Amusing satire on collective rights view
Rand Simberg does a good job of reducing collective rights to absurdity. The Framers lived in a time when printing presses were rare, and only responsible people owned them; they could not have foreseen the internet, which allows virtually anyone to spew out misleading ideas, to the entire world, at thousands of words a second.
(Actually, one could make a still stronger historical argument. Until 1695, you had to have a goverment permit to publish a book on politics; in the early 1800s, a Congress that included some Framers enacted the Alien and Sedition Acts, that allowed prosecution of any person who made false and defamatory statements about the Congress or the President).
