William Jennings Bryan,
A documentary look at the changing interpretations of the first amendment of the U.S. Constitution - laws and court cases that have alternatively broadened and narrowed the amendment's protection of free speech and assembly. The film's thesis is that post-9/11 the government has seized unprecedented license to surveil, intimidate, arrest, and detain citizens and foreigners alike. The film also looks back to the Pentagon Papers' case and compares it to cases since 9/11 dealing with high school students' speech and protesters marching in New York City during the 2004 Republican convention. Comment comes from a range of scholars, pundits, and advocates.Written by
I found this documentary to be very informative about how in certain times of crisis the government will punish your freedom of speech. This is a very big deal because the government shouldn't be allowed to do that but they can.We see many different stories about how a certain crisis happened in America and how different peoples freedom of speech were punished. The documentary give a different view of our right to freedom of speech and how if they can't punish you for your speech then they'll find a different problem to accuse you with. When we think freedom of speech we think that we can say whatever we want but in reality the government can take away our ability to do so. This is a great documentary on how if the government feels like you are going to cause a panic in the society then they can take your freedom of speech and make it harder for you to say what you want without getting punished for it. If you are interested in learning about freedom of speech and the different ways that it has been used against people I recommend that you watch this documentary.
