FREE SPEECH

“Freedom of speech means that you shall not do something to people either for the views they have, or the views they express, or the words they speak or write.”
Hugo L. Black, U.S. Supreme Court Justice 1963

The only valid censorship of ideas is the right of people not to listen.  ~Tommy Smothers

“It is called the First Amendment. …Simple words marching in seried ranks. Compact, concise. To the point. Clear and pure. It’s freedom’s music.” Jack Valenti, Chairman of the Motion Picture Association of America

Censorship reflects society’s lack of confidence in itself.  It is a hallmark of an authoritarian regime.  ~Potter Stewart
