MR JUSTICE CRANSTON:
The appellant's case.
"It also seems plain that as the general social appreciation of what is tolerable and of the proper role of the state in regulating the lives of individuals changes with the passage of time, so we shall expect to find that the assumption of the Criminal Justice System about what types of conduct are excluded from this scope and what is meant by going "too far" will not remain constant (at 267F)."
