned, disseised, outlawed, banished, or in any way destroyed, nor will We proceed against or prosecute him, except by the lawful judgment of his peers and by the law of the land.
For the first time in history the Rule of Law was placed before the Rule of Man.  In two weeks, the Magna Carta will celebrate it's 798th birthday.
