"The state has the power to protect its citizenry from actual harm, and thus has the power to outlaw one yelling 'Fire!' on a crowded theatre. However, yelling 'Fuck!' in a crowded theatre does not create a clear and present danger to anyone and thus cannot be outlawed. Although they are both four letter words that start with F, the distinction is constitutionally significant."
