First Amendment freedoms start at home


The state of the First Amendment isn't uniformly good: The Newseum Institute finds that only 49% of people ages 18 to 29 believe in universal freedom of religion. That's a big problem, because the First Amendment freedoms aren't just a "sometimes" thing. If you don't find yourself struggling from time to time with something that's protected by the First Amendment, then you're probably not taking it seriously enough -- and that's a good thing. The whole point of those freedoms is to challenge us (and our assumptions), ensuring that even the unpopular ideas/religions/media outlets/political opinions/groups have the same rights as the popular ones.
