    Shouting "fire" in a crowded theater, slander and/or libel, incitement to violence, conspiracy, overt racism, and more. The point is that freedom of speech can not be absolute but must be seen in the context of other factors both legal and social.

    With the freedom of speech, the government has limitations to it. It's basically that you can't think that you can do whatever because you are still a citizen and you duties, responsibilities, rights and he restrictions. The main 2 is one, you can't use it to harm others like shouting, "Fire!" in a crowded movie theater for fun because your harming others. The other main one is libel and slander, in other words, saying untrue things (lying) because it's false and you could face consequences for it. Another one is revealing classified information because it's private such as revealing locations for war, etc. Another one is removing a book from a library because you don't like it, although you have rights with this amendment you can't do everything you want.
