We have become a nation divided, and ideologically segregated.

We are a democracy sick to its core and a community plagued by an “us” versus “them” mentality, but recovery is not sought by the masses.  The cure is as simple as a mutual quest for camaraderie, and so we must.

This cure is dependent on the First Amendment—a right worthy of protection.

And so we shall.

The First Amendment

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.

Freedom of Speech

Every day, there is yet another threat to one of the many freedoms to which we have all grown accustomed: speech. Protected speech has been becoming unprotected; moreover, large amounts of speech that was protected now violates new rules at the institutions we have come to rely on to educate us for the real world. Now, instead of being educated and prepared for what life can offer in these institutions, codes and censors placed on speech have effectively created a harmful bubble for us students to live and grow in.

We believe that it does nothing but shelter students from the real world’s hazards, instead of training us for them. We believe that limitations on speech stunt our intellectual growth and silences the voices of those in non-authoritative positions.

Freedom of the Press

The freedom of the press, like that of speech, is also being whittled away. Across many institutions, the right to write is becoming more and more a privilege, subject to the wants of others rather than the writers themselves: what was once protected has become unprotected. Now, instead of journalists and writer—many of whom are students—working as the mouthpieces of debate and discussion, censorship has decisively promoted a few, rather than many, types of thought.

We believe that such restrictions do nothing but create one acceptable opinion rather than allowing open discussion and debate, which are key for students at college and for Americans at large. Since the press is in some sense an extension of speech, limitations on what may be written only silence those not in positions of power, harm intellectual growth, as well as stifling democratic ideals.
