Weegy: "Freedom of expression is the matrix, the indispensable condition, of nearly every other form of freedoms." Benjamin Cardozo was stating that freedom of expression is the structure of all the other freedoms. [ Freedom of expression is a very valuable freedom. It lets you express your own thoughts and feelings and show your beliefs and ideas. In Tinker vs. Des Moines, teenagers John Tinker, Mary Beth Tinker, and Christopher Echardt, decided to wear armbands to protest the Vietnam War. The principals of the Des Moines school district asked the students to take the armbands off. They refused to do so, and they were suspended from school. The students took this case all the way to the Supreme Court where they won 7-2 because the Supreme Court thought it was violating their freedom of expression.
