Freedom of Speech: Crash Course Government and Politics #25

Today, FINALLY, Craig is going to talk about Free Speech! Now, free speech is so important because it not only allows you to critique the government, but it also protects you from the government. But it’s essential to remember that not ALL speech is protected equally under the First Amendment, and just because you have a right to free speech doesn’t mean your employer, for instance, can’t fire you for something you say (unless your work for the government and then things get a bit more complicated). So we’ll take a look at a couple significant Supreme Court cases that have gotten us to our current definition of free speech, and we’ll also discuss some of the more controversial aspects of free speech – like hate speech.
