^Again, I am separating Jessep's actions from the speech.

His words could easily be spoken by a black-ops agent--that the public can't know the truth, because they couldn't handle it.

Frankly, in the speech, he doesn't mention breaking the law, per se. He mentions doing dark things which some might consider morally wrong--but not necessarily illegal. His actions were illegal, but his speech didn't refer to that.
"The saying implies but does not name the effective agency of its supposed utopia.... 'Needs and abilities' are, of course, subjective. So the operative statement may be reduced to 'the State shall take, the State shall give'."
