3 Libertarian Exceptions. . . Are there any exceptions to our wonderful First Amendment Rights? We got to talking about this in my Mass Comm Law class. The prof gave 3 exceptions that have continuously stood up in court, and are approved of by even the mighty Libertarians in all thier glory. 1.) Defamation (Slander/Libel) 2.) Obscenity 3.) The Right of the Government to Protect Itself - I.E- A Clear and Present Danger What do you think? Are there/should there be any exceptions to our First Amendment rights? There are those purists, such as Justice Hugo Black who would say that under no circumstances should our rights in the First Amendment be refused or overturned in a court of law. And yet, we have these three exceptions that have stood the test of time. Discuss.
