6. Freedom of Association
Along with the freedom of speech, our freedom to associate with others is under attack as well. Americans must watch out for who they hang out with. For them, a little political activism could come at a great cost.
The government has the power to monitor and infiltrate political and religious groups. It doesn’t even matter if they’ve been convicted of a crime before. This is an egregious assault on our liberty. Without this freedom, we lose a crucial part of our national identity.
