"Most of us tend to think of “speech” and “press” in the relatively traditional modes of the spoken and printed word… We should bear in mind that – whatever the Framers of the Bill of Rights may have expected – the First Amendment has adapted over the years to telephones, motion pictures, radio and television broadcasting, fax, cable, and is now just beginning to take measure of digital communication."
Free Speech and the College Community, 1997

    The argument or statement above is based on legal positivism. Legal Positivism requires a multiple of legal definitions concerning each and every scenario as may exist. The Constitution and its original 10 Amendments were / are a Common Law Document(s) based on Natural Law principles. The 'principle' is all inclusive while, the quote's reference to 'adapted ... to' - is an administrative red herring distraction, intended to keep the ignorant enslaved. AND, allow the criminals their loopholes.
