One of the most controversial amendments in this day of age, is the freedom of speech. The term “freedom of speech” has been taken out of context and given various form of interpretation by people who either don’t understand the term completely or have an agenda in mind. This is a fundamental freedom that every democratic country guarantees its citizens. 

Our Freedom of speech is given to us, among our many other rights, so we the people can stand up for our words and be safe to talk our own opinions. But, with this freedom comes limitations that are tested everyday. Many forms of speech are prohibited in order to keep the peace in the atmosphere. We are limited by the government in order to keep equilibrium of society steady. 

Even though freedom of speech can be tricky, understanding what can be said under the first amendment is key. This will give you more confidence when you 're talking about current events, it 'll inhibit social interaction, but the biggest reason of all is understanding your rights will keep you out of jail. Even the supreme court struggles to determine what exactly constitutes protected speech. 

It provides people with the opportunity to express their own ideas, thoughts, and speak their mind about matters at large. Throughout history, the rights to freedom of speech has been questioned and or exploited in many different ways and as a direct cause many organization and groups of people have taken the chance to inquire about the limits provided by this right.
