Remarks of Assistant Attorney General, Civil Rights Division, before the Chamber of Commerce of the United States of America. National Chamber Litigation Center's Forum Luncheon Series (Washington, D.C., September 26, 1984).
Reynolds, Wm. Bradford
The Reagan Administration's allegiance lies with the advocates of individual rights, not the protectors of group entitlements. This stand is based on the belief that defense of individual rights is the only appropriate basis for achieving a consensus on civil rights in a pluralistic society. Group preferences, which have been imposed by the Federal bureaucracy, have led to bitterness and disharmony. During the past term of the Supreme Court, the rights of individuals began to regain the constitutional recognition they once enjoyed, and group entitlements were effectively relegated to the sidelines.
