The government has undertaken a major role in protecting, structuring, organizing and allocating opportunities for free speech. In light of those activities, a view of free speech law which concentrates on government censorship is inadequate to modern communications, political campaign and education law. First Amendment doctrine needs to be reexamined to develop standards for government intervention which will preserve freedom of thought. The article examines the possibility that government allocation of speech resources should be built on the basis of a concept of fairness or equality.
