Two QuestionsTwo quick questions. They're partially hypothetical, but feel free to chime in.
Would prohibiting flag burning be a "thought crime" similar to what some on the right say about hate crimes? After all, the person would be punished based on his or her intent and motivations, and even message. Someone that burned a red cloth instead of a red, white, and blue flag would not get the same punishment. The message is being punished, not the act, right?
I completely can't think of the other question now. Who am I? I'll update this if it comes to mind later.
