During colonial times in America, if you wanted to convince or inform people about some issue that you considered important, you went to the local printer and got some pamphlets printed. You then handed them out, read them to anybody that was interested, nailed them to the town bulletin board, or the nearest tree. The first amendment was specifically written to protect this type of activity and the writers or "pamphleteers".Who Links Here

Refdesk Thoughts of the Day:
"The penalty good men pay for indifference..."
"The penalty good men pay for indifference to public affairs is to be ruled
by evil men."
"Equal laws protecting equal rights … the best guarantee of loyalty and
love of country."
"We travel together, passengers on a little space ship, dependent on its
vulnerable reserves of air and soil; all committed for our safety to its
security and peace; preserved from annihilation only by the care, the work, and,
I will say, the love we give our fragile craft."
-Adlai Ewing Stevenson
