The first amendment was the first major enactment in the constitution of the United States that guaranteed the freedom of expression to all Americans. The amendment prohibited the United States congress from coming up with laws that prohibited the free exercise of individual religious belief, infringe on the individual freedom of speech, limits individual right to assemble freely, or limits individual right to petition the government in order to get redress for grievance. The amendment specifies our rights in different aspects including our belief, religious ideologies, and our freedom of expression. The first amendment assert that individuals right of expression cannot be denied through the action of any private or public institution, enactment of law, political pressure or any of other factor. This amendment therefore guaranteed individual freedom of expression in their everyday interaction with other people and with authority.
