Here We Go…Slate Magazine Bashes the First Amendment

This article is so heinous I almost couldn’t believe what I was reading. Better yet, the author, Eric Posner, is a Professor at the University of Chicago Law School. So let me get this straight, a guy who is teaching law to our future lawyers is arguing against The First Amendment of the Constitution, which is the single most important document in U.S. history upon which all laws are supposed to be written!

Wow. This guy isn’t just saying people should be cautious about what they say, he seems to really have a deep dislike for free speech.  Here is the winning line in his absurd piece:

Even other Western nations take a more circumspect position on freedom of expression than we do, realizing that often free speech must yield to other values and the need for order.

Really Eric?  Who’s values?  What values are you referring to specifically?  Did you come up with them?  What if we end up with a President that decides different values down the road?

The need for order??

What kind of Nazi language is this Mr. Posner?  Feels great to know you are teaching law.  Either you are a complete imbecile or you are coming from a sinister place.  I go with the latter.

Spread this far and wide folks.

  1. Hey, it’s a “living document.” Gotta adapt to the times. Humans are far advanced from the time of the Founders.

    Take this lawyer for example.

    As a sociopath he is teaching sociopathology to present or future sociopaths at a sociopathic university in a sociopathic city in a sociopathic state filled with sociopaths who vote for sociopaths much like all the other sociopaths in all the other sociopathic states. And so in a republic gone to a democracy, the sociopaths have made it possible to elect idiots to pass the idiotic laws that demonstrate sociopathology.

    Everything is as it should be. Yield your values for the need for Order, you know. We’ve come a long ways.

  2. This would be an ideal time to forbid the teaching or even discussion of socialism. That poison has harmed us more than anything else.
