    I hate to admit, but I always forget addressing of grievances and right to assemble. I think out of laziness, my brain lumps those two in with the other three.

    Those and the Freedom of the Press are kind of just extensions of Freedom of Speech.

    Naa, its a good reference. Most people dont know them all, which is alright, but the important thing is to list them so we can learn what we dont know. Then others can learn, and see by comparing to what is protected to what has already been lost.

    I could express myself by murdering your sister and putting her head on a pike. That is violent expression - when you express yourself by violating the Rights of others.

    In this world, you can only express yourself violently or peacefully. Talking is not a violent act. Only in the eyes of a tyrant. Peaceful expression aka expressing yourself without violating the Rights of others is articulated in the 1st Amendment but it is given to us by nature and nature’s god.

    The answer is ZERO.

    Anybody who cherishes liberty knows that the list of 5 in the 1st are simply an outline for government to take notice. It is up to me, you, the People, to protect our Natural Rights.

    Words on a page are just that. They can’t “protect” anybody.

    “The right to life is the source of all rights—and the right to property is their only implementation. Without property rights, no other rights are possible. Since man has to sustain his life by his own effort, the man who has no right to the product of his effort has no means to sustain his life. The man who produces while others dispose of his product, is a slave.”

    The first amendment protects: unpopular speech, unpopular religion, unpopular press...which allows us to protest all and shine a light on them.

    This is a better discussion in a free speech zone. Properly permitted, of course.

    Trick question. Only the Second Amendment can protect rights.

    Close. But you forgot to include "with the proper permits"
    It's all about taking action and not being lazy. So you do the work, whether it's fitness or whatever. It's about getting up, motivating yourself and just doing it.

    Nope - that’s judicial tyranny. That’s a Supreme Court interpretation during the Progressive Era. The same fallible Supreme Court this ruled Africans aren’t US citizens (Dred Scott v Sanford) and the States had the power to sterlize “imbeciles” (Buck v Bell). Not a good track record of siding with Inalienable, Natural Rights.

    Should it be up to the theater if the person personally kills or injures the other guests?
    If there is no fire then the liar who shouted that there is one is criminally liable for any damages to the other guests or the theater.

    Technically says 'Congress shall make no law respecting establishment of religion.'

    That is, just can't make any law on the subject, neither for nor against. It is up to the states. They could have an established state religion, ala Massachusetts, or total religious anarchy, ala Virginia. Just none of the Feds' business; can't get involved.

    They may have been right, but it was for entirely the wrong reason ...

    Holmes used the supposedly "unprotected speech" of "falsely shouting fire in a theatre and causing a panic" (his exact words) as an analogy for the supposedly "unprotected speech" of speaking out against the military draft during World War One. This is a terrible and utterly bogus analogy. because the former (dangerously disrupting a place of public commerce) has nothing to do with "speech" (except perhaps incidentally[1]), while the latter (openly criticizing government policy) has everything to do with it.



    [1] "Falsely shouting fire in a theatre and causing a panic" should not be tolerated. But causing a panic in a theater by falsely triggering a fire alarm without ever uttering a word should not be tolerated, either - and for exactly the same reasons, no more and no less. The fact that a verbal element is incidentally involved in the "shouting" scenario is irrelevant to the substance of the question. The issue of "speech" ("protected" or otherwise) simply does not enter into the matter.
