I find it sadly humorous that you would,, cherry pick the Sedition Act section to illustrate your point, which is well taken.
Freedom of speech has a long history of evolution and change within America, and given that Sovereigns and Freeman are basically labeled 'seditious'
and homeland terrorist because they wish to address the basics of what it means to be an American I concur.
Again, it may very well be time for Humans to realize that America was the Experiment in Freedom. Now here in the 21st century we find ourselves
subject to powers that have destroyed our basic document to the point that more laws are heaped upon more laws to CONTROL the population not FREE
I again return to what it means to have Basic HUMAN RIGHTS, even if the Constitution and other founding documents are failing in that task, I suggest
an upgrade as our division is based on a misunderstanding of what it means to be a FREE HUMAN BEING.
If that puts me in a position to say I am above the Law of the Land, so be it. Because I guess my liberal reading of such documents only instilled in
me an urge for more FREEDOM not LeSS.
a side note Jefferson freed many of those who were fined and imprisoned by this act,,,, even as he supported it.
The Evolution of our founding documents took a wrong turn,,, be it at the end of the civil war, when the Federal Gov. became more powerful, or at the
PATRIOT Act, which nose dived our freedoms,, or the most recent laws enacted which allows our Government to Kill us without Due Process of the Law
they say the Federal Gov upholds.
Our slippery slope is now a ice covered path, chilled with the Authoritarian foundations of truth. That I do not agree with or will I abide as they
ignore basic Human dignity and rights.
You would follow a government regardless of the moral ethics they produce? That is what happened to Germany if I remember my history correctly,,,
which I know very well and am sure of the difference between Fascist and Free states.
Our Tribalism/Nationalism will destroy us,, thus again I refer you to your own Humanity ,,, not any Laws that you may think supercedes it.
