The first amendment isn't a mandate deeming all restrictions on speech, assembling, religion, and press absolutely unconstitutional.

Quite contrary. The amendment wasn't added because our founding fathers wished our nation to be an absolute anarchist's playground. It definitely doesn't protect the right of cannabils to assemble. Or the right to send a death threat to your teacher.
There are restrictions that deem what speech is protected.

The amendment was added to ensure that if we were upset with the powers that be- how things are ran, who's running it, the support of radical views, etc.- we could still be heard. So the government couldn't silence everyone, stop them from practicing their own version of their own religion. Prevent them from identifying problems in authority. Be it the corporation, city, state, or national authority.

You can protest an abortion clinic or build a temple on your property to practice buddhism in your community. The government can not prevent news from being broadcast on the radio, tv, or in newspapers. Anti- Bush books, essays, and speeches, short of slander and libel, are also protected under the first amendment.


An explanation of protection restrictions under our first amendment is here.

Ask questions in comments. I'll do my best to answer.

Subject:The question isn't whether you've thought about it...
Posted by:s1natra_l1ves.
Time:9:53 pm.
Mood: here goes!.
The question is whether or not you'll think about it too late.

It's been brought to my attention recently that high school students in the US don't know what the 1st ammendment is. They don't know what it does. How it helps, why we need it, how we need to keep it. And how we could be losing it.


Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances.



That's the first ammendment. That's what this community is about. Join, don't join. It's all the same to me. You can post, watch, or whatever you'd like. But you should know that the first amendment is here. That any infringement on any citizen's rights in this country.. is an infringement on yours.
