 Mark word for later review on this computer
The court held that government did not need to wait until the moment before an illegal action was to be executed if  "Government is aware
that a group aiming at its overthrow is attempting to indoctrinate
its members and to commit them to a course whereby they will
strike when the leaders feel the circumstances permit."
