Read and Be Mad



Much thanks to Elizabeth for the link (find her at right ^_^). A snippet of this article:



WASHINGTON (AP) -- The way many high school students see it, government censorship of newspapers may not be a bad thing, and flag burning is hardly protected free speech.

It turns out the First Amendment is a second-rate issue to many of those nearing their own adult independence, according to a study of high school attitudes released Monday.

...

When told of the exact text of the First Amendment, more than one in three high school students said it goes "too far" in the rights it guarantees. Only half of the students said newspapers should be allowed to publish freely without government approval of stories.


Thank you, Republicans, for scaring the shit out of our kids with things like the Patriot Act and censorship of our airwaves (via the controversal cases of Stern and etc). Now high schoolers feel that they've been given too many rights--the very rights this country was founded on and peoples on the other side of the world are (literally) killing for. Great.

LoL. We posted about the same thing. Different articles, but the same basic topic. Basic inalienable rights. I didn't actually write anything though. Just linked this:
