Some commentators have pointed out how the Brandenburg test does
not explicitly take into account the severity of the harm which is
threatened (speech must be directed at and lead to some kind of
“lawless” action). Reading the test literally, a speaker who
advocated use of nuclear weapons for terrorist purposes, but only
after a two-year moratorium, would not be punished (since the harm
would be serious but not “imminent”).
