PREFACE

Coexistence on this tightly knit earth should be viewed as an existence not only without wars but also without [the government] telling us how to live, what to say, what to think, what to know, and what not to know.

—Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn, from a speech given September 11,1973

Where are all the so-called conservative tax-exemptorganizations and so-called liberal-left tax-exempt organizationsdedicated to preserving and supporting Americans' Constitutionalrights?

It appears they have ALL gone underground.

Our free speech rights under the Constitution are guaranteedfor ALL American Citizens - Indians, blacks, whites, gays, atheists,Christians, communists, fascists, conservatives,lunatics...ALL. If I forgot a group, please, nooffense intended.

It is a dream deeply rooted in the American dream.
I have a dream that one day this nation will rise up and live out the true meaning of its creed: 'We hold these truths to be self-evident: that all men are created equal.'
I have a dream that one day on the red hills of Georgia the sons of former slaves and the sons of former slave owners will be able to sit down together at the table of brotherhood.
I have a dream that one day even the state of Mississippi, a state sweltering with the heat of injustice, sweltering with the heat of oppression, will be transformed into an oasis of freedom and justice.
I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character.
I have a dream today.
I have a dream that one day, down in Alabama, with its vicious racists, with its governor having his lips dripping with the words of interposition and nullification; one day right there in Alabama, little black boys and black girls will be able to join hands with little white boys and white girls as sisters and brothers.
I have a dream today.”
(Quoted verbatim from the Martin Luther King’s I have a Dream speech)

This speech turned out to be the finest ever in the American history and the one which made civil rights the topmost agenda of the United States’ Congress, leading to the inclusion of the above passage in the Civil Rights Act, 1964.
50 years later on August 28, 2013, on the 50th Anniversary of the March on Washington, there were several events held at the same venue, including the March on Washington Commemoration and Global Freedom Festival, to remember that landmark day in the history of the world.
