This was first done, without tea, in the cold, amid peril, at the Boston Tea Party. "We're mad as hell and we are not going to take it anymore!" They showed.
Throughout recorded time, oligarchical institutions have controlled, limited and restricted the five stages of patriotism in one way or another. The original patriots formulated the First Amendment by combining the timeless elements of individual empowerment. The power of the individual together with other individuals openly using the First Amendment is what makes the U.S.A. a great nation.
The First Amendment, like any group of words, images, or events, is open for interpretation. These individual interpretations are based on information, the events and circumstances of the time have great influence on individual interpretation. However there are also institutionalized tolerations which might influence individual interpretations. Misleading institutional beliefs might interfere with accurate interpretations of the First Amendment or any number of conditions and circumstances. The First Amendment inarguably allows questioning of interpretations in the first place and enables them to be bettered.
Many interpret the
First Amendment as protecting their rights to worship and gather as they please
and as an assurance of the freedom of speech, but it is more than that. The First Amendment protects these right also
prescribes direction to patriotism in five stages. One might interpret there to be more or less
rights described in the First Amendment.
Perhaps another individual interpretation may find there are more or
less rights addressed in the First Amendment.
The interpretation may vary, but the intent is inarguable. The First Amendment describes, prescribes and
The First Amendment presents five different rights that independently provide for liberty. Together they are interrelated and interconnected, prescribing patriotism's fine points and securing liberty. Patriotism secures liberty and the First Amendment exemplifies, clarifies and secures patriotism. The five stages are rarely enacted altogether separately. They are distinguished concepts that form together in varying concentrations. Each of these rights could stand alone, but like people together, they are more powerful combined. Patriotism has five stages, as presented in the First Amendment, practiced and put into law by the original patriots. The same formula applies now, as was applied in 1773.
