The foundation of America is built on having freedom. Not allowing for the practice of religion or certain beliefs limits American’s ability to remain free from government control. Each parent or child who refuses has the “constitutional right to do so” (Karst) and this refusal is validated because adults with children have “parental rights”(Field). When a set religion or belief system establishes that they are against medical vaccinations, they have the right to argue. No established religion is set in the United States so informing a family that a child must be vaccinated pressures against their belief system; consequently, the performance of this action is purely unconstitutional.
Banning books has always been a big debate if it’s acceptable or not in the field of language arts… most Americans believe people should have the freedom to choose what they want to read. By banning books, our basic rights as US citizens are kind of taken away. Book banning affects the people who read books to the people who write them. I feel that most people banned or try to ban books because they want to protect others from different ideas and information. Banned books are basically books that are thought to be “unsuited” for their intended age group and are therefore challenged by parents to be removed from a school or any local library shelf.
The first amendment states freedom of the press doesn 't seem that way in today 's society. In our constitution it states we have freedom of speech and press. Books being banned in today 's society shows how suppressive government 's can be. The first amendment states " Congress shall make no law
In conclusion, the thought of censoring in The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn is plainly idiotic. It suppresses the message Mark Twain is trying to send by, as Hetert-Qebu Walters says, “changes are another form of censorship, seeking to gloss over the complexities of life during a horrific period in American history.” therefore destroying the meaning of the novel. Children will not be tainted by the words used because they know why the words are used, because of education and the fact that they plainly won’t bat and eye at the words. People such as publishers who wish to reprint the book with censored words have no respect for literature and just care about printing more copies for more money. With all of this said I cannot help but to agree with Walters when she says, “choose an edition of Huckleberry Finn that respects the words of Twain as he wrote them & his critique of our nation 's history”.
Claim: Furthermore, books should not be censored and readers should be able to choose how to read and how to learn Understandably, some books may be inappropriate for certain individuals to read. This would be why books would be banned in the first place, to protect children from choosing a bad book. However, Jamie Leigh says, “…when it comes to censorship, is that one individual disagreement—or even widespread dispute—over an idea or form of expression does not justify restricting access for others to the same information…” Also, many books are banned for unjust reasons. For instance, To Kill a Mockingbird was banned for promoting white supremacy ("WHY WAS IT BANNED?"). However, this well written novel does no such thing.
The First Amendment aims to protect the right of freedom of religion and the right of freedom of expression of all United States citizens. However, Lawrence states “The Supreme Court has held that words that ‘by their very utterance inflict injury or intend to incite an immediate breach of the peace’ are not constitutionally protected.” (Lawrence, pg 175) The First Amendment does not protect speech that maintains a sole purpose to inflict harm on other people. “Racial insults are undeserving for First Amendment protection because the perpetrator’s intention is not to discover truth or initiate dialogue, but to injure the victim” (Lawrence, pg 175) If someone is going to have a conversation with another person, than their freedom of speech should be protected, however; if someone had the sole intentions of causing harm or discomfort to the person that they were speaking with or at, then their freedom of speech may not be so protected. This should be of no concern to any persons on a college campus who are worrying about their right to freedom of speech or expression being neglected, considering that speech codes only work to prevent harm inflicted by hate speech to all students. I agree with Lawrence in that if we are going to end racism, we, as a society, have to take small steps in protecting minority
I will not banned books because each book has a purpose. I wouldn’t banned these books because it would be like taking away some knowledge from the kids. You cant take history away just because of the violence. For example if they banned religious books because its against another religion it wouldn’t be right. People wont know what happened in history if we banned them.
Constitutionalist do not support ending the life of an unborn regardless of whether it was an assault. Constitutionalist believe that the U.S borders should be monitored to prevent immigrants to enter. They also are against illegal drugs and would want to have restrictions on them. They also support religious expression. They support Christian schools and allow equal rights to pray and learn about their beliefs.
The first amendment of the United States Constitution protects citizens’ rights to; freedom of the press, peaceful assembly, religious freedom, the right to petition the government, and the right to free speech. The Constitution itself asserts: “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” Interpreting the first amendment has always been a subject for debate, and many citizens of the United States are unaware of what is actually protected by the first amendment, specifically in regards to freedom of speech. This lack
While what religion they are changes a bit it doesn 't change that much. All in all there should not be a student book council because it can lead to drugs and pornography. It can also lead to deaths of people that didn 't have enough viable information. Finally since we are in the USA we need to abide by the Constitution. - Owen J.
Then how are books banned? They get banned on the principle that “’a school is not comparable to a public park where anyone can stand on a soapbox…’-Tinker v. Des Moines” (Mullally). Freedom of speech is recognized in the schoolhouse, however “’it is not quite as free inside educational institutions…’’’ (““About Banned & Challenged Books””). People cannot ban a book simply because they disagree with it. They can, however, challenge it.
Rule: The first amendment states that “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech.” Analysis: No, the rights of those staff members were not violated. The two pages that were excluded from the newspapers final publication included articles on teenage pregnancy and the impacts of divorce on students. The principal that removed the two pages acted reasonably as the newspaper is an extension of a journalism class and is subject to being under control a faculty member. This may have been different if the school had created a forum of some sort which was separate from the curriculum and allowed all students to post their opinions. If someone was silenced on that site then there would be a violation of rights, however, that is not the case.
For this reason, the government can’t ban guns. However, they can impose certain limitations on what guns you can buy. Also, where you buy the guns from, when you buy them from, and who has access to them. In further explanation of the concept of who has access to them, the government has the right as well to prevent citizens such as convicted felons. This is apparent in the second amendment when it states, “A well-regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be
I think that people can use the Freedom of speech without being rude or mean or disrespectful. The Constitution gives us the right to have Freedom of Speech, but it does not give us the right to abuse it. The First Amendment guarantees freedoms concerning religion, expression, assembly, and the right to petition. It forbids Congress from both promoting one religion over others and also restricting an individual’s
