Please think hard about about these questions.
When America entered World War I the government issued The Sedition Act of 1918. This was not the only time, Congress under President, John Adams, passed the Alien and Sedition Acts of 1798. The Alien Friends Act allowed the president to deport any non-citizen suspected of plotting against the government, even in peacetime. Most importantly, Congress passed the Sedition Act, which took direct aim at those who spoke out against the president (at the time, Adams) or the Federalist-dominated government. The Republican minority in Congress argued that sedition laws violated the First Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, which protects freedom of speech and the press. The Federalists countered by defining these freedoms in the narrow English manner.
Read Sec. 3 and 4 of The Sedition Act of 1918. Do you agree or disagree with such an act? If you disagree, are there certain parts that you do agree with? Do you think this infringes on the First Amendment. Please think hard about about these questions. Use critical thinking.
