Media and Civility
Freedom of the Press
Freedom of the press protects the right to obtain and publish information or opinions without government censorship or fear of punishment.
Censorship occurs when the government examines publications and productions and prohibits the use of material it finds offensive.
Freedom Of Speech

Religion is the belief in and worship of a superhuman controlling power, for example a personal God or gods.
1st Amendment
Justice and Human Rights
People want to make a lasting legacy in society, so they petition for what they assume is just for the human race.
Beliefs and Values
People also want to protect their collective conscious, so they petition for them to be okay in society.

Why people choose religions ?
*It is their belief
*Need something to make sense in their life.
*People want hope, and true belief gives hope .

Due to the fear of government powers over ruling that of individuals, the bill of rights was developed to give citizens their own way of self governance.
Enables citizens to be freely spoken
Aim to protect those consider the "uncivil" speakers, those who go against the moral of society, such as inequality of rights.
Profanity, obscenity, and threats are unprotected form of speech therefore have consequences

People may also petition to raise awareness on an issue and try to change it.
Maintaining Civility Through 1st Amendment
1st amendment established in order to maintain civility.
Freedom of speech, religion and press
Freedom to assemble and petition
For Example, In Legally Blonde: Red, White and Blonde. Elle Woods tries to make it illegal for companies to test on animals. In order for that to happen she has to get 218 signature
For example, my Sophomore year one of my friends tried to get people to petition for a gay/straight alliance club at our school.
Right to Assemble
Allows opportunity to gather in large numbers for support of a cause.
We see examples of this in our country and others both recently and historically.
The 2014 World Press Freedom Index spotlights the negative impact of conflicts on freedom of information and its protagonists.
Every year, Reporters Without Borders establishes a ranking of countries in terms of their freedom of the press.
Reporters can also state partially true information, such as it happened on the radio in 1951: The World of the Worlds.
Others and Negatives
The United States
The government may not prevent the publication of a newspaper, even when there is reason to believe that it is about to reveal information that will endanger our national security.
We are very lucky to be part of the 17 percent of the world that has freedom like we do.
The March on Washington
200,000 people, August 28, 1963

Why People not
Chose Religion?
*They don't believe
*They think all the religions are like a story and some people made it up.
*People want to live and feel free
Civility: disagreeing without disrespecting...BE POLITE
Assembly: Get together to support a cause
Religion: Get together to believe and have hope
Press: obtain and share info without government censoring.
Speech: Protects 'uncivil' speakers such as activist, but will always have consequences.
Petition: Signatures to make CHANGES
For example, whenever a senator wants to pass a law both houses have to approve before they can pass it. If the President Vetoes it, the congress can override the veto with 2/3 of congress approval.
a formal written request, typically one signed by many people, appealing to authority with respect to a particular cause.
Everything links together in a way. The 1st amendment allows people to get together, share a passion, exchange information, and be able to disagree. People at times think that because of the first amendment it is okay to be rude and disrespectful, BUT that is being uncivil. And we believe that civility and the first amendment go hand in hand. So go on accept the fact that we all have the right to be heard, and let others know that too. Speak but don't be unCIVIL.
More Examples
