 Terminiello V. Chicago

A "breach of peace" ordinance of the City of Chicago which banned speech which "stirs the public to anger, invites dispute, brings about a condition of unrest, or creates a disturbance" was unconstitutional.




"The vitality of civil and political institutions in our society depends on free discussion...
The right to speak freely and to promote diversity of ideas and programs
is therefore one of the chief distinctions that sets us apart from totalitarian regimes."



[Speech must be] "..likely to produce a clear and present danger of a serious substantive evil
that rises far above public inconvenience, annoyance, or unrest.


...



"A function of free speech under our system is to invite dispute.
It may indeed best serve its high purpose when it induces a condition of unrest,
creates dissatisfaction with conditions as they are, or even stirs people to anger."




Justice Douglas, writing for the majority
