Quote from Justice Hugo L. Black 

"What finally emerges from the 'clear and present danger' cases
is a working principle that the substantive evil must be extremely
serious and the degree of imminence extremely high before utterances
can be punished... It must be taken as a command of the broadest scope
that explicit language, read in the context of a liberty-loving society,
will allow."
