Freedom of Speech Questions

What does freedom of speech mean?

Freedom of speech is the political right of every person which allows them to voice their ideas and thoughts. It is recognized as a human right in the United States. Every constitution has a freedom of speech act. However, the limitations on the freedom of speech are also imposed in various parts of the world. All countries define freedom of speech in different ways. Here are some frequently asked questions about freedom of speech.

Is Freedom of speech valid on private property?

Freedom of speech is to protect a person’s right to freedom of expression. A person is free to state their own opinions, ideas and form of expression verbally within their own property. However, freedom of speech is limited and should not be confused with verbal attacks or should it be used to provoke riots. Freedom of speech is practiced within the rights prescribed in the freedom of speech act.

Is it a proper policy for a democratic government to have a very broad interpretation of 1st freedom of speech amendment?

This is a matter of opinion and that may differ from person to person, depending on their views. According to a common view, it is very important for any democratic government to have a proper amendment of the freedom of speech. The right to freedom of speech, and the ability to speak freely, without worrying about persecution, is the prime focus to any political party in USA.

Are the rights to freedom of speech exercised at the school level?

If the school has certain guidelines regarding the issue and they are not being adhered to, then it may be considered a violation of freedom of speech. However, punishing for merely expressing ones ideas and views will be considered a violation of your right to freedom of speech. Freedom of speech at school level is equally important as at any other level.

How to protect my freedom of speech from defamation claims?

Defamation is not covered under the freedom of speech act. Defamation is speaking false accusations, words or rumors which insults or results in an abuse of an individual or their reputation. Whenever you say or publish anything, you have to be careful that the content that is published will not be construed as harmful, abusive or false statements.

Is it a violation of freedom of speech to not be able to voice your opinion publically?

Freedom of speech has various aspects to it. Public speaking does not confine to one issue. It depends on the issue at the time, since public speaking varies. The general rule usually is that, if it is not offensive then it cannot be a violation in any case.

Freedom of speech forms an extensively important part of every country and individuals that make up the country. It is a human right and people should be given the freedom to exercise the right to speak freely. The awareness regarding the same should be spread across the masses so no individual is violated of their right to freedom of speech. If you are experiencing a violation of your freedom of speech, ask an Expert to answer any question you may have.

Recent Freedom of Speech Questions

  • My daughter who is 18, just dropped out of college after living

    My daughter who is 18, just dropped out of college after living there only one semester. Long story shory: she lived in a dry dorm. Everyone was freshman. No alcohol allowed at all. In the handbook it states if alcohol is found in a dorm room, BOTH roommates will be held accountable. My daughter found alcohol in their dorm room since October. The first time she found it, she did the difficult, but mature thing, and confronted her roommate herself. Her roommate told her she she live in sober housing. My daughter told her no, this is her room too, and they are in dry housing. My daughter found alcohol again. This time she went to the RA. the RA told my daughter there is nothing she can do, and my daughter has to work it out with her roommate. My daughter found alcohol again. This time I told her to write an email to the RA and cc it to the RD. The RA met with my daughter and the roommate. The roomate admitted she had a hook and said she will not guarantee she will not drink again or will not bring alcohol in the room again.
    At that point, the roomate was so upset with my daughter for telling on her, she moved her mattress out if the room for over 25 days. She did not sleep in the room. During that time, the roomate said she would find a place to live next semester. But DURING FINALS! The roomate changed her mind and said she wasn't leaving her room. Saint Anselm College turned my daughter into a target. They told her one of them needs to move out. My daughter did nothing wrong. She doesn't drink, doesn't use drugs, nothing. She loved going to school there. I talked to so many "high -up" position people there, and nobody cared about my daughter. I told them she was crying and falling apart in her room, and they just continued to say someone has to move out. Why should my daughter move out if she did nothing wrong?
    When I spoke to the director of the RD, she had the nerve to tell me they had just out another set of roommates on a contract because one roomate was putting her alarm clock on at 5:30am and waking up the other roomate. I asked this staff person if they could put my daughters roomate on a contract since she admitted to the RA that she does drink in the room and wouldn't guarantee she wouldn't do it again. I was told NO, WE don't do that here.
    My daughter withdrew and is mentally a mess. She can't sleep. She cries constantly. She had no justice. She was victimized for doing the right thing. I have so many emails from and to the college that prove they didn't do anything to help my daughter. All they wanted to do was move her (displace the victim)
  • I'm living in a apartment with my girlfriend. She is not on

    I'm living in a apartment with my girlfriend. She is not on the rental agreement. We are having serious relationship issues, she will not leave the apartment. My question is how can I get her out of the apartment; or, if I decide to leave, how can I go about moving out. I know she will cause trouble, e.g., make a scene, physically assault me, or, call the police and make false claims against me, etc.
  • I was involved in an accident while on a trip through Lake

    I was involved in an accident while on a trip through Lake Charles, Louisiana. The other driver and I agree to settle the damage to his truck privately. I obtained his registration and contact information. We didn't have any papers I gave him my card and agreed to contact him the next day when I was back at my home in Houston, Texas. I then left the accident scene and shortly after received a call from the local police. I was at a local bank doing business. They came to me at the bank and issued tickets for no insurance, illegal U turn and leaving the accident scene without reporting same. The Ticket scheduled the future arraignment on a Sunday some 2 months in the future. Obviously I have no opportunity to meet that arraignment date as no court occurs on that date. I have obtained a release from the other driver and paid him for his damages. What is the law in Louisiana when the police make an error on the ticket? Would the city prosector dismiss this case.
