to express & preserve his ideas
I find it interesting how in the original document the idea of expressing and preserving one's ideas is mentioned. Not only does this resemble Jefferson's ideals that are expressed in the First Amendment, it is also a topic that is extremely relevant at UVa today. UVa has had to had white supremacists voice their ideas due to this ideal and has received a lot of backlash because of it. UVa's current problems represent the difficult balance between freedom of speech and safety.
