1st Amendment Song

What is it?The First Amendment protects the rights of all citizens of the United States equally. This gives all citizens equal legal standing.

Cons: - what people write about isn't good -protests can become violent -not all religions are good to practice

Pros:-magazines and bloggers can write about whatever they want without fear of government involvement. -people can protest freely. -freedom to practice any religion.

Justice Oliver Wendell Holmes stated in this case about "falsely shouting fire in a theatre" and set forth a "clear and present danger test" to judge whether speech is protected by the First Amendment. "The question," he wrote, "is whether the words are used in such circumstances and are of such a nature as to create a clear and present danger that they will bring about the substantive evils that Congress has the right to prevent. It is a question of proximity and degree." The Supreme Court affirmed the convictions of the defendants for conspiring to violate certain federal statutes by attempting to incite subordination in the armed forces and interfere with recruitment and enlistment. During wartime, the defendants mailed to new recruits and enlisted men leaflets that compared military conscription to involuntary servitude and urged them to assert constitutional rights.

Conclusion The first amendment of the Bill of Right is the freedom of speech, press, religion, and expression.
