73. In reading and discussing Professor Onuma’s impressive treatise, we recalled an event from the early 1970s that has become part of Yale folklore. Professor Myres McDougal, lecturing to a large class, stated that the goal of international law was to secure human dignity. An American student accused McDougal of simply taking an American concept and imposing it on the rest of the world. Eisuke Suzuki of Tokyo, a doctoral student, who is remembered for having founded the Yale Journal of International Law by using his own fellowship money and living in his car, bounded angrily out of his chair and shouted: “How dare you claim that America invented human dignity!”
