FC: Tinker v. Des Moines | Jaeon Kwak and Evan Hughes

7: Don't think: Look! -Ludwig Wittgenstein

10: Justice Hugo Black

14: The decision had a lasting influence upon free speech law far beyond the limits of war protest. It set the standard that a mere "undifferentiated fear" that disruption might happen is not enough reason to forbid speech.

15: In Healy v. James, a free speech case that involved a group at a college that wanted to form a chapter of students for Democratic Society, the Tinker case was used as a precedent.

16: In 1971, a crudely worded draft protest occurred and Justice Harlan said that prosecuting a defendant for a choice of words was wrong. | In 1986, a high school student named Matthew Fraser gave a controversial speech full of sexual references. The Supreme Court ruled that the school was allowed to enforce socially appropriate behavior.

17: A school newspaper case, Hazelwood School District v. Kuhlmeier, also used the case as a precedent. The Court decided that the school could control what was said in school-sponsored publication. | In 1985, when Bridget Mergens wanted to start a Christian club at her high school, and the Court found that this did not violate the Establishment Clause. | In Rosenberger v. University of Virginia, the Court held that UVA should fund Rosenberger's Christian publication due to freedom of speech.

20: As long as I live, I'll hear waterfalls and birds and winds sing. I'll interpret the rocks, learn the language of flood, storm, and the avalanche. I'll acquaint myself with the glaciers and wild gardens, and get as near the heart of the world as I can. -John Muir
