Many Americans might not be aware of this, but theirs is the only country on Earth where a person can express an opinion, any opinion, without fear of arrest. The reason for this, the only reason for it, is the First Amendment of the Constitution, whose forty-five words are among the most important ever written in the English language. The First Amendment protects Americans from (among other things) the kind of unjust and tyrannical speech laws that have become the norm here in Europe, where the wrong opinion can literally send you to jail.
So, if I was an American, I would be paying close attention to the rapidly changing state of free speech in Progressive Europe, and even closer attention to the health and integrity of the First Amendment, which is going to come under sustained attack from this generation of progressively miseducated halfwits.
