The First Amendment for DUMMIES.
Nothing as dangerous as people who believe they know & understand BUT DON'T. Ignorance, noise & opinion. More wrong, more vociferous.
Understanding the First Amendment & its application is fundamental to understanding Democracy, America & the seperation of public & private spheres. Basically Americans freedoms versus state control. PATRIOTS WILL GET IT RIGHT. Socialists, fascists, communists will get it wrong but believe they got it right. Socialists believe business serves the government. Not it's clients.
Understanding the First Amendment.
First Amendment states:
Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.
That means government shall not restrict free discourse or opinions. Protects various forms of political speech, anonymous speech, campaign finance and school speech.
The Free Press Clause protects publication of information and opinions, and applies to a wide variety of media.
Key term "congress". First Amendment applies only to state actors. DUMMIES think it prohibits anyone from limiting free speech, including private, non-governmental entities. It doesn't.
Yahoo is a privately owned entity. It owes the public nothing. To be successful in the marketplace, it must provide a product or service that has value to its clients/customers for which they will expand their limited resources. Definition of Capitalism or Free Enterprise.
It's Yahoo's platform, they aren't obligated to the user except in the terms set forth in the Customer Agreement/Contract/Policy.
Because you want to propagate nonsense & act informed about things of which you know nothing is not a reason for Comments to be available. Feel free to start your own platform, cry like a baby, continue being wrong or be a DUMMY.
Please, for those who correctly understand censorship & the Constitution, your silence would be a blessing.
