The First Amendment is as Bad as the Second one

The first amendment has become as dangerous and stupid as the second one. Obviously, the founders never wanted to protect the right of mass shooters to use automatic weapons. It is a gross, willful misinterpretation to say it does.


Nor did those obviously practical people think that free speech meant that people should be encouraged to sabotage public health by messaging millions at a time, hundreds of times a day. Their idea of speech was, convince five people you know who each convince five more, percolating through the filter of individual decisions until it influences society, or not. 

 Like the new 'freedom of religion' meaning that the powerful get to impose their religion on each of us, the first amendment has been distorted into an obviously insane tool that is destroying our society.
