Chapter 5 opens with a brief background to the First Amendment, recounting the history of the Bill of Rights. Thereafter, the chapter shifts to the substance of the First Amendment. The First Amendment to the U.S. Constitution famously sets forth some of the most fundamental rights that human beings possess. Three such rights are the focus of this book: freedom of religion, freedom of speech, and freedom of association. The First Amendment contains other rights, however, namely the freedom of the press, the freedom of assembly, and the freedom of petition. Chapter 5 considers the extent to which jurisprudence regarding these other freedoms bears (or should bear) upon the question of corporate speech, religion, and association rights.
