    Nu înţeleg sensul următoarei exprimări din fraza de mai jos: to the contrary notwithstanding.
    Mă poate ajuta cineva?

    The people of 1776 and 1787 had experienced totalitarianism, and, 'Oliver Wiswells' to the contrary notwithstanding, it was no mere declaration when Patrick Henry declared that he knew not what course others may pursue, but as for him, give him liberty or give him death.

    Este o expresie mai veche din jargonul juridic, care stipulează că orice afirmație/declarație/petiție contrară celei care urmează în contextul unde apre expresia, nu este valabilă sau nu are valoare.
