In the century and a half since the Bill of Rights was adopted it was inevitable that movements and groups should arise in our nation which would seek to shatter its national unity and to impose their will upon the freedom of others. Every one of the guarantees in the Bill of Rights has been brought into jeopardy at one time or another. While those who framed the Bill of Bights probably felt that the greatest dangers to freedom would come from Congress and the National Government, our historical experience has shown that these do not represent the only or even the chief threats, There have been similar dangers from state governments, from the propaganda of foreign governments and from groups without our own population*; . . "The Bill of Rights is not only a form of insurance for the individual. There are numerous groups of people in the country for whom it represents the very breath of existence. 'This is true of all the religious minorities, Who owe their freedom of faith ., the Bill , of, ,Highls..^,. rv .,, ..... ;"This is ...true also of all who are engaged in newspaper work, cither as owners or editors or writers; all who are engaged in publishing; all who depend for their livelihood on the chance to exercise their art upon the radio and in the motion pictures. Without these guarantees of freedom IjL of . speech, their arts and indus- v tries would , become a mockery of the creative impulse that gives them meaning today. "It is true of all of those engaged in teaching or in writing. Without freedom of thought their thinking would shrivel up. Without, freedom of speech they would ultimately have nothing to say. "This is true of all who find meaning and strength in forums, groups and club meetings, and union meetings. Without 'The right of the people peaceably to ass- semble', these could have no existence. "This is true of all trade-union groups. Without the right of assembly and petition, they could not seek to improve their living standards and working conditions. "This is true of every minority political party. Without a guarantee of freedom of opposition, we should have as other countries linvc toduy; a one-party state, in which diverse political views were suppressed,, and the .right of political criticism ceased to exist." * *' * By WILLIS THORNTON The Grim Task That Has Been Given Us Tlie first shattering explosions, of bombs in Hawaii did one good thing for the American people, even while their objectives."
