“The United States Constitution legally protects your fundamental human rights. Every citizen should feel free from an immediate threat, so limited speech restrictions make sense. However, valuing free speech means that our collective tolerance for new ideas needs to increase. Redefining every negative interaction as hate speech hurts everyone, creating a climate of political correctness that ultimately muzzles every American. There is a reason that free speech is legally defined. No one person or group can impose their ideas or priorities on another, nor should they. Ultimately, these values promote mutual respect, which creates the safest public climate for all citizens across every political stripe and social issue.”
… Sujit Choudhry is the founding director of the Center for Constitutional Transitions and the I. Michael Heyman Professor of Law at the University of California, Berkeley – School of Law.
Personally, I could not agree more whole-heartily about the U.S. Constitutional human rights agenda against suppression and controls than what Professor Choudhry stated above. However, not everyone sees the U.S. founding documents in that light or interpretation.
Apparently, the “more narrow interpretation” Professor Choudhry talks about in his article comes from the “political correctness” meme which, ostensibly, gave birth to what ought to be labeled “Democrat radicalism.”
Another sphere of First Amendment restraint factors, in my opinion, which ought to be impacted with harnessing their rabid controls of the First Amendment regarding free speech are the six media corporations that own 90 percent of free thought and free speech media-output in the USA: GE, News Corp., Disney, Viacom, Time Warner, CBS. Ninety percent outputs boil down either to collusion or control! Which is it? And why have citizens fallen for it?
As a Nation, do we want the total loss of our freedoms that were paid for in blood, sweat, tears, honor and devotion to be lost?
