Could someone explain what the Dennis vs. United States trial 1951 was about? I'm having a little bit of trouble understanding it. I googled it, but I just need a brief summary that explains well (:

    The court agreed with the prosecution that being a member of a group (USA Communist Party) that said they wished to overthrow the government of the United States was NOT protected by the first amendment "abridging the freedom of speech" clause and the defendants were convicted. Since that time the decision has basically been overturned and later courts have agreed that babbling about someday overthrowing the government was in a completely different category than actually planning and initiating a revolution.
