    I believe in free speech. I’m glad it’s the very first thing we added to the United States Constitution. I’m all for the freedom of the press, and I think blogging, social media, and even email (as a mass distribution weapon) are all great ways to exercise this new technologies level the playing field and allow the huddled masses to become citizen journalists. The First Amendment protects everybody’s right to freedom of speech and association. Freedom of speech and association includes the right to read books and magazines, the right to call or write to your family and friends, the right to criticize government or state officials, and much more.

    In episode two, It's a Free Country, Peter Sagal learns more about the right to free speech. Watch the clip below, read the statement from the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU), .   Because freedom of speech is a right that other rights depend on, this book encompasses vast areas of 21st-century dispute. Garton Ash’s Author: Nick Cohen.

    Since there's no set formula for how much dialogue you can use, keep an eye out for these common pitfalls and consider the effect of a dialogue-heavy read in the context of your work. This should help you figure out if you've used too much or just the right amount.   Voltaire's comment--"I disapprove of what you say, but I will defend to the death your right to say it"--is frequently quoted by defenders of free speech. Yet it is rare to find someone prepared to defend all freedom of speech, especially if the views expressed are obnoxious or obviously false. So where do we draw the line? How important is our right to freedom of speech?5/5(1).
