We should protect everything that people say because it's their right to say what they believe and if we take that away we are no different from North Korea or Cuba. Depriving people of what they can or can't say takes away the whole ideology this country was born of people started a revolution for what they believed so we shouldn't take it away. The only time that we should stop protecting people of what they believe is when there is a violent outbreak like the attack in Charlottesville. James Alex Fields, Jr is a prime example of what free speech isn't because speech is not going out in your car and ramming it into a group of people this when the government should step in because that is no longer speech in a peaceful way you are harming people for stating there own opinion(Pearce). Some people try to take justice into their own hands like Based Stickman AKA Kyle Chapman who went to a Trump rally and starting assaulting people with a flagpole and he was then taken to jail on suspicion of a felony with a deadly weapon(Chang).
“Religious liberty might be supposed to mean that everybody is free to discuss religion. In practice, it means that hardly anybody is allowed to mention it.” ― G.K. Chesterton Many occasions in the United States history have shown that religion has caused many controversial questions. These questions have brought the American Justice System to a running halt, leading society to begin to ponder about the importance of freedom of religion, true meanings of the free exercise and establishment clause, and if there should be limitations imposed on the free exercise of one’s religious beliefs.
This terrorism is usually associated with Muslim groups. As a safety precaution the United States has decided that no Muslims are allowed access into our country. They think that it is a good idea to decrease the possibility of a terrorist attack by just not allowing any Muslims into our country. This could end up ruffling some feathers though, because some might think that this is unfair to them due to excerpt two of the Declaration of Independence. This excerpt states,” We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.
When someone has violated your rights you can act by making a case for why you had the right to do what you did. You need to know your rights when you encounter law enforcement. When you are not being allowed your right you have the right to speak up so do so. You also have the right to believe in whatever religion you want to believe in so if someone is not letting you believe in what you want then your rights have been violated, so speak up and tell someone.
In the First Amendment it states, “Congress shall make no law abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press.” This means people can freely express thoughts or ideas to their own will or liking. This includes the ability to speak freely about the way someone feels about a political official such as the president. In an article given by Score Rims it states, “The writers of The Bill of Rights did not want the government to have censorship powers over citizens, so we have the right to say what we think. Someone can even say that the government stinks and nothing will happen to you.
He wants to illustrate that we should question what we are told. Ron Paul, an American physician, author, and former Republican congressman alleged “ Real patriotism is a willingness to challenge the government when it’s wrong”. Unquestioned obedience is not the same as patriotism. The voice of liberty should not be mute. People should raise their voices in order to eliminate and to change social injustices.
Now I don’t know if I necessarily agree with this quote, because I feel as though Americans and their government should work together, which is how I believe Jefferson intended it to be. Once the government and the people can begin to work together much like The Declaration of Independence suggested, then maybe Americans can begin to work had in hand, which is how Jefferson originally intended for it to
An American politician Barbara Jordan has once said,“ We,as human beings, must be willing to accept people who are different from ourselves.” Jordan’s word shows people shouldn’t treat the other differently because they are not like you. .Allen the writer of “American Flag Stands for Tolerance” writes about how people had no right to judge what the “other” is doing or thinking of the meaning of our flag. Sometimes we just need to be blind about what the other is doing or thinking. Lynda Barry the author of “Sanctuary” had shown how the society is acting blindly to what thing is happening in the school.
North Koreans can’t have international calls or any contact with the people outside the country (Doe). The only opinion that’s permitted to be heard is the governments, and the people must trust it regardless of what (Doe). In conclusion, North Korea is a nation in which a wide range of media including TV, and webs are controlled. Human rights are continuously being disregarded, along these North Koreans government is untamed, brutal, and unreasonable.
I think that in such cases the harm principle fails to clarify in the different kinds of speech that should be allowed. The freedom of speech is clearly important in a society to express themselves, but there are limits. The role of government should then be to protect our right to free speech and to control hate speech, which is harmful to
It 's not a felony charge, you are not going to go to jail or prison for it. Frank Trippett believes that we need to get rid of the minor charges because it puts you in a category with other people that are like repeat offenders. But if we did not have the consequences we do what is stopping these people from doing these things and before you know it, our country is going to be a wreck. Law and rules are put into effect for the betterment of mankind that is why we need to have people obeying them and learning from them at all
He begins by trying to encourage the people to see that the constitution will take away what they have fought so hard for. He continues by giving the reasons as to why the people should question the constitution. He mainly points out that there is a reason the Constitutional Convention was held in secrecy and that the people should recognize and be unsettled about this. Another reason he has no faith in the constitution and suggests that the people should not either is because they want it ratified quickly. He believes this is because they do not want the people to look over the constitution too thoroughly and find flaws or areas that will take away from the people having control.
After the colonists gained their independence, the governmental body of the United States wanted to make sure that quartering could not occur, and never without the consent of the house owner. They, in Amendment 3 of the Bill of Rights, stated “No Soldier shall, in time of peace be quartered in any house, without the consent of the Owner, nor in time of war, but in a manner to be prescribed by law” (U.S. Cong.). This assured Americans that soldiers could not be forcefully placed in their house by the government, and that if soldiers were to be quartered, it would be lawful, and with the people 's consent. Congress, in doing this, avoided the mistakes of the British Parliament in quartering.
Our country was founded on the constitution and the way the government is stepping over the line with the Patriot Act is unreasonable. People need to speak out and defend our rights so that we don’t become a martial law country. Martial law country is basically where the constitution is suspended, and you have no freedom of speech, no freedom of the press, no freedom of assembly and you could be arrested at any time for any reason whatsoever. The military would be completely in control (Synder, 2015). This is a very scary thought that in our country there would be no rights.
America is a country made of immigrants and their children. The First Amendment is so important because it guarantees that people won’t be arrested by the government for customs they have. Religion is the backbone of almost every major culture and civilization in the world. Having religious freedom means that no matter what god(s) you worship, no one has the right pursue legal action against you. This also means that the United States cannot establish a national religion.
