The First Amendment Applies To Me But Not Thee

The First Amendment Applies To Me But Not Thee

Before we get to this week's segment on Talkback with Chuck Wilder, I wanted to mention that I'm reading a book called Free Speech. It gives the history of the idea and the vacillation of free speech rights throughout the history of man going back to the Greeks and Romans.

Chuck and I talk a bit about this very topic and how we as a nation have come to believe that some things true that are really not. We exist in a very delusional time.

We have a Bill of Rights that says we have free speech. It is the very first thing mentioned in the First Amendment. But that right Bill of Rights is applicable only to limiting the reach of government.

We're seeing now that in the private sector, free speech has a value. Some people value it more. Some people value it less. People at social media censorship boards? They tend to value it less. They want to control and define what is “proper” and “good” speech, excluding – in most cases – any non-sanctioned narrative, and in the techno world that means this. If you believe in the Constitution or you have a conservative agenda, well, your sh*t out of luck.

I urge you to pick up this book, Free Speech. I'm listening to it but pick up the book: Free Speech by Jacob Mchangama. You can get it on Amazon. You can get it on Audible.

It's important for us to know that the free speech that is provided to us through the First Amendment only applies to how government interacts with the people. It's not codified into law.

Imagine what kind of a country we would be living in if the First Amendment, Second Amendment, Fourth, Fifth; if the total of the Bill of Rights was actually codified into law. It would certainly keep social media from censoring and we wouldn’t need any fact-checkers to manipulate us.

It would be a game-changer.

Then, this week's segment on Talkback with Chuck Wilder…
