Shock Survey: 40% Of Americans Cannot Name A Single Right Guaranteed By The First Amendment

From The Daily Wire:
The Freedom Forum Institute has released its annual “State of the First Amendment” (SOFA) survey, and the results paint a dismal portrait of the American electorate. 
The survey of 1,009 American adults was conducted in May and June of 2018 by the Fors Marsh Group in partnership with Lata Nott and Gene Policinski of FFI. The survey has a margin of error of 3.7%. 
When asked to name the freedoms guaranteed by the First Amendment, only one person was able to name all five. 2% of respondents were able to name the right to petition the government for redress of grievances; 12% were able to name the right of peaceful assembly; 13% were able to name freedom of the press; 15% were able to name freedom of religion; and 56% were able to name freedom of speech.

Pastorius, what is that painting(?) used as illustration? It is horrifying and fascinating.

So, of course, is the failure of most of US citizens to be able to name the freedoms protected by the First Amendment.

That is a scene from the film, Idiocracy.

Great movie.
