The First Amendment is a tenacious right that is cherished by every American. It is truly a privilege for us to have the ability to withhold our private life from the public sphere, namely for the sake of our autonomy. On the other hand, the First Amendment also allows us to express our private life in the public sphere, yet that was not always the case; however that right has been gradated to Americans through the courts interpretation and that is mainly due to the legal endeavor set forth by a group of Jehovah’s Witnesses, staring with the Cantwell and Gobitis family in early 20th century. This podcast by The Washington Post lucidly explains the story of these Jehovah’s litigants and how they came to be legal pioneers.
