First carefully read the case study: BULLYING OUR FIRST AMENDMENT .pdf
Then develop your comments based on the following prompts:
- Do you agree that Carter should be held legally and ethically accountable for her text messages to Roy? (Incorporate personal perspectives balanced with what you learned in this lesson’s text reading.)
- Should we hold individuals legally responsible for the actions that others take in response to our speech acts? Does it matter if we say something once or many times to the other person? (Refer back to the reading, your own perspective, and/or pull from other sources.)
- Finally, describe 3 core principles of ethics and/or free speech that you intend to follow when speaking in this class and beyond. (Take time to think this through and commit to what you value.)
Ultimately, you’ll want to develop a minimum of 3 paragraphs (one paragraph of 10-12 sentences per bullet point).
