Internet Censorship
It has been two-hundred and nine years since the Bill of Rights was ratified. I doubt that our Founding Fathers ever imagined the changes that would come over our country. Although the Constitution has held up through the years, it cannot be argued that in the last fifty years especially, issues come up daily that seem to test the strength and integrity of our sacred Constitution. The Internet, for example, has caused more controversy than anything we have ever seen. The biggest issue: Cens...

Censorship *****'s
Censorship *****’s “Censorship, so far as I see it, is like a law which prohibits swimming altogether because such a law will prevent someone from swimming in a sewer” (Brower 1).

Though it is highly controversial, hazardous to literature, and unconstitutional, censorship is rampant in America. Censorship is defined as “P...

Things like this happen everyday, people mask their sex and age to avoid or attract attention on the Internet. This is only one of the reasons why the government wants to censor the Internet. They claim they want to ‘protect’ the children by limiting the amount of ‘reality’ they ar...

Internet Censorship
Is Internet Censorship Needed? Internet censorship seems to be the target of many debates nowadays in the U.S. due to the rising popularity of the internet and the large amounts of pornography, warez, illegal drugs, and general threats to society. It is a very hard subject to handle, after all no one really is in charge of the internet, and in fact no one really owns it except perhaps the “millions of people throughout the world who contribute to it in various ways” (Burton). The argument fo...

Censorship
Probably the most obvious example of intolerance in our society today is the existence of censorship. I have yet to encounter a valid argument for any form of censorship. Such arguments as are presented invariably take the form of concern for the well being of others , children frequently being the alleged victims quoted . The arguments are specious and shallow and constitute nothing more than the imposition of one groups morality on another. As it stands, the current position is farci...

Why There Should be Censorship Censorship is the examination of material for objectionable matter. It is used to keep material from influencing people the wrong way. A book has always been able to affect people, either positively or negatively. And censorship of books makes sure that way is positive.

In the United Kingdom, state secrets and personal attacks are off limits on the Internet. Laws are strict and the government is extremely interested in regulating t...
