The Government's Benevolence

A law that can be directed against speech found offensive to some portion of the public can be turned against minority and dissenting views to the detriment of all.  The First Amendment does not entrust that power to the government’s benevolence.

-- Justice Anthony Kennedy in a concurring opinion in Matal v. Tam, 19 June 2017
