Instead of balancing free speech and privacy in its Massachusetts buffer-zone decision, the Supreme Court has chosen to bolster the protection of stalkers at the expense of our right to be reasonably left alone. The Constitution certainly gives you the right to free speech and free association, but not the right to get up in my face and demand I pay attention. Your right to tell me what you think is important but does not include the right to make sure I listen to you. Just because someone chooses to appear in public, for whatever reason, does not mean he or she surrenders any expectation of unencumbered legitimate and peaceful navigation.
However, the Supreme's decision leads me to wonder what position the Court (and legislatures) might take if gun control advocates were to picket potential gun store customers in the same way abortion clinics are harassed.
Perhaps, it is time to adopt the tactics of the unreasonable if we are condemned to live in an unreasonable world.
