    Censorship- good or bad?

    Censorship is when something, or a part of something, is removed for the sake of security or political correctness. Many things in modern society are censored. This includes newspaper articles, news broadcasts, television in general, music, video games, and also anime.
    In recent months, a danish cartoon contained an image of Muhammad, and a riot insued. This has brought the issue of freedom of speach into debate recently. Do you think that it is right to censor anything in order to keep from offending someone, or should the right to freedom of speach override everything else?

    Thank you Sazuka for this awesome signature!

    You're a louse, Roger Smith.

    oh wow...
    so that's the origin of the recent episode(s) of South Park...
    it all makes sense now
    geez... I should start paying attention to the news o_O
    oh well...

    censorship is good sometimes
    only to a certain point
    but sometimes, all we need is good parenting and parents that give a firm "NO" if their children want to purchase a "M" game or buy anime like Elfen Lied or at least play/watch it with them and remind them what's right and what's wrong and all that
    you can't forbid them because they'll eventually get access to it in the end by friends in school and all that

    good times
    I love my girlfriend.

    I would say yes/no
    We all know that S.. is very widely availible on the net if u wanna see some u can always download some so yeah censorship can only be applied to tv but then again this is a big problem just like copyright.
    If u go to the torrents u can download everything your heart desires u just need someone to seed it.U know all this censorship is a very good idea like everything else ppl put in to place to try and prevent crime and stuff like that but i get the feeling that even if they put in a law the ppl just don't care they just do what they want so yeah put in censorship it won't stop most ppl wanting to see uncensored stuff like naked fotos of celebrities or whatever.

    Does it realy help putting it in or is this just a thing to scare the not knowledgable ppl away.
    the funny thing is i spoke a oke the other day and we were chatting about tv, movies and stuff and i mentioned if he doesn't find a movie download it there is sites that charge u $9.99 a month subscribtion and u can downbload as much as u can.I actually had to show him he did not believe me.So yeah copyright my butt.

    it depends on what is being censored!!! true art should never be censored ever!

    A level of censorship is always required in stuff thats violent of something like that but newspapers and talk shows shouldnt be censored otherwise thats taking away our freedom of speech and i think that the muslim community took things too far with that cartoon its not really that bad and wasnt incredibly offensive
    92% of teens moved to rap. if u are part of the 8% that rock out every day, put this on your sig!!!!

    Re: Censorship- good or bad?

    Censorship is determined by what the content is and what type of people will be viewing it. This is done to protect people from being offended in anyway. Sure, some of us could care less about what we see or hear but there are people out there that are really sensitive. It's done for the best of everyone's benefit...

    So my conclusion is that censorship is good.
