Abstract

What is ability? The Oxford English Dictionary defines ‘ability’ as “The quality in a person or thing which makes an action possible; suitable or sufficient power or proficiency; capability, capacity to do, or (now rare) of doing something." The question then, in discussing the First Amendment, is whether or not ability necessitates action. Does the capability to do or say something mean you must? Or is it a Peter Parker situation: with great power comes great responsibility?
