Drawing The Line On The New Censorship
Censorship is a great temptation, particularly when we see something that offends or frightens us. At such times, our best defense is to remember what J. M. Coetzee writes in Giving Offense: Essays on Censorship. "By their very nature, censors wound their own vision when they restrict what others can see. The one who pronounces the ban ... becomes, in effect, the blind one, the one at the center of the ring in the game of blind man's bluff." But the new landscape of ideas and their control leav...

Censorship: From "Obscene" Material
Censorship From "Obscene" Material Today, in the 1990's, citizens in our society are being bombarded with obscene material from every direction.

The freedom of speech has always been considered a right, but that doesn't mean that you c...

The three main objectives in this piece I will pursue is why we should allow artists to express themselves, why r...

Art & Censorship
Art & Censorship The nature of art determines that it cannot be censored under any condition. Art thrives in an environment where expression is free and limitless. Without this freedom, art can exist, but something valuable will be lost from it. When art loses the purity of its original intended form, it cannot be presented at its full potential. We cannot censor art. Art is any medium that is expressed creatively and succeeds in enlightening a truth about the human condition. The "huma...

Censorship: Helpful or Hindering?
What exactly is censorship? Some feel censorship is a violation of their rights. Others say censorship is a must in the violent, abusive world we call “society.” Who has the right to censor? Who doesn’t? What needs to be censored, and what doesn’t? The fact of the matter is that there are many pros and cons in the music and entertainment industry about censorship. Personally, I believe that the consumers and viewers should be charged with the ultimate responsibility of censorship. One ma...

Censorship Of Violence
Why does anyone care if our society is aggressive? Does the kid who decides to fire a gun into his school do so because he watched Natural Born Killers? Is violence in our communities really causing anyone any abnormal amount of heartache? To the victims, and the families and friends of the victims, surely it does.

A 43-year-old man from Boston was having a steamy cyber affair with who he thought to be a 23-year-old woman.
