Storyline

STREETWRITE is a 23-minute movie musical about freedom of speech that asks the question, "How can speech be free, if only those who pay can speak?" The film examines the various ways people struggle to express themselves in situations where free speech is curtailed or suppressed. It also explores how certain kinds of expression can be repressive to individuals. Musical numbers convey these topics and the arguments that ensue are debated in a courtroom sequence. Graffiti, public murals, commercial billboards and hallway posters form the visual backdrop for these issues. Written by Blanche Baker

Wow, the makers didn't read the First amendment
24 October 2019 | by random-70778See all my reviews

The First Amendment is not a right to deface private property of others, be you're Picasso or some talent-less idiot.It has to do with government prohibitions. it.

lt also doesn't provide protection from actual harmful actions. For example the Second Amendment has for near 250 years protected the right of individuals to keep and bear arms -- but you can't claim Second amendment protection if you just go shoot someone without them threatening you. Same with defamation, liable etc.: the *government* may not prior restrain your speech, but if you harm someone with speech and they prove it was a tangible harm in court you can be sanctioned -- AFTER.

This film is part of grievance/aggrieved group identity politics that is tearing the country apart and disinforming young people about what the Constitution says.
