Take your fight outside. Better yet, into the incinerator. (57) The books Little Black Sambo and Uncle Tom’s Cabin are both books considered offensive. In this society before books were completely banned any book that had the slightest bit of offensive content was viewed as a threat. The entire society is scared to ruffle someone’s feathers, which resulted in the ban.
Another reason they outlawed the flag is because it wasn’t showing any respect for people that fought in a war and got no respect for people that died. Also, people want to have it down because there was starting to be fights about the discussion of the flag being banned or being back up. Also people are also wanting it banned because it has been causing too much trouble in places that started to have. People want it down also because it is a sign of slavery and it is a symbol of a deadly attack on the
However, we don’t feel they should be exempt from punishment due to their freedom of speech; their posts were gravely inappropriate and offensive. They intentionally discriminated against a group of people; they had no regards to other’s statuses as human beings which in our honest opinion is extremely unethical. Every human being should be treated with respect regardless of their culture, ethnicity, race, gender, etc. Johnny's leadership roles within his school simply doesn’t convince us that he was bullied into discriminating others, so we feel that he too should face the consequences. As a leader he should have known better.
However, freedom of speech does not include the right to incite actions that would harm others or the distribution of obscene material (Administrative Office of the U.S. Courts, 2000). There are many reasons why various organizations and people are censoring different kinds of topics; some people say it’s the right thing to do and others think its controversial to the first amendment.
Should art be censored? Throughout history, many have felt the need to remove or suppress material that they consider to be morally or politically objectionable, such as books, films, or other materials. They feel that these materials should not be taught in schools or shown in public museums. These people believe no one should be subjected to something that may be against their teachings or beliefs. Others, however, do not feel that these or any works of art should be suppressed.
I disagree because if someone or some group has a problem with government’s actions against their own or some other country, they shouldn’t start burning flags or other things. Burning a national flag is disrespectful since it is not going to change anything and it will send a wrong signal to others that doing this is a right way to show your opposition to any policy. There are lot of things which we don’t agree with but that should not result in a violence or burning flags and other things. Protect can be done in a peaceful manner and there are other avenues to make your voice and opinion
The suppression of hate propaganda signifies an infringement of individual’s freedom of expression. An activity that conveys a message through non-violent forms of expression is protected under the s.2 of the Charter regardless of how offensive it is. Moreover, there was a misapplication of Charter, which made s.319 (2) of the Criminal Code to fail the proportionality test. There was no relation between the criminalization of hate speech and its suppression. Although his comments were offensive, they did not pose any threats they way violence or violence threats would have.
It is important to fight for what is right and fair. However, when fighting for various ideas and beliefs risk the lives of loved ones, innocent people, and cause terrifying disagreements and wars, ideas and beliefs are therefore not worth fighting for. Fighting for ideas and beliefs should not result in the harming of the world and people. The story named “The Sniper” shows how ideas and beliefs are not always worth fighting for. This
The trick with cultural relativism in such a case is that it explicitly prohibits Riefenstahl’s work from being criticized on the pretext that it portrayed cultural realism. Ethical subjectivism interjects with a vehement defense of cinematic effects. However, the exaggerated effect of the film creates a subjective aura of mistrust among communities oppressed
2. Disadvantages of regulations/censorship 2.1 compromising the freedom of speech Censorship compromises the freedom of speech in many different ways. Freedom of speech refers to the right to speak without censorship or being restraint by a higher authority of the organization or country. For example, Compromising the freedom of speech will not allow the society to voice out their negative thoughts or to protest at a government or a government-related event. This example clearly shows that freedom of speech is being compromised as people are unable to voice out what they truly feel and are mostly forced to keep their opinions to themselves as voicing these opinions will make the rest of the society think in a different way and steer them away to generate other ideas or thoughts.
