Freedom of Speech

In the US, freedom of speech is a protected right, according to the First Amendment. It states that “Congress shall make no law…abridging freedom of speech.” [1] However, even in the US, there are certain restrictions, such as shouting “fire” in a crowded theater, which is illegal because it endangers the lives of others. In Starship Troopers, there are few instances where freedom of speech could come into play.
