Homework Help: GOVERNMENT

Posted by JAYLEE on Monday, January 15, 2007 at 5:07pm.

TWO QUESTIONS
1. Discuss 2 limitations the supreme court has imposed on the exercise of 1st Amendment rights to free speech? On what grounds have these limitations been justified?
2. What is due process of law? Describe 2 of the due process guarantees provided by the constitution.
(i think due process of law means the government is not supposed to act unfair of arbitrary.)

1. The classic exceptions to free speech are:
(a) reckless endangerment of people by deliberate false statements, i.e,
libel and "shouting 'fire' in a crowded theater" (when there is no fire), or similar situations.
(b) advocating overthrow of the government by force and violence

2. For a discussion of "due process", guarantees of which are contained in the fifth and fourteenth amendments, see
