The Constitution provides a structure. You can't change the structure. The basic meaning of the structure is in tact. However, how that structure is used at a period of time can be interpreted differently to some extent... as long as the structure remains in place. Free speech is the structure.I understand but one flexibility leads to another and then another.
Finally you are so far away from an original intent that you might as well had thrown it out in the first place.
I look to things like Australia and some parts of Europe that supposedly value free speech highly but then they try to censor the internet and what they determine to be hate speech.
What's next I wonder?
I don't agree completely. Though human psychology hasn't changed much, it's application and societal infrastructure and responses have.True but this has yet to be proven with respect to rights.
We may be far from our past as far as technology goes but we are not far away from despotic human desires that have plagued the world prior to the creation of the U.S.
I suppose I am somewhat open to the application of change.I keep that in mind and guard what is mine fervently.
